One of the best when it comes to the Anguilla shopping scene? Limin' Boutique in the island's west end.
Limin' is located at Tranquility Beach Anguilla on beautiful Meads Bay. When you are in the neighborhood, be sure to drop in for a "lime" (as we say here in Anguilla)!
Step inside Limin' Boutique and owners Ken and Renee Reinl always greet you so warmly.
They started visiting Anguilla in the 90's, having made dozens and dozens of trips over the decades.
It had always been their dream to re-locate to Anguilla and run a small business.

In mid-2013, they took the plunge, selling everything they owned in Philadelphia! Today they are living their dream, living in Anguilla and running their passionate vision of the perfect "beachy boutique."
We all tend to love "leave the rat race" stories. Sweet as can be, Ken and Renee have hearts of gold. They now live here in Anguilla, which means that no longer count the days until they have to "go back."
Painted white, pretty decor hangs from the ceiling and gentle Caribbean music plays.

Hand Made by Renee!
As we browsed, Renee explained that the concept behind Limin' was to create a shop with a beachy vibe. It's slightly modeled after shops you find up in Nantucket and other beach communities in the northeast. It has a distinctly fresh feel with items similar to that which you may find in coastal towns in the States, and original creations made in Anguilla and in the Caribbean.
Chic Caribbean-Inspired Jewelry
Ken and Renee have spent hours pouring over potential merchandise, looking for just the right items to stock. The boutique specializes in stylish jewelry that's well-made and affordable, Caribbean-ready beachwear and one-of-a-kind Anguilla souvenirs.
Stylish DUNE Bracelets
Our favorite pieces are those that are made here in Anguilla and those inspired by Anguilla's beauty.
Let's take a look...
Jewelry-wise they have a wide selection of stylish options. All have a beachy-chic vibe.
I love the delicate feel of the bracelets above. Hand-crafted with Sailor String in Paris, they are beautiful. The colors of the gems is enchanting!
Perhaps most exciting of all is that Limin' Boutique is the exclusive retailer for "Dune Jewelry." Made with REAL Anguillian sand, these pieces are truly unique...
Collected here in Anguilla, the sand is showcased in earrings, bracelets, necklaces and rings.
To the right is a sterling silver "wave" rings with white Meads Bay sand and lapis stone.
I love the idea of carrying a little piece of Anguilla with you everywhere you go :-)
A terrific souvenir, and so stylish.
These fly off the shelves when they get them in!
I haven't seen this anywhere else!
The necklaces above are some of our new favorites in the DUNE collection. These sand necklaces now come in colors of Turquoise and Lapis. Breathtaking hues of blue!
What would a beachy-shop be without beachwear?
Relaxed Beachy Selections
Limin' has plenty of colorful, easy, breezy tunics. They carry Gretchen Scott Designs and labels out of St. Barths. Perfect for slipping over a bathing suit, they are comfortable and contemporary in style.
Breezy Anguilla Wraps
The wrap above is custom made by Renee and Ken. Do you recognize the design? That is the outline of Anguilla, subtly diffused into the fabric of the breezy wrap. Beautiful!
When it comes to accessories, Limin' is in no short supply of cool beach bags, either.
Anguillian Sail Boats Made Into Bags
They carry interesting "sail bags," made from actual sails of local Anguillian sailing boats. A charming touch? On the back there is space to log all of the places you've drifted into!
Limin' also offers beautiful items for your home. Anguilla tea-towels, DUNE bottle openers and wine stops, and hand painted ornaments! The ornaments are a "must have" for every Anguilla lover. Pristine beach scenes, the iconic Pink West End Cottage, Anguillian goats, and the island's national sport - local sailboat racing are all showcased on these pretty decorations.
Items For The Home
Ken & Renee create some of the most thoughtful and high quality Anguilla souvenirs.
As Ken & Renee get settled at their new Tranquility Beach Anguilla location, they will be expanding their collection of Anguilla souvenirs. Stay tuned for more one-of-a-kind creations by Renee & Ken :-)
