The state of Oaxaca, which is almost as far down in Mexico as you can go -- getting near Central America -- is known for having some of the best artisans in the whole country. That includes weavers, carvers, potters, silversmiths, jewelers.
Below was a street scene of some handcrafted baskets that were in the park at the ocean resort area of Huatulco. My wife has bought a number of items down there and they are all excellent quality. There is something of interest for just about everyone in this part of Mexico.
