We were at a little shop in Coral Bay that had a very wonderful and unusual table and chair set - it was, of course, not for sale! Both the table and chair were designed like flowers in primary colors - and the chairs were actually comfortable.

The owner told me I could get it at a warehouse behind the hospital in STT. On the way back to the airport, we looked behind the hospital and saw no warehouse. Any one have an idea about where she meant?

It's inside Fortress Self-Storage.

Trade is right; sounds like they meant Island Empire (776-7529). Across the road from the main part of Fortress; is part of an industrial-looking strip of a few business. It is apparently part of Fortress Storage's holdings but it doesn't look like the main part of Fortress.

To get there, take the road behind the hospital (on the ER entrance side of the hospital) and turn on the road between the Paragon Building and the VI Medical Foundation. The road then turns 90 degrees to the left; Island Empire is on the left after you make that turn.

The road that goes to Fortress Storage is roughly U shaped, coming back to the "behind hospital road" just past the VI Daily News. So,alternatively you could turn of the "behind hospital road" past the Daily news. Going that direction, the road takes a 90 degree turn to the right and Island Empire is on the right.

It's between Dr. Cheetam's office and SRI Medical Supplies.

I bought a couple of tiny bistro tables and chairs there recently. Was pleased.

You might want to go ahead and contact them, even if you are not on island. You may have noticed stock here moves quickly for some things, and they may never get that particular set again. I have been very disappointed more than once! They would probably hold it for you until April, if you go ahead and pay. I don't know that, just an idea.

They do have a nice selection of items, caribfreak. Also, the owners are very nice and helpful; they'd happily order something to suit you if it is not in stock.
