Famed for its tax free shopping status, Cayman attracts thousands of shoppers each year looking to take advantage of cheaper retail prices than can be found in the US or Europe. Duty free cameras and leather goods are often considerably cheaper. Visitors will also find a wealth of high-end goods such as jewellery, watches, precious stones, antiques and more, all from world-class brands.

Artifacts is a treasure trove of antique maps, prints, silver, coins, jewellery, shipwreck treasures and china, as well as unique, modern handmade glass and ceramics. Located in Cayside Galleries on Seafarers Way in downtown George Town, this is a lovely place to find unique gifts and, literally, treasure!
