Loved this unique shop in Santa Cruz. Even better was the friendly and helpful shop owner who took the time to share all sorts of Sevilla's gems with us. Stop by for fun souvenirs and great tips from the nicest man in Spain!

In a city full of tourist shops, this little shop offers genuine, interesting, tasteful souvenirs. Well worth seeking out. Opening hours are unusual - it opens at noon when a lot of shops are closing. Very friendly, English-speaking manager.
