Destination Mexico and Guatemala: for Esquipulas it is in 15 days!
Destination Mexico and Guatemala this is the first shopping trip of 2016, Lucia and I are leaving Paris on Friday March 11 for mexico then I continue alone for the Guatemala ! We’re both going to be traveling around the world looking for lots of new decor from Mexico or from Guatemala, and decorative items that we come across at random.
You can take the opportunity to order.
- Have you seen an item you like and is no longer in stock? They are all on the page Second chance of the site, on each product you can register to let us know that you would like to buy it.
- You want a particular product from Mexico or Guatemala ? Write U.S to ask us if we can bring it back to you.
In any case, we promise you nothing, but we will make every effort to find what you asked us for!
A busy shopping list for Mexico and Guatemala.
Of course we will also see the craftsmen with whom we work regularly to replenish stocks of calaveras wonderful, of Catrinas dolled up, cactor masks mexicans ex-votos hearts, of objects bearing the image of Frida Kahlo and fabrics and fabrics.
This year we have planned some surprises for you! I'm going to snoop around on the weary side arenas where the famous Lucha Libre matches take place; but also around San Miguel de Allende which are full of craftsmen making display cases, hearts, figurines, etc. With a little luck I will also find paper mache devils since it is the time of the Semana santa !
At Guatemala it will be an opportunity for me to go and meet the community of Sanik women with whom we have started to establish contacts so that they become suppliers of Tienda. I am very impatient. These cooperatives founded by women from my country play a very important role in their emancipation and I really want to give them a chance to develop.
I will also be able to renew my stock of wooden masks and statues from Guatemala, it's been a long time since there have been any in the store and that's a shame. It is always quite complicated to export wood from Guatemala, you need a lot of permits, but this year I will have time to take care of it.
