Some very nice art pieces to browse through here. We ended up buying a very decorative and colorful mirror that we love. The shop owner is friendly and unassuming, prices are reasonable and there is a nice selection. Definitely a must stop.

Lucy's Cucu Cabaña just reopened in the same location it's been in for twenty-two years after extensive remodeling. We are sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused anyone, but we are always trying to make it better.
