Exquisite & Unparalleled Selection of Fair-Trade Mexican Goods & Gifts

Less than 10 minutes from Manhattan and just two stops in to BKNY (Lorimer stop on the L) and you're in the heart of Mexico with highlights of the country's best hand craftsmen and women. The owner, Emily Cantrell, who lived in Mexico for several years, now returns frequently to meet with local artisans and personally select and purchase each and every item. Don't miss out on Cantrell's unparalleled selection of linen guayaberas (Mexican wedding shirts), intricate silver jewelry and ever popular colorful lucha libre (Mexican wrestling) masks. In addition to Cantrell's remarkable collection of goods and gifts, her warmth, charm and knowledge make this little gem of a boutique a destination in itself.

Huitzilli carries the widest selection and highest quality Guayaberas (Mexican wedding shirts) in NYC. It's worth the short trip to Emily Cantrell's store!

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
