New Year, New Beginnings and Rodeo Drive is keeping pace right there with it. The street has come a long way over the years. From a “Dirt Mall” filled with shanties to today’s wonderful variety of charming shops, many housing amazing artisans making unique merchandise right before your eyes.
On the far west end toward the convention center is a family working on their metal art. From a nine foot giraffe to a tiny flower, their talent is evident in everything they produce. As you come further down the drive you’ll see shell art, also a family business. They gather their own shells, clean them and create wind chimes, mirrors, napkin holders and unique statues. This is done by 5 generations of family members.
Su Casa has unusual articles gleaned from all over Southern Mexico and Fabiola’s Plaza has a nice selection of cotton resort clothing. On the far East end of the Drive you’ll find Eddie Wharez who does home furnishings and Consuelo’s shop with Mexican Pewter and pottery.
Tired out from all that shopping? Well, Mariachi’s and Tequila has the best margaritas in town and its food selection has something for everyone.
Shopping Rodeo Drive is always a treat. You can find unique, handcrafted items all up and down the street. Great prices, outstanding selection, the best prices in town and friendly vendors. What more could you ask for.
