The first thing one notices about this building is the vibrant colors of red, green and gold, but this is just a hint at the wash of color found inside. Outrageously painted animal carvings, including birds, cats, fish and toads in every shape and size grace the grounds. Each piece is unique, the only similarity being the polka-dots that cover each and every item. The pieces are acquired from all over the Caribbean, especially from Haiti, Cuba and Jamaica. The dots are added primarily in Jamaica. Other items on display include authentic Jamaican dolls, sarongs and handmade kitchen towels.
