Open daily 9:00am to 6:00pm.
The Art of Bartering
When it comes to shopping at The Bahamas Craft Centre, the art of bartering is a necessary skill. You want to be sure to barter to get a good price, because no price is ever set in stone. However, make sure you don’t start negotiating a price for the fun of it (since it won’t be fun for the vendor). If you’re really interested in an item, find out what the asking price is, then let the bartering games begin!
