I have wanted to remodel my website for some time and this will give me an opportunity to make some much needed changes. I look forward to having a better website with lots of new merchandise. I started Vintage Mexican in to share my love of the beauty and whimsy of Mexican folk craft. I thank you, my wonderful customers, for all your business on my little site. I will leave the site up and if you have any questions about Mexican antiques or folk crafts, please feel free to email me at Vintage Mexican.
