Ranked #15 of 109 Shopping in Seville

Attraction details
Owner description: Original little shop located at the room where famous cigarre maker Carmen met her lovers. We sell little antiquities, vintage articles,books, posters, handcrafted souvernirs around Carmen in particular, and Seville in general. Probably, the best, imaginative and original suggestion for a shoping day in the heart of the city, surrounded of wonderful tapas bar clasiques in Seville.

We attempted to visit three times whilst in Seville at appropriate "normal" opening times based on previous trip advisor reviews. Shutters open doors locked on 2 occasions shutters shut on 3rd. No information as to opening. Window shopped - it looked interesting but short of breaking and entering couldn't get in. No info on door etc as to opening but a nice trip advisor sticker. Its a bit out of the way so not impressed with lack of information. Owner suggest you provide information for your customers.

This little shop is full of creative finds. If you're looking for a one of a kind gift, Manolo is the man to visit. He has an excellent selection of books, hand made items, and vintage pieces. As another reviewer mentioned, the orange soap smells incredible. I'm not much of a shopper, but I visited this store twice during my 4 day trip. Manolo is very friendly. He knows so much about Sevilla and can offer great suggestions. He gave me some excellent ideas for wine and flamenco. This store is really worth a visit!

Unique selection and a charming owner who was very happy to give us some insider tips on things to do and see in Seville. I went back twice to buy more of the orange soap he carries. It smells so beautiful and evokes such strong memories of Seville, I was afraid I didn't have enough!

In a city full of tourist shops, this little shop offers genuine, interesting, tasteful souvenirs. Well worth seeking out. Opening hours are unusual - it opens at noon when a lot of shops are closing. Very friendly, English-speaking manager.

An interesting find that has items ranging from cute handmade one-of-a kind t-shirts, old books, ceramics to posters dating back to 1920s. The store has a lot character and more importantly, Manolo, the owner, is a wealth of knowledge and one of the kindest people of Seville. He went to the extend of dropping our purchased items to the hotel since he knew we were going in the opposite direction. Make sure to ask him for recommendations for where to eat and what to see from a local's perspective. Thanks Manolo!
