Overview

Unique, hand picked gifts and art. Supporting many local Costa Rican artists and artisans. From fine art canvases, wood carvings and fine silver jewelry to folk art and hand-made soaps; you'll find a great selection of Costa Rican products (as well as few from other Central American artists). Authentic Boruca Indian masks from Costa Rica and Chorotega Indian Pottery. Beautiful leather bags and local jewelry.

The products at so many places seemed not so great ... but not here. Fewer items, displayed nicely, good quality. So nice, that we went back for a second look, lol.

This was an awesome little art store. I regret not getting more when I was there. A friend got a picture with one of the local artists. Fingers crossed one day she will create an online store.
