The Vendors


Every year at the Dia de los Muertos celebration at the Desert Botanical Garden, a number of vendors set up in one of the exhibition spaces and sell all kinds of Latin influenced items.  This pretty lady in the South American costume was selling her gorgeous bead work.  She has some beautiful things on display.


I thought I'd show you a few other things I saw at this little marketplace.

This one made me think that ET might not have made it home after all.





























This one is a not so subtle reminder that sun bathing is not really very good for you.

































I loved this one!  It made me laugh!


I rarely buy anything at this event but I fell in love with this very tiny Oaxacan wood carving so, he came home with me.  He's going to hang out on one of the shelves of my bookcase.

Oh I love the Abbey Road scene Sharon, someone had a sense of humour 😊 I think your purchase is adorable, would have probably come home with me too 😊

What great fun! I don't see much that I would buy, except for your Oaxacan piece, but it looks like a great place to spend a few hours...

I like all of the costumes and colors in these events. Cute cat!

Steve Reed said...

That's a great carving! And yes, I love the Abbey Road creation too. :)

It's the Abbey Road one that I like most!

This day has always been such an important tradition and I hope that it continues. Your purchase certainly is delightful. Whenever I am in México I try to find a skeleton bride because I think those figures are quite amusing but so far have not found the one that is just "exactly right."
