It’s early, I know, but people are already buying Christmas tree ornaments in the Minneapolis shop! We have some very unique decorations and some of them are online. They are all handmade. That means they were not made by the millions by a machine. No, they were actually designed and made by hand, painted by hand and have all of the charm of bigger pieces of Mexican folk art but in a smaller size. And they come from different cities and artisans all over Mexico. Click on the photo to take you to the online shop!
Wood carved animalitos from La Union, Oaxaca.
Cute lacquered airplanes and pilots as a Mexican Christmas ornament handmade in Guerrero.
The star-shaped pinata shows up everywhere in Mexico during the Christmas season. These small straw pinatas decorated with yarn are pretty individually or linked together in a chain.

Beautiful tin musicians from Oaxaca, Mexico. These are 9″ tall and beautifully made. Unique.
