The first thing I bought in Mexico was a hat…
I kind of like the fedora style and it smashes easily into my handbag…
I love beautiful handmade textiles…the lovely white on ecru pillow covers were only $20 each. The longer red and green textiles were $30. I’m going to make two king size pillow cases in red and two in green. They’ll be so fresh and colorful on beds!
I picked up the cocktail napkins for $4 each at the same little shop where the sweet girl had such a wonderful smile.
The silver jewelry crafted in Mexico is so beautiful…the necklace was made by a local artist and cost less than $30, and I got a wonderful silver bangle.
I collect holy water fonts and I couldn’t resist this pretty red and white one for $20.
And finally, I bought one of the fabulous green pineapples from Michoacan for $160. I see them in the U.S. for not less than $500.
If I took some of my Real Jane friends on a shopping trip, would you want to go? To Mexico? Or where would you like to go shopping?
I may be planning a shopping trip!
I would love to go and interpret I’m bilingual, love going to Mexico

Oh would I love that Kim!

When do we leave
Jane, Isn’t the shopping great in Mexico. I have a house in Ajijic, its in the Lake Chapla area. The people are so friendly, food is wonderful and the best part is the weather. There are some Fort Worth families that have houses there too. Love to show you around sometime.
That sounds so cool Terrye, thank you!
Sounds fabulous. …any shopping with you!
Thank you Molly!
