Due to its fairly small community of residents, shopping is fairly limited in the Falkland Islands and most of the stores are located in Stanley. For a souvenir of your time or as gift to take home, handmade crafts can be found in numerous places in the capital or near tourist attractions in the camp.
Local specialties include jewelry made from semi-precious stones and beautiful pebbles, wooden crafts made from driftwood and ship wrecks, leather goods and, of course, hand-knitted woolen garments, which may come in extremely useful on a blustery Falklands day.
One of the top destinations for souvenir shopping is Harbour View Gift Shop, which specializes in all things penguin related in addition to other great gift ideas, while Studio 52, situated on the Stanley waterfront displays and sells some fantastic photographs, canvases and sculptures depicting the spectacular scenery in the Falkland Islands.
For everyday goods during your stay in Stanley, head over to The West Store Complex, which houses brands familiar to British travelers, in addition to UK establishments Waitrose and clothing store Peacocks.
