This shop of many years always has something unusual to offer , some special thing other places do not have. I have a sweater with a huipil yoke I bought here years ago and wear still. AS I say, always something special.

There are two great places in Antigua to find typical ornaments and decorations for the home. This was a fun find. We strolled through and picked up a few items too.

This is one of my favorite places to shop in Antigua. The products are consistently good quality and are very fairly priced. Always a good shopping experience.

Perfect size of shop. 3 rooms filled with a large variety of stuff. Original handicraft and traditional handicraft in a good mix. Extremely smiley staff with good knowledge of all things I asked about.

This store is filled with gift-type articles. I thought it was overpriced and rather sterile. I much prefer N'im Pot off Plaza Central near the arch. N'im Pot has huipiles and weavings and is simply more fun to browse in.

Although pricier than other shops, it is well worth going and splurging. The store is beautifully put together and has great quality items to choose from. As an added bonus they stock items from local designers from all over the region so you know more about where your item was made.

this is one of the few places you can go to purchase fair trade products by local artisan groups. you will pay more, but it was not made by some kid chained to a loom or being paid 2 centavos for each product they make and 0 centavos if there is a mistake. other reviews state that you need to...

I purchased a $350 teak wood butcher block from this store and after five months the wood spontaneously developed many cracks. Also the legs of the butcher block table separated from the frame. Seems like the wood they used was not dried properly and when it starts to dry out it shrinks and cracks. Now the table is almost useless... More

With an enormous collection of high quality crafts and souvenirs, this is my favorite store in town. We go there almost weekly to check out new additions. And our Antigua home is full of lovely purchases including statues, jewelry, dishes, clothes. Don't miss it.

I stayed at a hotel close here and was surprised with the quality and prices. Besides, Nim Po't Centro de Textiles Tradicionales, which is by the famous Arco/arch- this is the best place to buy real products made by quality vendors. Must go to these two places and almost no need to go elsewhere. The mercado or artists market is... More
