Back in the 1960's, when Jimi Hendrix wailed on his guitar and hippies ruled, there emerged a funky, exotic little shop in Coconut Grove called the Maya Hatcha. This wonderful treasure chest of the unusual, has a boutique/head shop atmosphere so many of us fondly remember from the good time "flower power" days. Filled with incense, ethnic clothes, handmade jewelry and all things spiritual, the store still looks pretty much the same as it did over 30 years ago.
Almost every inch of space in the store is utilized to display some compelling item; the walls are covered with masks from Indonesia, Africa and Guatemala (the Indonesian dance masks are especially interesting with their hinged jaws and see-through eyes). The shelves are filled with clothes, hats, bags and sarongs. Display racks are everywhere holding everything from greeting cards to earrings. Racks of clothes are brimming with dresses, shirts and garb from all over the world. You'll find a great variety of Kaminski straw hats from Madagascar and lots of eye-catching jewelry including "Naga" necklaces (one of a kind antique necklaces handmade in India from glass beads).
