About
Copperstone is the only souvenir store you need to visit when you are on the island!We are a mother and daughter team, who try to bring you something different than the average souvenir. Home to Curacao's official cat Skadey too! Skadey is the Prime Minister's favorite- he loves cats. Ask for Melissa - the artist and creator of Skadey, and Hema the one behind the most creative souvenirs you will find. Family owned, each corner is filled with love, care and amazing prices. Wholesalers to a great deal of stores, we've got the best prices and variety! Exclusive retailers of Dhan Arts Paintings and Souvenirs. Located in Punda on the same street as the Synagogue, look for two huge cats painted by Melissa. Skadey and Ringo - you can even pose for selfies with them! Hope to see you soon!

Super.....
Jun 2021
This shop is so amazing..... The service is so great. Even though we do not like the same football team, the owner is an amazing gently friendly woman who you can ask anything about her shop. We sometimes tease each other, she likes jokes. But also the statutes she sales are wonderful. You can order your own if you like. Her paintings are great. If you go to Curacao it is a must to visit this shop. You will always find something.

Very nice gift shop, for cat ladies a must-see place :-)
Jul 2021 • Couples
During our stay at Curaçao, we were just walking in the city, visiting some of local souvenir and gift shop when suddenly I saw a cute cat statue in front of this store that totally got my attention. The shop is very nice, you can choose from "classic" souvenirs and gifts from Curaçao but also you can see and buy some of the owner's art products, such as beautiful paintings, mugs, pendants or statues of the cat Skadey with beautiful paintings on it. I don't usually invest too much money into home decorations and art but I could not help myself and had to return to this store for my own Skadey. For cat ladies it is a definitely a must to visit this beautiful shop! :-)

This store is a very wonderful little place for people who are in love with cats! It has many handmade stuff, colorful and lots of love. The owner is very friendly and you can order your stuff and she will do it just for you. It’s an excellent service. The store also has different things, mostly typically touristic things from Curacao. The prices are fair. You can park your car directly in front of the shop. The shop is in the middle of the city in some of the side streets. It’s easy to find. You will never forget your stay. I will promise you! I’m happy to meet this Crazycatlady, because I’m a Crazycatlady too.

Family Owned and Great Souvenirs
Jul 2021
We ran into this store because we were looking for locks to put on the hearts(they had them, btw!). We met the mother and daughter who were so dushi! My nieces just talked them up. They found so many cute souvenirs including some artwork done by the daughter herself! Check it out @dhanarts

To the family owned business… thank you for being so kind and talking to us like we were every day customers! We had a wonderful visit and we hope to see y’all again.

Most unique store in the downtown area
Jun 2021
Amazing store. Unique as it has items that are in-house created by the family, and they are very cool! The cats of Curacao are so interesting, and Melissa and her family have done a wonderful job making relevant and unique items around this idea. Many good schwag stores on the island, but by far our favorite! Stop by and check them out.

This is a GREAT and cute little shop. Customer service is amazing! I got 2 custom skadey cats and one normal one that she already had done and I love them! They are so cute and I love her art. Probably my favorite shop that I visited while I was on the island!

A true gem of a shop
Mar 2021
What a wonderful surprise to discover this shop! In addition to the quality and distinctiveness of the items in the store, it was a pleasure to strike up a conversation with Melissa--the shopkeeper and artist--as well as her mother Hema who's also there. Their warmth enabled us to relax and enjoy the experience in a way that's completely different from a generic tourist souvenir shop.

And even if you're not a "cat person" yourself, you can appreciate the artistry of what Melissa has done with those pieces and maybe be inspired to get one for a cat lover in your life!

Original souvenir
Aug 2020 • Family
I follow Melissa on Instagram and as a catmom I had to buy a Skadey during our vacation on Curaçao! Had a lovely chat with Melissa. I'm definitely not an influencer, but she knew who I was, a lovely feeling. Will definitely buy an other Skadey next year, maybe a customized :-)
So if you are on Curaçao and want an original souvenir go visit Copperstone and buy yourself (and/or your catsitter) a Skadey!
