"Shlockies" refers to the glitzy, cheesy, made-in-China, touristy, non-island stuff that many gringos seem to have to own and experience.
Belize is unique. I like to think that's why folks come here; to live a small portion of a life that is not part of their existence the rest of the year.

My feeling has always been, "If you want Miami, stay in Miami"
BTW, singular of "shlockies"=shlock
