Winter came – and we all blinked! It was gone in a flash. We’re well into our usual warm sunny spring weather. Tough when you’re living in paradise, but somebody’s got to do it. Now is a great time to stroll down “Rodeo Drive” and do some serious shopping. By far the most unique shopping area in Rocky Point with its fabulous selection of interesting and unusual items to enhance either your home or your wardrobe. Definitely not the run of the mill things you find other places.
On the far eastern end of the drive on the south side of the street you’ll find Alberto, Marcelino and Elsa. As with many of the shops the exterior looks like so many of the others however, once inside you’ll find some darling little girls sun dresses that Elsa has embroidered. Also, Marcelino hand carves beautiful jewelry boxes that come in an array of colors as well as in a natural wood design. Want it customized? No problemo! He can carve someone’s name into the design or perhaps you’ll just want him to put Puerto Peñasco, Mexico as a momento of your trip. Interesting enough they have a rich fresh lemon fragrance. He also makes wooden toys. Also in the same shop we have Alberto who paints tiles that can be used as wall decorations and some have been fashioned into table tops as well. The entire family relocated from Toluca, a town 40 minutes outside of Mexico City, some 20 years ago. Not a surprise as that is an area known for their crafts and hand work.
At the western end of the Drive come and see us at Su Casa. We scourer Mexico to find unique, handcrafted items. Then, just across the street, grab a bite at Mariachi’s and Tequila – the food is second to none – or enjoy a cool margarita in a relaxing atmosphere.
