We found some of the specific (inexpensive) souvenirs we were looking for here. There were separate rooms for each type of craft. The shop next door (Casa de las Artesanias) is a cooperative, and had similar items and similar small rooms with different types of crafts. We assumed this was a cooperative as well but did not ask. Some of the items were less expensive here but that was not as important as finding exactly what we wanted. The staff was very helpful searching for items that we ask about.

On souvenir shopping day I ended up buying everything at the Mercado Artesanias, and this shop. I was impressed with the selection and quality of everything in the store. If you don't have time to sort through 20 different stalls in the artisan market, don't like haggling, or want to make sure you are getting quality pieces just come straight here. The prices seemed more than fair based on other shops I visited, and everyone was very helpful.

The barro negro pieces were beautiful, and I wish I could have bought half of what I saw. Unfortunately, I do not think the airline would have let me check several 4 foot tall vases. So sad. That being said, they will crate and ship your items back to US but the shipping may cost more than your purchase! I ended up buying a beautiful (smaller) vase as a wedding gift for friends, and a small statue of Mary for myself.
