While eating at Nogui's Resturant (which is a must!), I noticed a tee-shirt in a a store window that said 'Always Radiate Sunshine'. It was night time, so I wasn't able to see much else in the store, but the next morning I came back to get that t-shirt. But the little store was closed that early in the morning. However, now it was light out and I could actually see inside. The little shop was filled with color and sparkle and hand created, unique items, filled with love. And what caught my eye this time was a mermaid tank top. So once again, I left and came back during business hours. Third time worked, and was worth the wait... Lydia and her shop are absolutley charming. She and her creations are one of a kind. For anyone looking for hand created items, you need to find yourself in this colorful little shop.
Not to mention, Lydia herself is amazingly talented and emmulates pure joy and light. She has a personal touch that is very rare and refreshing... A warm soul, who genuinely loves her craft and the people who are so lucky to leave with any of her creations.
I spent a good hour chatting with my new found "mermaidlady soul sister" and looking around her colorful shop. And finally left with that mermaid tank top and a beaded/glass 'Om Mani Padme Hum' wall hanging. These are both gorgeous pieces of art that will never be duplicated and will always remind me of Lydia, her shop and our warm and spirited time in Costa Rica.
