Same stuff, different stall

Most stall have the same items and very few of them appear to be made in TCI. I'm not sure how cultural it is to sell items made in China.

This is a good place to buy inexpensive souvenirs; some handcrafted. Great way to help local vendors in Turks & Caicos.

The name is misleading, it's not a cultural center at all. It's nothing more than a handful of locals with booths selling cheap trinkets - with very few locally made items thrown in the mix. If you are indeed looking for locally made items, you're more likely to find them at a roadside stand - or better yet visit the... More

There is very little shopping in Provo and they wanted something handmade from the island (little shark-tooth necklace and container for sea shells).

Nice selection, prices same as any gift store on island. Willing to barter on price, that is the only reason I would return.
