Away from the Bay Street throngs, but worth the taxi fare if you are looking for authentic arts and crafts, Doogalik Studios was created by the late great master of Junkanoo art, Jackson Burnside and wife Pam, to promote local culture, art and heritage. The restored historic home displays the work of 40 Bahamian artists and is the centerpiece of three shops including the Craft Cottage – filled with local talent – and the studio of K. Smith. Browse through fine paintings and sculpture, recycled coconut sculptures, exquisite straw bags that have made the O list, masks, goat skin drums, jewelry, home decor items and and an amazing selection of resourceful, creative works made from repurposed items. Saturday brings a farmers market.
