If you have an extra day, a nice, peaceful place on level ground. Bought an hand painted, glazed bowl, reasonably priced, and had a great lunch at the interior restaurant. Lots of super high priced shops, nice things.

A large number of unique galleries, antiques, just super interesting art -- sculpture, jewelry, paintings, etc. I did not eat at the restaurants but the menus looked very good.

It was Thursday when we visited and the artists were supposed to be present but we only saw two of them there. It was mostly modern art and extremely expensive. Not whta we were looking for but worth the visit. had a nice drink and snack in the cafe and then went off to explore the wonderful Guadalupe neighborhood.

My friends and i enjoyed roaming through the art spaces and huge shops stuffed with everything from the most modern canvases and crafts to salvaged colonial and church fixtures. Save some time for the cafe's corn cake and a caffeine boost.

I went there looking for local arts and crafts galleries but to my surprise it was a lot of modern and contemporary art galleries located in a very nicely adapted old yarn factory and there is also a remarkable antiques shop.
