This store has some of the best folk art and jewelry in the area.
Such fun to browse and buy. The earrings are really outstanding.

A friend suggested I come here as the craftsmanship and textiles were highly sought after. The prices aren't cheap but as I always say, you get what you pay for.
The staff were helpful and patient with my bad Spanish. Sign language goes a long way. I was able to understand where some of the pieces were made and by who.
One lady took me aside to show me the hidden ceremonial instruments and I felt very lucky. Although you can't buy anything, you can be mesmorised by it all.
Wheelchair friendly. Kid friendly.

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.
