For the third consecutive year, Amols' has been crowned with a Jeweled Silver Queen's Tiara (buy one in house for only $2.49) and named the best place in San Antonio to purchase a traditional Mexican piñata for your Fiesta partying needs. From colorful donkeys to cacti to mini maracas, there's plenty of room in Amols' piñatas to stuff with Skittles and Starburst and Vero Mango lollipops. Amols' moved locations earlier this year from its shop on South Flores, where it had operated for 55 years, to its new, much larger venue on Fredericksburg Road. Next year, it will celebrate 70 years in the community and continues to be the go-to place for paper flowers, cascarones and everything in between. Sure, April will always be their busiest month of the year because of San Antonio's love affair with Fiesta, but Amols' is far from a seasonal store. It's the Potala Palace of papel picado.
