Made By Hand in Mexico Post-Black Friday Sale

I’m getting a late start on Black Friday Specials. I intend to post more through the weekend and into next week. This is a perfect way to support indigenous artisan craft in Mexico — textiles, jewelry and more. Today, we are starting with embroidered bags and jewelry. Here in New Mexico, we’ve had a whirlwind Thanksgiving. My son and soon to be daughter-in-law are here with me in Taos, so I’m distracted in a good way. Chilly. But warm in the sun. I hope these days bring you happiness and joy, filled with good company and food.

TAKE 20% OFF ALL LISTED PRICES. Use CODE 20BFS when you email me that you want one of these pieces.

How to Tell me the item you want by number. Send me your mailing address. I will send you a PayPal invoice after you ID your choices. The invoice will include the cost of the garment + $12 mailing. If you want more than one piece, I’m happy to combine mailing. I’ll be mailing from Taos, NM. Next day mailing guarantee if you order and buy before December 10. On December 11, I’m in transit to return to Oaxaca.

These bags are about 10” wide x 9” high and have a 44” strap that easily works as a cross-body bag. Holds just enough to be very useful: coin purse, lipstick, brush or comb, cell phone and shopping list. I use mine for daily wear. Pretty enough for an evening out and for gift-giving.
