Customer service was great- variety of items made in PR. My favorite is the masks. They can range from 200.00 to 16.00. I bought some native candies, they came in a pack for 4.99.

There was so much to look at here that I had to visit twice. They had tons of glass, ceramic and wooden items plus a nice assortment of jewelry and art all by local artists. Definitely worth your time.
