Last trip to Carmel i was so sad to discover that my all time favorite shop was gone! Well the good news is they just moved~ They are now outside of Salinas on Highway 68. Their address is 22748 Portola Drive Salinas, Ca. 93908. It is still the same wonderful shop just about 15 miles from Carmel. **gossip is the owner wanted to spend more time with her 6 year old who goes to school 3 blocks from new location! I don't blame her though do miss the Carmel ease! I did discover they do have a new Its cactus website that was very fun!
This is my all time favorite store in Carmel. If you are trying to find a gift for that difficult to please person, this is your place! Also love the selection of religious icons and art. I spent an entire day shopping in town without finding a single thing I had to have until I found this store. I wish I could have purchased one of everything! Enjoy!!!
I absolutely love this shop. Every time we come to visit family in Monterey, we make sure we allow enough time to visit this delightful shop. You find items you would never find anywhere else. I never leave empty handed. We've had large items mailed to our home in Georgia all without a hitch. Every item purchased is beautifully wrapped in brightly colored tissue paper with raffia. I just can't say enough positive things about this little jewel in Carmel.
What an outstanding experience! Walking into this unique and colorful store is like visiting the countries that are represented. Those working in the store offer a huge "welcome" each time a customer walks in and it is always a pleasure to take a moment to chat. The art that is showcased is beautiful and often, affordable even in a location like Carmel. Don't miss the chance to visit!
I love this store! The inventory and the staff are extrodinary. I used to save up my vacation time just so I could visit this store. Their inventory has never disappointment me, and I usually go broke spending there!
What isn't there to like!!! Casey the owner has a great passion for what she does. She has fabulous stories to share of all the places she travels for her folk art, all the artists and communities she supports and always a "new" find to tell you about. It's a vibrant store, very unique for Carmel and very much worth a visit to say hi and ask about her most recent trip.
This store has articles from the best Mexican artists and artisans, each piece has a personality of its own and the store is a destination in itself! The place is full of irreverent as well as some religious art and is just a fun fun stop to shop and visit.I felt my senses were filled up and I laughed 'til I cried at the "Pug Tree".
