I started collecting the stuffed animals from Chiapas that are made from the scraps of hand woven woolen skirts and shawls. Can´t stop. Check out the shops on calle 62 going north from the main square for two blocks.
You´ll find other interesting things in these shops as well…in fact on any given day they may not have many interesting stuffed toys but they always have nice embroidered blouses and handbags. There are nice beaded change purses and jewelry as well. If you have a hippy gene or two left in your body you might even find some funky trousers or hats. Best of all the shops end by the time you get to Marlin Azul and you can have lunch there if the new TV doesn´t annoy you too much.
