El Zocalo is the perfect place to find that special, one-of-a-kind gift, especially if you seek something with a Latin American motif. The shop specializes in importing hand-made crafts, jewelry and home decor as well as other off-the-wall items like 'Day of the Dead' skeletons, Frida Kahlo products, and much more. Many of the products are made by artists in Mexico, Guatemala, Peru and other parts of Central and South America.
Nicknamed The Goose, this locally owned boutique has been selling women's clothing since 1994. Their collection combines city and beach styles and the owners always carry great brands and designers.

The owner of this boutique gallery located in the Lamar Park Shopping Center brings a bit of L.A. to add to the wardrobes of Corpus Christi denizens. She spent some time in the 'City of Angels' and decided the South Padre Island could use a little California style. The shop sells women's clothes, jewelry, hats and handbags. On the racks, the styles range from formal to casual and though the cost of some pieces may be exorbitant, the quality and design usually merits the price.
