I found this place through Tripadvisor and I was very happy I did. They have one of a kind high quality products here, from pillows and throws to wooden spoons and glassware. You can browse the store without having any sales people all over you. They have very good service and prices are very in line with the quality.
My Air Bnb hostess immediately recommended this amazing artist coop because I was looking specifically for quality hand crafted wood utensils and kitchen accessories for Christmas gifts. Be advised that the shop was closed when I visited around 2PM on Christmas Eve day and again on Christmas Day (which is to be expected). But the day after Christmas, I finally... 更多
Casa de los Gigantes is a well laid out store with better made goods from Guatemala. The pricing is very competitive and the quality better than most shops. I wish I had gone here first.

Do you care about fair trade? About authenticity? About great selection and customer service? Look no farther than Casa de Los Gigantes. Siggy's team has put together an amazing collection of lovely, high quality handicrafts - I use the word Collection because this could be a museum, for all it's beauty. We shopped around and always came back to Los... 更多
We ran into this place while walking around Antigua. The place was probably a local house some years ago and it has been transformed in a store/gallery. You will find every kind of local handcrafts of every type including wooden artifacts, colorful fabric pieces, toys etc. Compared to other handcrafts stores closer to the central area, prices were a lot... 更多
