Earlier this month, I bought a tank top (cotton t-shirt material) for $22.00 and a cotton head scarf for $8.00. The longer cotton neck scarves cost more -- around $10 to $15. The barrettes made of cloth were $6.00. T-shirts may have been around $25.00. The dresses made of t-shirt material were $60.00. I believe the men's cotton tropical shirts (buttons & collar, not t-shirts) were around $55.00 to $58.00.
In the past, I have purchased purses, tanks, and scarves and all hold up well. Wash and dry on delicate or hand-wash.
In addition to purchasing items at the Caribelle Batik itself, the Island Hopper in the Circus near the ship also sells Caribelle Batik items at the same prices as what is at Caribelle Batik, but, of course, the selection at Caribelle Batik itself is much more expansive. Look at the map that the ship provides and look for the Circus on the map if you want to find the Island Hopper.
I always check out Island Hopper when we are in St. Kitts because they change the items. One time I bought tropical cloth purses and other times they had the cotton halter dresses. This time they did not have the halter dresses or purses, but did have a better selection of tanks, men's shirts, pareos, and caftans. I thought the lovely pareos were a great bargain at $22.00 because they also included a booklet on how to tie the pareo into skirts, dresses, and halters.
We will be in St. Kitts in January and February again and can report back then. I love the Caribelle Batik items!
