Best buys are woodcarvings, pearls, shell craft, woven products, pottery, and pandanus hats and baskets made out of coconut fibre. Coins and stamps are considered to be valuable collectors' items. Another popular buy is a brightly coloured, all-purpose wrap-around cloth garment worn by both men and women (a Pareu); it's ideal for casual wear in the hot climate. Island Craft (www.islandcraft.com) has a retail outlet in Avarua where hand-carved items can be purchased. The art of carving may be observed in Punanganui Market Place. There is also a wide range of duty-free items.
