SPECIAL

This complex is a visual
delight — a woodsy area of
lush trees and foliage, serene
and multi-leveled, where win-
ding walkways and open
courtyards lead to shops and
boutiques housed in struc-
tures made of local stone and
coral.
It was designed and built by
architect Glen Speer, who has
lived on St. John since 1969
and was inspired by the Euro-
pean plantations built on St.
John in the 1700s. All the
buildings of Mongoose Junc-
tion are made of stone quar-
ried on the site, and the doors
and windows are mahogany.
The shops here are varied
and low-key. Unlike the much
more bustling shopping area
in St. Thomas, this one is
quietly serene. Visitors can
browse at leisure for hours,
without any pressure to buy.
The shops include the
Donald Schnell Studio,
featuring handmade pottery,
sculpture and blown glass; R
and I Patton Goldsmithing,
wiht a large selection of
island-designed jewelry; and
Caravan Gallery, which
features ethnic jewelry and
crafts from around the world.
These include African and
Indonesian masks, ornamen-
tal boxes from India — and
also delicate glass bottles
from Israel.
"Two Israelis walked in one
day and asked, 'Are you in-
terested in hand-blown glass

from Israel?' " relates Rhada
Speer, who owns Caravan
Gallery together with her
husband, Glen Speer, the ar-
chitect who also designed
Mongoose Junction.
Rhada Speer, always in-
terested in new crafts, im-
mediately said she'd like to
see the bottles. It turned out
the two visitors had the glass
in the hold of their sailboat.
"The next day, they came
back with a huge bag, which
was bubble-wrapped. They'd
sailed all the way from Israel
with 200 glass bottles!"
relates Rhada Speer.
After she saw them, she
ended up buying three
quarters of their collection.
"We bought them right then
and there," she says. "We had
a great time getting to know
the Israelis and choosing the
bottles," says Rhada, who is
originally from the Napa
