I went out for a ramble a couple months ago and drifted into the Crafts Alive area - a cluster of shops with vendors selling everything from t-shirts to soursop juice. Most islands and tourist destinations have places like these but, in designing ours, we took a look back at the old chattel houses and then jazzed them up with vibrant colours.

|CROCHET DOLL WEARING RECYCLED PLASTIC BAGS|
The bag below is also made from recycled plastic bags and, these, Kishmet makes herself. Each bag can take her between two and three hours to produce. She sells the bags for about $25 but the dolls range from $10 to $15, depending on the size.

In addition to the bags and the dolls, Kishmet makes several other things from recycled bags including booties and uses can rings to make one-of-a-kind earrings. If you're ever in the area, check Kishmet out!
