Best Place to Tap Your Inner Mexican

RoCo Traders

Situated on the eastern edge of St. Pete’s Grand Central district, this shop is classily arrayed with exotic furniture, jewelry, pottery, art and tchotchkes galore, the large majority of it imported from Mexico. Owners Durella Rodriguez and Mary Coyle take regular buying trips south of the border to give the RoCo its distinctly ethnic flavor. The merch ranges from heavy wood barstools to delicate faux flowers, and lots and lots of neat stuff made out of silver. Oh, and make sure you check out the plateful of $10 watches. 2115 Central Ave., St. Petersburg, 727-895-8922.
