If you’re throwing a party (regardless of theme) Alamo Fiesta is must-see destination. Garlands, papel picado, piñatas, and hand-painted tin ornaments can be purchased at prices that might make you go overboard. Talavera housewares, serapes, masks, and Mexican dresses (made in Mexico especially for the store) make Alamo Fiesta a cheerful one-stop-shopping destination for out-of-town guests. Even the adjacent higher-end folk art gallery boasts hard-to-believe price tags. Don’t miss the back patio with its cheerful array of imported metal lawn ornaments (the roosters are very popular), and candy-colored ceramic snakes that climb the wall.
