Tulum - Part 2 Shopping

Of course I didn't go to Mexico just to shop, but it certainly didn't hurt...and shopping in Tulum is a special experience. As you drive down the beach road you would approach a small area carved out of the jungle and a fabulous shop just waiting for you.

And Coqui Coqui where I did a little shopping and wouldn't mind staying if/when I go back.  Bill took this picture while he was on the beach and I was holding up different dresses for him to see and trying to decide what to buy...he loves this game. And evidently so does Locke by the look on his face.




And just look at this cute mother/daughter team selling their goods by our hotel...love! I bought one of their brightly colored wraps and can't wait to wear it!!






So much color, so much goodness, so little time!!!!
It was a little overwhelming, but I was able to come home with a few goodies. 
I would have come home with more, but on the last day I was in one of my favorite shops/happy place until they told me their credit card machine wasn't working and I would have to pay cash. After running up and down the road and trying FIVE different ATM's that DIDN'T work I admitted defeat. I had to go back to the store and put half my items back...it was like Sophie's Choice. Sadly, the gifts I had picked out for my sisters didn't make the cut - sorry Susan & Betsy! (But you are welcome to borrow my fabulous shirts, wraps, bags etc. After all, what are sisters for, right?)
