...Hand made wooden, leather, precious woods objects. Hand made shoes and sandals. ...Jewellery, made of colourful seeds : necklaces, bracelets, some made of lucky seeds as "ojo de buey" (ox eye seed), for moving away jalousy...other made of precious woods or semiprecious stones. Rings made with old cutlery forks. Many "Che Guevara" souvenirs. Some small, some big, some cheap, some expensive.

Hand knitted cloth, hats, table clothes... You also can find, the ground or in grain exquisite Cuban Coffee. We also found a very interesting numismatic store.
