Announcement    May 30, 2022. Family, please note that I've gotten communication from the Jamaica Postal Service indicating that they are currently experiencing some delays with deliveries as a result of what they call 'flight irregularities' to the UK and has apologized accordingly.

Kindly allow a little extra for your deliveries my friend.

UPDATE: September 10, 2021: Canada is off again :-( I got word from the Post Office that postal service to Canada from Jamaica has been suspended temporarily again peeps. I'm truly sorry for the inconvenience. We still have the option of Expedited Service (3-5 days) via DHL though. If interested, kindly let me know. Thanks.

-----------
UPDATE: May 18, 2021: I got word that the postal service has re-opened up to Canada again!!! I'm over the moon!

Now my Canadians customers can enjoy authentic Jamaican products once more!

----------
Since the cost of expedited shipping from Jamaica is very expensive, in many cases, more than the value of the item, I typically ship via the standard postal service, albeit there is an approximately 2.5 to 3 weeks postal delivery timeline (usually shorter than the stipulated shipping time on each item, but I prefer to be safe).

However, upon shipping your order, I will include pictures of the package to let you it is off and give you an idea of what to expect.

If you are in a hurry or prefer expedited shipping though (2-3 days), please let me know and I'll advise you of the cost and arrange it for you.

About MyIslandJamaica

Sales 6,008
On Etsy since 2020

Authentic and Traditional Jamaica finds Etsy!

In 2018, I did an amateur video about the market in Montego Bay, capturing what I call, the sights and sounds!

Among other persons, I interviewed a roots lady, called Bones, and the rest is history.
The video has amassed close to 200,000 views, and counting.

You can watch the video here as well: https://youtu.be/7wDLZNE2hDM?sub_confirmation=1

And the majority of the comments, you'll notice, outside of commending Bones on her knowledge and pleasant smile, were asking about how to get these authentic Jamaican herbal products!

And so the sparked an idea... and this Etsy store was created, belatedly, in February 2020, as the product arm of my website, my-island-jamaica.com.

And yes, bones is now not only a friend, but a partner with me in this venture!

If you are looking for authentic and traditional Jamaican items, this is your one stop shop! And if it is not listed, just send me a message, we'll source it for you!

Happy shopping!! I look forward to meeting you!

IMPORTANT NOTE:
Since the cost of expedited shipping from Jamaica is very expensive, in many cases, more than the value of the item, I typically ship via the standard postal service, albeit there is an approximately 2-3 weeks postal delivery timeline (usually much earlier than the time I state in the shipping for each item)

However, upon shipping your order, I will include pictures of the package to let you it is off and give you an idea of what to expect.

If you insist or prefer expedited shipping though, please let me know.
