Awesome Mexican souvenirs & home decor items- I found lots of things to take home. It's pricier than items you can find from street vendors, but excellent quality and selection, making it well worth checking out.

El Estudio! is super cute, it is jam-packed with colourful funky little things. I wouldn't say it's particularly 'artisan', a lot of the stuff is quite commercial and generic, but some stuff is very cute and unique. I loved their tiled mirrors and embroidered pillows!...More
