This is the place to go for small quantities of reasonably priced burial amber or antique white agate from Africa. Two blocks away from the congestion of Bazaar del Mundo, in a bright yellow building, this shop specializes in ethnic and vintage beads, eclectic and nomadic treasures, and jewelry by world and local artists. Fiber artists, jewelry artists, quilters, and mixed-media artists note: you'll find sari borders and fabric pieces from India, Guatemala, and Equador to add creative touches to your home, clothing, or artwork. A generous selection of beads and components from Asia, Africa, and Latin America are also offered here, including baskets, masks, icons, drums, boxes, weavings, and religious art. Get on their mailing list and be advised of their upcoming trunk shows.
