I've visited Puerto Rico, staying in Old San Juan, 3 times and come here each time. It's not the only place to get souvenirs that are actually made on the island, but it is one of the best. The items ranged from T-shirts to rum...More

There was so much to look at here that I had to visit twice. They had tons of glass, ceramic and wooden items plus a nice assortment of jewelry and art all by local artists. Definitely worth your time.

A lovely shop with many artists represented. The staff is helpful, and the store isn't crowded with items, though it is a bit heavy on the Three Kings art (it may be a Puerto Rican thing that's difficult to avoid). You will find paintings, framed...More

Our favorite souvenirs from Puerto Rico came from this shop; they offer authentic, handmade, original items not found elsewhere. Touristy shops are abundant, but true local, authentic items are hard to come-by in Old San Juan, and this shop has them. Prices are reasonable and...More

Art, jewelry, coffee, packaged cookies, and alcohol-this store has so much and it is beautifully presented. It would be easy to find souvenirs for gifts or to remember Puerto Rico. My teens love art and really enjoyed spending time in this store.
