Does Curacao have the shopping like St Martin & St Thomas? In particular...a David Yurman store?

Thanks!

If you do a search for David Yurman store/Curacao quite a few sites come up. Freeport Jewelers Curacao sells his jewelry.

embroidered linens, cheeses, clogs to artwork, shopping can turn up some fun finds. but don't expect major bargains on watches, jewelry or electronics. Willemstad is not a duty free port. Hope this helps

Is the Caribbean Handicrafts market a good place to shop? How far is it from the pier? Would there be other places I could find the same merchandise that would be closer to the pier? Are the prices there any different than they would be anyplace else?

Just wondering if it is worth trying to get there.

the market is all along the Channel side of Otrabanda. All ships port on the Otrabanda side...you cannot miss it. They only set up for cruisers. Prices are pretty consistant among them all.....
