This newly launched shop features the artwork and Reggie Medford. His work has been featured in multiple exhibitions in Barbados, America, and Europe. He has perfected a proprietary method to take mahogany tree stumps and repurpose them into beautiful pieces of art.

Many gift shops that are attached to cruise terminals do not sell authentic items made in the country with local materials by a local artist. It was, for this reason, Reggie chose the simple name of his shop, ‘Handmade in Barbados.’ Some of the unique and affordable souvenirs a tourist can purchase are Bookends, Pen & Pencil Holders, Napkin Holders, and Base Clocks. Custom pieces are also available and worldwide shipping can be arranged.

The shop is staffed by the artist or one of his personally trained proteges. They explain their art process to customers to give them a greater appreciation of what they are seeing, holding and buying. The source of all the art is the Medford Craft World Company which takes mahogany stumps destined for the firepit and turns them into pieces of art fit for the most glamorous setting.

Their pieces have found their way into numerous government heads of state and celebrities including Nelson Mandela. When a tourist comes to “Handmade in Barbados” they have stepped into an authentic curio shop where they can obtain genuine items that are locally sourced, designed and manufactured.

A visitor recently remarked, ”’Handmade in Barbados’, ended up being one of my favorite stops. Lots of really cool pieces, handmade by passionate people. Ended up getting a nice cricket clock for my desk as a souvenir of our trip. Check it out. “
