I visited the store for the Relaxing Watercolor Workshop and I loved it. They're very surrogate of very pretty merchandise and the best part of it is they support local artists. The attention of the girls was excellent. I'll be back soon enough.

I visited the Local Story a while back after purchasing a couple of things online and wanted to have the experience of looking at things closer. I was totally in awe! All the stuff you will find is unique and made locally.
The store also hosts art workshops and I can say that I am addicted. I’ve taken most of them and I am really satisfied with the outcome.

The vibe is awesome, the staff is welcoming and really cool. Stop by, you won’t regret it!!

Lovely store with unique gifts all handcrafted by locals. Also they provide different types of workshops given by the same local artist. If you are around on a weekend don’t miss it!! I went to a watercolor workshop by Ryanne of The Giving Letters and it was very fun. Will be coming back! M.Cruz

Local Story is a must-visit fun shop featuring lots of local designers and artisans. They have an eclectic selection of jewelry, art and accessories. This is my go-to place for awesome gifts. I always find something I love!

If you’re around on a weekend you may even be able to catch one of their workshops in store. Today I did a watercolor workshop and it was awesome! I will definitely be back for more:) Super fun way to chill on a Saturday afternoon.

This is a beautiful little shop with all local Puerto Rican items. Especially love the jewelry. So many things to choose from and many different styles. Super close to the town square which is a great place to walk around and make an afternoon of it!

Great local store with a fusion of Puerto Rican folklore in hand crafts while at the same time maintaining a nice selection of artsy knickknacks that give character to any home, no matter where.
