This is the best shop to find true native art, at a reasonable price. The shop may be small, but it's huge in the outstanding native artwork from various places in Mexico. The richly colored (with plant dyes) wool rugs to the brightly exquisitely painted wooden animal figurines, everything is eye candy to the extreme. I always check out this... More

The place was very centrally located and the shop keeper was very accommodating and knowledgeable about the unique gifts and artisan products they were selling. I bought some beautiful handmade tea towels and napkins which I loved and at reasonable prices. My friends and I all bought something because of the unusual items they had...very nice shop..glad I found it.
