This store is just a little ways off the main street of the San Blas arts district in Cusco, but definitely worth the diversion. Inside, funky, modern jewelry and handbags are mixed with neatly hung vintage dresses, shirts, and jackets. The walls are covered with artistically placed magazine pages that reflect the style of the wares for sale. It's one of those stores where you go in thinking "oh I could get a souvenir here" and end up buying one or more of the beautiful bobbles for yourself.
The coffee at l'Atelier is delicious and the vintage clothes and up-cycled accessories are certainly worth a stop, but you'll have a hard time tearing yourself away from the second-story window. It's the perfect spot to post up and scribble in your travel journal while watching the goings-on of the neighborhood below.
