Tesoros is one of my most beloved shops in Austin. When in the Soco/South Congress area you will definitely want to check them out. The area is great and you can see a lot of wall art and street art in the area. Tesoros has a beautiful wall mural of The Virgin Mary/Our Lady of Guadalupe that is truly inspiring!... More

Love, love, love this store. They have great items from all over at all prices. I bought myself some things and some early holiday gifts. Staff is super helpful and friendly. They greet every person who walks in. Very cool, interesting things - definitely worth checking out. They are located int he SoCo area.

Very nice store -- Unlike Un.Objects, you can actually find some affordable gifts for yourself / and for others. Not all bargains though --- they are selling a Mousepad for $20 LOL. In the back of the store, there are some really cool little items that don't cost that much.

Good high end Mexican gifts. Art, holiday items. Some clothing. But the prices are unbelievably high. Nice place to look but go elsewhere to buy. There are plenty other shops, not as pretty but much more affordable. Fun to stroll around S. Congress. All shops are expensive but this one beats them all.

A friend and I were shopping on South Congress and stopped into Tesoros. 30 minutes later, we were still there shopping! So many fun things and great gift ideas. Most of the merchandise is imported from craftmen around the world. Highly recommend if you like handmade items!

I go to Austin once a year and always go to Tesoro's twice. There is so much to see that it requires two visits. This is a great place to buy unique gifts for your friends and family. The prices are very reasonable and the staff is very friendly.

We visited Tesoros on our trip down Congress. It's on the corner, next to that awesome taco spot. It has the most unique, one of a kind, handmade, exquisite and reasonably priced selection I've had the pleasure to shop. Every part of the globe is recognized. Authentic, and rare, I could have bought a piece from every continent. It is... More

It's difficult to bring together lots of different cultural artifacts and make sense of these in a shop. From the window it seems as though the shop is going to sell Mexican crafts, but inside there are things from Japan, Peru and others too. Lots of lovely - very good quality - things.

I have been to this store so many times. I have purchased many things, but the last experience I had. . . well, never again!
