Fodor's Review

This shop promotes Jalisco State's handicrafts, selling burnished clay bowls signed by the artist, blown glass, plates and bowls from Tonalá, and other items at fair prices. That said, Bustamante knockoffs and Huichol pieces in less-than-traditional themes (smiley faces not being one of the Huichol's typical motifs) are indications that quality is slipping. Still, there's a representative sampling of the state's ceramics, blue and red glassware, and barro bruñido: clay pieces finished by burnishing only. It's catercorner from La Plaza de Armas and is open 9 to 9 daily.
