For a unique shopping experience while in Barbados, spend some time at the boutiques of Chattel Village. This is a collection of ten retailers inside very colorful chattel houses. These portable homes were used by Barbadian plantation workers after slavery was abolished in the early 19th century. You will find an array of apparel and souvenirs plus a hair salon, café and cigar store. They are located north of Bridgetown on Highway 1 in Holetown.
