MEET THE MEXICALI MAKER: PATRICIA, MEXICO

Jan 23, 2019

Patricia is one of the original vendors we met on our first buying trip to Mexico as a family!

We met over 20 years ago while wandering through the very crowded and narrow walkways of the local markets, we were drawn to her large selection of silver plated alpaca earrings and the happy banter between employees. To this day there are still some of the original staff from when we made our first buy working with her, which says a lot about their happiness at their workplace!

Patricia makes our fashion alpaca jewelry, which is a mixed metal coated with silver.  Although it is not sterling silver throughout, it is a less expensive alternative that has the look of silver and can be cleaned with a silver cloth. We also get our ever-popular bobble head funny animals from her, which are made from locally sourced nuts. When we started purchasing these there were only two options, turtles and armadillos. Today there are well over fifty different animals in the funny bobble animal menagerie, ranging from to rabbits to moose!
