Beautiful artwork in ceramic, wood, fabric and silver, most of it starting at $100 US (though there are earrings and small sculptures at less). The objects are presented well, not cluttered and the staff is helpful without pressuring.

Friendly but not harassing staff and amazing art pieces - "Day of the Dead", beautiful vases, etc. They were very helpful in properly wrapping and packing the items for transport back to the U.S.
