Best shopping place for craft work and batik

I'll be staying at Rendezvous towards the end of the year. Can anyone recommend tours which include shopping for local crafts, particularly batik please, or shops which sell batik?

We shopped at Caribelle Batik and it was wonderful. They have a great selection of reasonably priced batik pieces, as well as other items. Also, there is a fabulous view and photo op from their back deck!

Every single one of your last 16 postings in the St Lucia forum has been a plug for Serenity.

We all know that if you bring Serenity enough business you get free tours yourself. Even though you may have had an excellent experience with Serenity, your postings are becoming nothing short of advertising.

Caribelle Batik is not too far by taxi from the Rendevous or you could go as part of a tour. I have bought a few dresses and shirts from them and like the light cotton materials and styles. Someone from a cruise ship did report on Trip Advisor that what they ordered was never sent to them so better to buy on the day maybe? The views from the shop are lovely and you can take great photos of Castries from there. They sell gifts too.

Lindie,

I forgot to mention apart from Caribelle Batik I also saw a bit of Batik at The Humming Bird Restaurant. They have a small amount of Batik for sale as well.

Rendezvous is less than 5 minutes by taxi from the centre of Castries, where the market and arcade are full of local arts and crafts, like carvings, clay, spices and basketware. You dont need to travel far to get what you want.

The supermarkets are good for the rum and pepper sauce, and Pointe Seraphine and La Place Carenage which are also on Castries waterfront for the duty frees!
