Loved this shop. I bought all my gifts here. Lucy was lovely as were other people in the store. The selection was amazing--better than I found in Oaxaca. I was so happy to find it and can't wait to go back.

Lucy's Cucu Cabaña just reopened in the same location it's been in for twenty-two years after extensive remodeling. We are sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused anyone, but we are always trying to make it better.
