On nearby Charlotte, Henry and Frederick streets, shop the arcade malls and street markets for authentic local crafts and souvenirs.
Trinidad's local craft industry is one of the Caribbean's most vibrant. Memorabilia like miniature steelpans, hand-carved ornaments, do-it-yourself cocktail packs using popular local rums, leather goods and powdered local seasonings for that distinctive Trini flavour, are stocked by most souvenir shops.
Craftsmen selling hand-made leather sandals, belts and wood carvings are found on Independence Square at the corner of Henry and Frederick streets. Charlotte Street is a haven for street vending and the place to find bargains on everything.
