“The best gift shop in all of Granada”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

Artisans from thoughout Nicaragua sell in this very cool shop.. The items are very inexpensive, but also very unique. The staff are very knowedgeable and many times are doing their craft making in the shop. The items range from pottery to jewelry to really unique bags made out of 45rpm records. This is the place to go for some fun items at terrific prices.

Nice shop not that far away from the the Central Park. They had a lot of different things such clothes and jewelry. All in a bit different design what you normally will see in Nicaragua. Good service in the shop.

“Friendly and helpful”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

I loved the shop and bought a few items of jewelry and clothing, which were lovely and unique. While shopping, I learned that they shipped packages. Their rates were slightly higher than the post office, but they were open on the weekends and until 9:00 pm on most nights. A few days later we brought in some items to be shipped home, as we were traveling on for another week. The shop packed up the items for us, so we didn't have to find a box and packing materials. Once we arrived home, we waited a few weeks before emailing Cesar about the package, which had not arrived. He informed me that the cacao we had purchased had been confiscated by the post master, and he had attempted to contact us the day after we were there (his emails had gone to my spam folder). He didn't want to mail the box without the cacao before checking with me. He promptly shipped the remaining items, including some pottery. It arrived in Florida about 10 days later in perfect condition. Cesar was genuinely helpful and was very active in making sure that I received my package.
