Lucy and her husband Gil have been at the same location for many years. On Basilio Badillo, next to the Memo's pancake house, they have some really great textiles, Katrina's and Frida Kahlo type earrings. Gil's famous for his books of anecdotes and short stories about Mexico.

We purchased 2 beautiful masks from this incredible store. We learned about their Guerrero origin and were given additional information to take home. We can't wait to display them as a constant reminder of our awesome trip. We will def be back! Go go go!

This is a wonderful store. Lots of beautiful quality art objects with a story of authenticity behind each. Lucy was full of tips and suggestions for other shopping as well. Will definitely make her beautiful shop a destination on our next visit to Mexico.

This place has so many great objects d'art I can't decide what to take home. Lucy and Gil have collected an incredible array of fascinating hand-made Mexican crafts and art. With reasonable prices and wonderful eye-candy they have a real gold mine.

This is the best shop to find true native art, at a reasonable price. The shop may be small, but it's huge in the outstanding native artwork from various places in Mexico. The richly colored (with plant dyes) wool rugs to the brightly exquisitely painted wooden animal figurines, everything is eye candy to the extreme. I always check out this... More
