What a great place - filled with local artisan's products. My kids and I were able to find great things for our significant others that were actually really nice - instead of the tacky stuff that you generally find in souvenir shops.

We lived close by and never entered the business. It was a pleasant surprise to see the great variety of articles made by Puerto Rican hands. Real local crafts. It is impossible to leave without anything.

They have a great collection of gifts, and the wide variety of sauces are consistently a hit. Downtown Palmer is undergoing growing pains since it is the... More

The ladies in this place were friendly and informative. When buying, I recommend buying items made buy local artisans. They are unique and a part of the local island culture. Thank you Nita and staff, my daughter's loved your hospitality and welcoming attitude.
