You can be sure that the piece was designed by a Mexican artisan and not by a corporation!

"Friends, this shop is AMAZING!!! The quality and scope of Anne's selections and her talent for displaying it are awesome! It feels like an art gallery and the home of someone in Mexico at the same time! I loved her Day of the Dead theme which permeated the store right now. I am leaving for Mexico next week to take part in the celebrations there and I feel totally immersed in the culture. If you are looking for a special gift, miss Mexico, or just want to brighten your day, run, don't walk to Zinnia Folk Arts in Edina (sic Minneapolis!) for an infusion of joy shopping."
