This small artists' cooperative packs a big punch and is THE place to go when you've bought your fill of typical tourist gifts. The handcrafted pottery, art objects, pillows, stationery and you name it are far closer to what you'd find in NY at MoMA...More

Lovely items, many made from recycled items. Reasonably priced and better quality than the mass-produced goods at the big market.

I may be spoiled, but market shopping isn't my thing. I read about Piscolabis before I went and made the effort to locate it. It wasn't too far from the main tourist street of Obispo. I was so happy to see beautiful hand crafted items...More

This was a nice place to stop for coffee, light breaky while walking Havana Vieja. It was nice to find local artists and artisans work in the shop.

This is the type of shop that old Havana needs more of. Apparently owned by an architect and a fashion designer that have really great taste - they carry nice jewellery, pillows, ceramics, glass, some clothing and art. They even serve coffee!

I purchased a beautiful modern interpretation of a Guayabera shirt. I also bought an antique bottle with an antique spoon bent into a candle holder (picture below).
