"So many things are sold out!" Yes, they are! We closed our brick and mortar store at the end of May, 2022 and during the process sold almost ALL of our merchandise. It's been a slow process to obtain more quality folk art for several reasons. One of the multiple reasons is that there's a world-wide pandemic going on and travel, though it's coming back, has been limited. I waited until I felt safe to return to Mexico and that was in late July. When I arrived, I discovered that many things have changed in Mexico--artisans died, artisans have gone out of business, folk artists have moved to places that I couldn't find and some folk artists left the folk art business completely. When I arrived in Dolores Hidalgo to look over the talavera ceramics order I had placed more than two months before, I was told that it wasn't ready because they had 2 people out on maternity leave and 2 others had left to go work in a factory in another town. So, my order was going to be delayed another 3-4 weeks!
So, most of the new merchandise that I purchased on the July/August buying trip is still in Mexico waiting for the ceramics to be finished. It will get here eventually and it's one of those things that I don't have any control over.
If you're on the mailing list, you'll be the first to know when the new merchandise arrives.
Thanks for your patience!
