    I’m looking for a big wooded carved chest, we bought one at your store years ago when we were stationed there. We bought two & would like to get another one if possible. Thank you.

      Sorry, I don’t actually work for this store. I no longer live on the island, otherwise I would be able to help you get in touch with the store. As far as I know, they are still in business. The contact information I have on them is on this post. Best of luck getting what you need!

        Thank you for getting back to me so fast. We hope to go back to Lajes next year, God willing. Hopefully we can get one then. Thanks
