    Casa Del La Alfarero....: Pottery..Watch the Artists at work..or shop...?

    by Greggor58 Updated Jun 13, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is an open air sort of space where you'll actually see artisans working on ceramics in different stages of production...when we visited there was one man working with clay on a potters wheel...another working with the clay prepping the pieces and getting them ready for the kiln...

    This is a LOW pressure shop...I got the impression that they enjoyed having visitors and liked having they're pictures taken...

    Ive done some reading about this establishment and from what I can tell the family run business [ the Santander family ] has been making pottery for many generations and has gone through the ups and downs of Government intervention...at one time the factory which was run by the Santander's was taken over by the Government....long story short... The Santander family was eventually able to make pottery again and you'll find that most of the pottery sold in shops in Trinidad has likely been made here...

    There's a small collection of exotic birds also seen in cages around the shop...the story goes that the Patriarch...Sr.Santander breeds exotic birds for sale around the World by the Cuban Government..you'll see finches,parakeets,and budgerigars..or budgies...not of the dancing kind though I'm sorry to say... : O ]

    What to buy: Pottery vases,masks, etc etc...

    What to pay: Prices were dependent on the size of the item...

    In Trinidad people love there birds and you will find people walking the streets with the bird-cage.

    What to buy: If you like to buy a bird maybe as a present for some people in Cuba you find people selling them in the streets in Trinidad.

    In the morning, in the old part of Trinidad, you will find a couple of streets full of stands where crafts, jewlry and embroidery clothare sold. Many of those stands have the same merchandise so barganing should be a breeze.

    It seems Trinidad can now offer local information about shopping. I visited the site and found many shops. And some of them even have their own web site with more information.

    What to buy: Usually Trinidad is good for Fabrics and many other things. But it seems to be the bargain island of the Caribbean. Met many people who came for shopping from other Caribbean islands during my visit.

    What to pay: low to medium prices, very affordable
