Brittany Maria: "The Manos Cruceñas Artisan Store is a wonderful place to do some local shopping in Santa Cruz while supporting the women in the community! You can find beautiful and high-quality local products that are handmade by women in and around Santa Cruz. The store sells gorgeous scarves, bags, purses, aprons, jewelry and beaded items. It felt very satisfying for me to help support the local women in this small and secluded community. This store accepts credit cards as well. If you are traveling to Santa Cruz, definitely make sure to stop here!"
Jeanne M: As an Airbnb host in Santa Cruz, I have had the pleasure of sending many visitors to the Manos Cruceñas Artisan Store. They always come back delighted with their purchases and frequently tell me that choosing amongst the unique and beautifully made products was so hard that they decided to buy several. It is a favorite shopping destination for all of my guests, not least because of the impact their purchases make in the lives of women, many of whom had not previously earned an income of their own.
Jenn K.: "The Manos Cruceñas Artisan Store offers beautifully hand made textiles, scarves, coasters, table runners, aprons, wallets and bags, as well as jewelry and other beaded items. All purchases directly benefit the local community and this really special program that aims at empowering the youth, and especially the girls."
