Mexico City

image: mexican drapsMexico City is the capital of a country, which is home to some of the best craftsmen in the world. It is a magnet for Mexicans and visitors alike and a shopper’s paradise! Whether you are an eagle-eyed bargain hunter or a serious collector there is something here for everyone.

On this programme, we visit some of the city’s best markets and discovers fantastic bargains and local craft treasures. We hunt down an old work of art in the oldest pawn shop in the Americas, visit Puebla, home to the best pottery and tiles, and find out what real silver is actually made of.
