Our top quality Mexican folk art shop, was housed in a brick building built in 1919, in one of the city’s most charming neighborhoods. With its terrazzo floors and high ceilings, our space was riotously colorful, filled with constantly rotating folk art hand-selected and purchased through fair, direct trade practices in Mexico by Zinnia owner Anne Damon. Since May 16, 2022, we've become an online only store and are no longer operating the brick and mortar store.
Anne visits different regions of Mexico on each trip, seeking out artisans in their homes or studios. She selects the most well-made, unusual items and purchases directly from artisans, at the prices set by them. She also searches in local mercados and among a handful of Mexico-based folk art dealers.
Because Anne selects every item personally, the objects we sell are often one-of-a-kind. Everything is handmade, pretty much everything is made in Mexico (a few things from Guatemala and Peru) and, as Anne can describe when you walk in the door, everything is chosen with an eye to quality and beauty. The result is one of the most beautiful collections of Mexican crafts in this country.
