Once inside; make sure you got a bit of time to spare, because it won't be easy to leave! "All You Need Is Love" is a very cool clothing store with both used and new items, local products to wear and to eat. This is where you find the little things you won't find anywhere else! And every item seems to spread some love.

"All You Need Is Love" is about spreading a message! That we need to live from the inside out and love each other. Without love, life wouldn't make sense", says owner Paloma van der Spek. With her husband Stefan, Paloma spends her days filling all the corners of the store with cool stuff. Local products are high on the list for All You Need Is Love, which has brought them close to many local artists.

"We work together with local artists to sell their handmade products: jewelry, soaps, oils, clothing, photography, art, etc. Also, people bring their 2nd hand clothes/items and we buy it from them. We bring new clothes that we sell at affordable prices. And we rent and sell bicycles, which helps reduce the noise and pollution in the town, we have the only tandem bicycle in Cabarete."

How did you come up with the idea?

"Last year my friend Roxanne Evans came to my house one night to drink tea. We were chilling and started talking about starting a little shop, a place where people could come together. In the end Roxanne had other projects, but I will always remember that everything started while having tea together."

Who does the store cater to?

"The store is 90% for girls, but we carry some cool things for guys too. And of course, it is for the locals as well as for the tourists. Everybody can buy something here. Our prices range from items that are 50 pesos -up to 2,500 pesos, there's something for everyone."
