South Waterfront, Downtown(a block and a half south of Punta Langosta)
Cozumelmexico.net carefully chooses its unique boutiques that are seen here on our Cozumel Shopping pages. Most shoppes are clearly Mexican style and sell merchandise made here in Mexico. But one particular non-Mexican shoppe recently caught our eye; "Deniz," home store. This most unique store is run by a Turkish man named, Faruk Latifses and his Mexican wife, Mariela. Faruk comes from Istambul, Turkey, where his family's trade is artisan art specializing in making hand-made glass lamps. He imports his family's one of a kind art and sells it here at factory prices.
Shoppers can select from exotic chandelier style ceiling lamps, small table lamps in 2 sizes, wall sconces and an upright style that is similar to a traditional floor lamp.
This boutique caters to the discriminating travelers that frequent the Island searching for an unusual souvenir to bring home.
The uniqueness of these hand crafted lamps are so tantalizing, that we bought a mosaic table lamp (also called an Ottoman Lamp) for our office desk. The Ottoman lamps are made from a high quality crushed glass that is individually pieced together to form patterns or mosaics. There are many colors to choose from. Some are solid colors with beautifully shaped glass, while others include a vast array of colors. There is also clear crushed glass available. All of the merchandise is 100% hand made. Most of the smaller lamps are surprisingly light although sterdy in construction. The weight of these works of art make them easy to take back with you.
When you purchase a piece, the owner will carefully and meticulously pack it for you to take back to the airport or cruise ship.
Among the mix of of merchandise is also exquisite hand embroidered Turkish silk pillows. The pillows make great conversation piece and like everything else in the shop they are all one-of-a-kind.
The shop is directly across the street from the Mega Grocery store on the waterfront. You will see 2 colorful sconce (wall) lamps hanging outside the front door.
Mention you saw this them on cozumelmexico.net, and they will give you a further discount.
