This is a cute little shop to get sundresses and skirts. Hubberz always finds something in a fun print for me to wear back home, and then I don't wear it for long, ha! They've got cute sunglasses and shoes from all over, you can always

Very dissatisfied with service here. I bought several silver jewelry items as they had a nice selection. I recently bought a pair of silver pearl earings and to my disappointment, they broke within the 3 weeks after wearing them only 2x.

The title about sums it up. They sell a lot of things that would be under $5 or $10 in a market, but here, it is sold for at least twice or even five times that. You are better off scrounging in a resale shop or looking for it online, unless you have a lot of money and are in a rush.

The clothes and accessories are pretty and hip, but are at stupid prices.

At least they're independent (ly grubbing for your money while expending a minimal amount of effort to pocket it?... It's a drag to shop here.)

This store is the best for cute dresses and skirts that are a different style than you will find other places. IT is a great place for A-line skirts and really girly fun stuff. The best thing about the store is the sunglasses. If you are a sunglasses fanatic, you will be in heaven. I've always had a good time with customer service and they are always willing to help find something if you're not sure exactly what you want. The only drawback is that some of the clothes tend to run smaller than conventional department store sizes.

I received a gift for my birthday from this store. It wasn't to my taste, so I drove up to Evanston to return it (I live in Chicago). Turns out they're closed on Mondays.

I drove back up today, only to find that they have a "STRICT" two-week return policy, and they sent me away. Nowhere on the box did it note this policy. And they weren't very nice about it.

First, this is poor customer service. Second, it's bad business! I returned another gift at another store in Evanston and ended up spending 3 times what the original giver had spent!

So... buy here for yourself (if you must), but please, please do not shop for gifts at this store.

My daughter and I love this shop! The merchandise is unique and will not be found anywhere else. The owners have a great eye for special artsy items purchased during there yearly worldwide buying trips. I always receive compliments on the jewelry purchased here. If you are ever in Evanston it is worth a stop and browse. There is a lot to see. And I have always received friendly service!

They have a lot of cute items in the store but unfortunately the items are overpriced. The service was horrible. There was no acknowlegement of my presence when I entered the store. The store clerks were interested more in the music and their own personal gossip. One of the clerks was outright rude and had no sense of tact.
I really love shopping at local boutiques that are unique but, honestly you'll get better service shopping elsewhere

The Mexican Shop has been around awhile, and there's a reason. The owners, who make yearly trips to Mexico to bring back the treasures, know their customers. Find funky youthful women's clothing, silver jewelry, and all sorts of quirky Mexican crafts. My biggest qualm with the store is their hours. They are literally only open until 6PM on weekdays. I am not sure who patronizes this store during the week. Saturdays are absolutely crazy. Expect to wait 30 minutes for a dressing room and don't expect to try on that cute jacket in front of a mirror in the store...it is not allowed. They have an amazing selection of jewerly. Keep in mind that the quality is what you pay for.

PROS: Excellent array of merchandise to choose from
CONS: Business hours are bad and it can get too busy to shop there

Ecclectic and ethnic women's clothing and accessories. Shop owners shut down several months during the winter to find new wares from exotic locales. You're sure to find many unique, one-of-a-kind items here at reasonable prices. Even though it's called the Mexican Shop, not all clothing is Mexican in origin, although there are lots of bright colors and silver jewelery typical of South of the Border. Funky decor makes shopping pleasant and whimsical items make great gifts.
