This amazing store hosts some of the best artesenia that the Oaxaca valley offers and the majority of its income go back to the families providing it. Excellent alibrijes, ceramics, and clothing among other departments.

Huizache has just about everything you can imagine. Huaraches, textiles, jewelry, bedspreads and placemats, and more. If you're looking for a gift or that special piece of clothing, try Huizache. The selection is extensive, the staff helpful and the prices reasonable.

The store sells only authenticated regional crafts, the emphasis on handwoven textiles which are typical for the area. But also "alebrijos", the whimsical wood carved animals in all sizes, pottery and jewelry. Very central, always open. You need a picture i.d. With a credit card...More

I think they do international shipments. They answer you really quickly through their Facebook and Twitter accounts, or you can call them. The phone number is 01 951 501 1282.
