Sandpiper Carries Necessities, Souvenirs, and Family History

August 16, 2016

The Bahamas are certainly a prime travel destination, and if you want to find the perfect souvenir to bring back from your stay on Great Exuma, you’ll be able to find it at Sandpiper Arts & Crafts. This shop features local wares, and everything from handmade pottery and hand-printed t-shirts, to cover ups you could bring to the beach if you forgot to bring your own, and beautiful photographs of landmarks in the area. And Sandpiper is right on Great Exuma, so it’ll be easy to get there from the Grand Isle Resort & Spa.

You can also feel assured that the art here is authentically local—the Minns family has been in the area for generations, and you’ll be able to browse a gallery stocked with three of these generations authentic art work. This level of rootedness on the island also means that this becomes a one-stop shop not only for things you may need and souvenirs you may want, but also for answers to questions you may have about the island’s history or suggestions on where to take your vacation next.
