Lydia is just the sweetest woman! Everything in her shop reflects her and her original talent! Highly recommended especially for gifts of special memory to take home from vacation.

We visited the store many times while in Tamarindo. We commissioned a picture of our dog that she shipped to us in Canada with no problem. It catches our dogs expression so wonderfully. It’s a must place to see as everything is unique.

Lovely shop tucked in a corner by the beach. Unique hand painted clothes, and original artwork. The owner does all the work by hand. Purchased a one of a kind too that I will wear many times at home.
