|ˇHola, dear Friends of Mexico Lindo! Thanks to everyone who came for our 3rd Anniversary fiesta on Cinco de Mayo. If you weren't there, you missed Jean-Pierre's mole, guacamole, salsa and sangria (and his mothers' polvorones). We had a wonderful time!|
Here are some special items that we thought you'd like to know about:
|New Pineda Covalin styles have arrived, along with a re-stock of some old favorites, such as this luscious extra large Monarch butterfly shawl in silk and velvet for $165. Pineda Covalin is famous for their exquisite scarves, shawls and ties made in 100% silk with classic Mexican motifs.
|Speaking of monarch butterflies, we have a few new incredible miniature trees of life with monarchs, by artist Martin Hernández Sánchez of Metepec. $175-185|
|Lovers of Huichol art may want to come in and check out this unusual large round yarn painting. (If folks from out of town would like a closer view, email Lisa). This is 23" x 23" and is priced at $485.
|Also back in stock are the very popular pewter Stars of David with natural miniature flowers, in a variety of color combinations, in two sizes from $34.00 ~ $44.00.
|Recommended reading: From author Sam Quinones: True Tales from Another Mexico and Antonio's Gun. Publisher University of New Mexico Press describes them as follows: "Sam Quinones' first book, True Tales From Another Mexico, was acclaimed for the way it peered into the corners of that country for its larger truths and complexities. Antonio's Gun and Delfino's Dream, Quinones's second collection of nonfiction tales, does the same for one of the most important issues of our times: the migration of Mexicans to the United States. Quinones has covered the world of Mexican immigrants for the last thirteen years-from Chicago to Oaxaca, Michoacan to southeast Los Angeles, Tijuana to Texas. Along the way, he has uncovered stories that help illuminate all that Mexicans seek when they come north, how they change their new country, and are changed by it". Available in the store or by clicking the Amazon link to the left.|
|Soccer jerseys are back in stock in limited supply. In addition to the many favorite Mexican teams, such as Selección Nacional, Pumas and Chivas, we also have Brasil, Argentina, Ecuador, Spain and Germany, as well as club teams Barcelona, AC Milan and Liverpool, to name just a few. Most are in size extra large. Priced at only $24.00, you may want to get several!|
|It's not too late to join the Polar Bear Raffle! Help us to adopt Koda Rogers and Nuka McFeely, the Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium's star polar bears for a chance to win a Polar Bear alebrije by Oaxacan artist Armando Jiménez!
