Avenida Revolucion Tips (6)

Too Many To Name: Curio Shops Galore!

Curio Shops are filled with a fascinating mix of old and new inventory. Walking through any of these shops tells a history of the tastes held by visitors for at least fifty years.

Leather goods, malachite chess games and silver jewlery are mainstays in popularity and price. String controlled puppets were very popular in the 1960's and can still be purchased today. One of the newer items I noticed--and was not allowed to take a photo of--was a framed copy of one of Freida's self-portraits sitting near old photos of a few Mexican heros, all for sale and all prices subject to agreement through the bargaining process.

What to buy What to buy depends on what you want. Besides those items mentioned above, there are blankets of various colors and qualities, lace/linen table cloths, beaded head caps with a 1920's Flapper fringe around the back, piggy banks in the shape of a skull, Tweetie Bird and other recognizable characters, Mexican style dresses, and so much more.

Most stores carry the same basic inventory and part of the fun of buying in Curio shops in Tijuana is the "comparative-price shopping."

What to pay Spend only what you think the item is worth.

Avenida Revolucion: Lots of Souvenir Shops

avenida de revolucion is just one big street of assorted souvenir shops, bars and restaurants, every other stall in this very busy and bustling street is filled with these souvenir shops and these shops are filled with souvenir items of every kind and color. Name it and they have it like assorted mexican local crafts, rugs, carpets, mexican hats, clay pots, statues, t-shirts, ref magnets, assorted glasses, shot glasses, mexican plants, succulents and a way way lot more. this area is a virtual tourist trap if you are not good at haggling as you might pay more than the similar items in the United States so one word of caution, try to haggle ok since they will be willing to lower the price. prices here are not posted so you must haggle and if the price is so much then go away and move to other stalls!

What to buy whatever you desire like trinkets, blankets, hats, t-shirts, tequila, shot glasses and a way mot more but again HAGGLING is a MUST!

What to pay depends on your Haggling Skills!

Avenida Revolucion: Tacky souveniers

Make everyone happy... or at least wonder, "Why did he/she bring me home this junk?" Oodles of tacky souveniers abound on and around Avenida Revolucion.

What to buy Junk, junk and more junk.

What to pay Find what you want and start your bidding. Best way to haggle is to start at about 25% of the price you were given and work your way up. Also, don't buy at the first place you go, just about every shop carries the same stuff and you're sure to find it cheaper somewhere else or at least find out what the going rate is.

You'll find stores of all kinds in TJ. From leather to souvenirs to American designer outlets, there will be plenty of choices. You can also buy fresh fruits and flowers, but you won't be able to take them back across the border.
