Last Week at GUILD and Red Tag Sale Next Week!

Mexican Sugar skulls for Day of the Dead

Saturday, February 25 will be the last day at GUILD Collective for Zinnia Folk Arts!

We are moving to our new space at 826 West 50th in Minneapolis and hope to open in late April or early May, 2012.

GUILD Collective  will be having a Red Tag sale throughout the store from Wed, February 22 through Saturday, February 25 and ALL Zinnia Folk Arts will be 20% off.  A few things will be marked down even more…

What will be included?  Day of the Dead folk art, some Guatemalan saints, some ceramics, some Frida Kahlo things, glassware, and a few random things that are “last ones.”

If you’re wondering whether something will be marked down, just ask on the handy form below!


Shiny Alpaca or German Silver Handmade Folk Art from Mexico

German silver boxes

German Silver Napkin Rings

German silver earrings

Alpaca Earrings Available in the online shop, click on the photo!

How do you like these alpaca boxes, napkin holders and earrings? These are made of an alloy of silver, called “Alpaca” in Mexico
but also known as nickel silver or “German silver.”
These pieces are lovely, shiny and so much less expensive than silver. AND, they do not tarnish, so no need to use elbow grease.

These are available at GUILD Collective or contact me (with the handy form below) for prices and sizes.

Happy Three Kings Day!

Make the Season Shiny and Bright

Do you like unusual ornaments? Not just those shiny balls you see everywhere?  Zinnia has lots of colorful, unique ornaments…here are just a few examples. We definitely have the shiny Mexican tin ornaments in all kinds of shapes–painted and unpainted. And hearts and sacred hearts made of the non-tarnishing nickel silver. And lots of funny ones made of paper mache.

The ornaments above (and many others) are available at GUILD…
Prices range from $3-$16.

Shop Small TODAY, Saturday, November 26, at Zinnia Folk Arts

Zinnia Folk Arts at GUILD Collective will be participating in the efforts to encourage people to
“Shop Small”
on Saturday, November 26–the day after Black Friday.

What’s so great about it is that if you use your American Express card to purchase something from a small business, you will receive a $25 credit from American Express on your next statement. You must register your American Express Card right here to get the offer!

We all know that small businesses are essential for community economies and that they provide a  spark of  uniqueness and creativity in what’s rapidly becoming a cookie-cutter world. You won’t find a Zinnia Folk Arts on every corner, in every city and every state.

You will only find it at GUILD Collective, 4414 Excelsior Blvd, St. Louis Park, MN.

We’d love to have your support!
