This is such a lovely little shop and it's loaded with gorgeous hand made pottery, jewellery and a raft of unique gift items that sets Bamboushay apart from most of the other shops. The store faces onto historic Main Street in the heart of Road Town and is directly behind Bamboushay Lounge and Restaurant
on Waterfront Drive.
You will usually find Alex Durante (aka Alexandra) with her head down, toiling away, in her tiny little works space within the store. Alex makes fabulous, hand made necklaces, rings, earings, bracelets and other jewellery items that are very impressive ... but she is particularly fond of working with pearls.
Bamboushay Gift Shop
Alex Durante, Bamboushay Gift Shop
I've known Alex since she was a very young teenager and you couldn't find a nicer person. She's an absolute sweetheart with a marvelous "can do attitude" and a strong determination to succeed at everything she does. Add to that her artistic talent ... and you have a sure fire winner!
All of Alex's creations are one of a kind. There are variations on the same theme of course, but no two pieces are identical. She also makes some lovely hand made soaps and body butter too. Don't ask me what body butter is. I haven't a clue!

Hand Made Bamboushay Pottery
In addition to the jewellery, you will also find some really terrific hand made pottery. I am particularly fond of their wall light sconces. They are fabulous. This is one store you really don't want to miss!

Bamboushay Hand Made Sink
The hand made sink above, trimmed with little fish, starfish and turtles is absolutely lovely! I wish I had the perfect Caribbean cottage to which I could attach it! :)
