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. “

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Sep 19, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements.

Tiger quadruplets in Berlin zoo treated for knee problems

Sep 19, 2020

BERLIN — A Berlin zoo says four young Sumatran tigers are undergoing treatment for knee problems. The quadruplets were born in the summer of 2018 and as they started to develop, zookeepers noticed abnormalities in the way the cubs ran, the Tierpark Berlin said Wednesday. CT scans revealed all four tigers had knee misalignments that were causing cartilage damage. That damage is now being treated, and an expert team is to sit down in the new year to discuss long-term strategies to help the tigers. “We don't want to just rely on our own judgement. We will sit down with...

Streep, Miranda and Stone are named as Met Gala co-0chairs

Sep 19, 2020

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...

Try something new with uncommonly delicious (and ugly) fruit

Sep 19, 2020

As I savor one of my just-picked American persimmons (Diospyros virginiana), I'm reminded how this fruit — and a few other delectable fruits — would never sell. Why not? Because they're ugly! Although the persimmons hung from the branches as handsome, plump, orange orbs up to a few weeks ago, by now they have shriveled and their skins are darkening to brown and black. The texture and flavor have likewise changed. They once were like dried apricots that have been plumped up in water and then dipped in honey with a dash of spice. Now, they've become mushier, with some...

Millennial Money: Secrets of a Black Friday Shopper

Sep 19, 2020

My husband and I have a Thanksgiving routine. Before the family arrives or the turkey is carved, we gather in the living room. As Christmas music plays in the background, he turns on his laptop, and I mine. That's when the deal hunt begins. Some people cringe at the thought of shopping on Thanksgiving or Black Friday, but I revel in it. Maybe it's because I love a good bargain, or because I write about how to save money.
