Green Turtle Cay’s Newest Treasure

If there were an award for busiest business person on Green Turtle Cay, Lisa Farrington would be a leading contender. Granddaughter of model shipbuilder Vertrum Lowe, and great-granddaughter of Albert Lowe (for whom the local museum is named), Lisa is a one-woman Chamber of Commerce.

Lisa Farrington with son Carter, an entrepreneur in his own right.

She and her family own and run Harvey’s Island Grill and Cruisin’ Carts golf cart rentals. And earlier this year, with the help of younger sister, Heather Sawyer, Lisa launched The Treasure Chest, a quaint, colourful gift shop.Green Turtle Cay's Newest Treasure

It’s wonderful to see new life breathed into another of New Plymouth’s traditional island cottages. The Treasure Chest’s cheerful yellow exterior invites you into a cool blue interior with nautical wood touches.

Lisa and Heather carry a surprisingly diverse selection of gifts, souvenirs and home décor items, including colourful Abaco Ceramics creations hand-made by local artisan Karen McIntosh. They stock resort wear, jewelry, sandals, beach bags and towels, books, toys and pretty much everything you’d need for a beach vacation.
