Amor y Locura (Love and Madness) has all your papier-mâché skeleton needs covered. Every day is Dia de los Muertos at this Gertrude Street store, which celebrate the eerier aspects of Mexican culture. Think sugar skulls, retablo paintings, models of Frida Kahlo and the grimly humorous nicho boxes which depict skeletons eating, playing guitar and generally behaving like living people. Imported Mexican crafts and folk art is the primary draw, but the store also sells antiques and a smattering of furniture, alongside a few items which defy any attempt to describe them sensibly – look out for the antique sleeping puppet.
