“Pop art in a spaceship!”
Reviewed 26 February 2014

We stayed right across this lovely shop and just looking at it every time we stepped out of the hotel would make you smile.
They have cool shirts and some incredibly handcrafted things that you wouldn't believe! A purse made out of carton, Frida paintings and unique earrings among other stuff. If you need to buy some stuff as souvenirs, this is the place to visit.

“OMG AWESOME STUFF”
Reviewed 3 January 2014

I was on holiday here with my bf recently and I totally wondered into this shop by accident, but was immediately blown away by the cool local art here. Very Frida Kahlo style stuff. I bought a t-shirt and a painting and a couple of little things for friends back home. I got talking to the resident artist there who painted most of the awesome stuff in the shop. She's super cool and really nice and even offered to paint my own personal painting! Unfortunately, I didn't have the time to stay, but will come back on my next visit.

Defo worth a vist for some local art and/or gifts for friends back home. DO NOT MISS!!!!
