Best Place to Buy Knickknacks for Your Cuban Grandma (2011)

China Cabinet

It can be tough shopping for abuela. You want to give her a superuseful blender or a collector's-edition box set of ¿Qué Pasa, U.S.A.?, but you know that, at the end of the day, she'll most appreciate a pastel figurine of a pigtailed girl under a parasol walking a poodle. So quit trolling the DVD section of El Dollarazo like a cheapskate and buy her a classy gift at China Cabinet, home of high-end porcelain figurines, vases, plates, and everything else glossy and sparkly that sits in a chinera. Originally a small store inside Miami International Mall in the '80s, it expanded more than ten years ago to become the grandmother of all gift shops, if your grandmother is the type to wear a silk bata de casa while sipping a cup of sidra in fine crystal and admiring a case full of Lladró, Lalique, Disney Classic, and Precious Moments statuettes. If that sounds like a missing-person description for half your family, trust us, this will become your one-stop shop.
