Shopping in St Eustatias

Lots of shops or businesses are in people’s homes with no visible sign of the trade from the outside, but if you ask for help it will be willingly given and you will find the right place. Offices and stores are usually open 0800-1800, although supermarkets stay open until 1900.


  • Mazinga Gift Shop sells local books and a wide range of gifts and duty free liquor, T82245, F82230.
  • Some local crafts, mostly woodworking, are sold at Paper Corner, Dive Statia and Under the Tree next to Allrun Supermarket.
  • Arts and crafts also sold at the Little House on the Bay, run by the St Eustatius Historical Foundation.
