Since so many people recommended Siete Detalles I stopped by yesterday to take some photos and chat with Alicia. She is a lovely woman who knows her stuff. Like many people, I had to ring the bell to have her come and open the store. I put several photos of her crafts here.

Alicia lives in her apartment which is just around the corner from her store.
If you buy enough, she will give you a great bag to carry your "loot" in..... or at least she used to.

Thanks folks! We ended up visiting Siete Detalles and Yulunga, which is in the shops behind La Bodequita del Medio (Cuban bar on 5th).

We loved Siege Detalles and found some beautiful pewter things to take home. That store is LOADED with beautiful things at reasonable prices and best of all, no harranguing! Yulunga is nice too, although we didn't end up buying anything there.

Thanks again for the recommendations!
