    Craft shops on Alcala: Memories at Christmas-time

    by TheWanderingCamel Written Sep 27, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What to buy: I collect Nativity scenes, and the ones from South and Central America appeal to me particularly. I found my Mexican one in Oaxaca. The choice was huge, themed in every colour imaginable, but I liked this little rustic one - its natural colours and naive charm were more to my taste than the rich reds, purlpes, emerald greens, etc of others I saw.

    I also found Christmas tree balls - not of glass but woven grass, another Oaxacan craft.

    What to pay: The Nativities are priced according to how many pieces make up the scene - some have an enormous number of characters. There's one for every budget.

    My straw balls were less than $1 each.
