Fashion & Shopping in Guernsey
Guernsey is a great place for holiday shopping and has many independently owned stores and high-street chains selling a vast range of goods.
As the capital of the island, St Peter's Port has pedestrianised high streets where you can amble along at your own pace, dipping in and out of stores, without worrying about traffic. Pretty St Peter Port has an impressive choice of gift and perfume shops offering VAT-free shopping.
The Old Quarter of St Peter Port—a few minutes southwest of High Street on foot—is especially good for antiquing and souvenirs, and there are many interesting boutiques and jewelry stores here. Head to the Commercial Arcade and Mill Street for arty shops and designer-wear.
There is no VAT (Value Added Tax) on the island and prices of luxury goods tend to be cheaper than in the UK. Special items produced on Guernsey include local pottery—plates, pots, mugs—jewelry, woolen Guernsey jumpers, and candles.
Handmade Jewellery, Engraving, Jewellery Repairs, Home Decor, Gifts and more! There is something for everyone and if you don't find that special something that you're after on that particular day, we'd be more than happy to have it made up for you.
Candle making can be seen in our workshop where there are many stages before the candle is finished. Enjoy our complex where we have created the all experience shopping opportunity; a magnificent candle gift shop where all types of candles are on display, a fabulous general gift shop, with many exclusive lines, and a selection second to none
One of the few remaining traditional silversmiths on the island, Martyn’s workshop has proved a draw for visitors and his Guernsey-shaped hallmark has become synonymous with quality. What started as a week’s work experience, while still a teenager at secondary school, turned into a life’s work and 36 years on Martyn still has the same passion and drive for the industry.
