She discovered the shop via her brother, who is a collector of Day of the Dead objects, and now she too is a big fan.
This place is open to the public for lucky Mexican loving Brisbane folk. When you enter the display room, it is as if a visual bomb went off. So overwhelming en masse.
The shop was full to the brim with amazing handwoven textiles, colourful hand-painted pottery, Day of the Dead folk art, milagros and alpaca jewellery.
Colour and pattern ruled, so it is a great shop in which to browse. And it's cool to discover different places off the beaten track.
I also know that my next wool rug purchase will be Mexican. They were excellent quality and not too outrageously priced. Yet another thing to research and obsess about!
Hand painted pottery owl on the kitchen shelf
This cute little pottery owl took Son # 3's fancy because he was hooting at it. As a reward for mimicking the correct animal sound, I bought it for him. It's safely in the kitchen for now until he can be trusted not to make it fly off the back deck!
