An independent family business with over 35 years of experience

Founded in 1985, TOP-SHOP is one of the longest existing businesses in The Gambian tourism industry. To prevent any upcoming confusion, we have nothing to do with the famous British TOP SHOP! We are a family business that started off as a leather work-shop, and quickly transformed into a fashion manufacturer. We later began to add various arts, crafts, jewelry, printed T-shirts and more – always providing you with the best choice and value for your holiday shopping.

We look forward to welcoming you in The Gambia!

About Us

Enjoy a hassle-free shopping experience

The majority of our employees have been part of TOP-SHOP for at least 10 years, some even since the early beginnings. This does not only refer to our sales team, but also to our production teams who work behind the scenes: To always create new and unique souvenirs, we have our own workshops for tailoring, recycling art, T-shirt printing, jewellery making, and food processing.

We are very proud of our more than three decades long history. Over the years, we have built and maintained long-lasting relationships with our suppliers – local manufacturers as well as travelling salesmen and women – who rely on us as a regular customer, buying for fair prices. This enables us to present you with African arts and crafts from the whole West-African region, as well as selected items from other parts of the world. Our prices are reasonable and fixed, meaning you can save your energy not having to barter. If you like peaceful shopping or just browsing around in a quiet and hassle-free atmosphere, you will certainly enjoy a visit in TOP-SHOP.
