Looking For Something Not Made In China?

We still have genuine artisans here
BY: CATHY WATKINS

If you’re looking for a souvenir that’s not made in China, come on out to the Amelia Wilkes Plaza across the street from Mi Casa restaurant in downtown Cabo San Lucas  any Friday from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Everything for sale there is hand-made and created by the talented artisans themselves.  Yes, you can still find wonderful natural hand-made crafts in Cabo. 

At this artisan market, one can find colorful macramé bracelets and necklaces and earings made with semi-precious stones or seeds. 

Eleuteria from Oaxaca weaves baskets from palm leaves and uses natural dyes to add color.  She has everything imaginable from coin purses, eyeglass cases, earings, baskets large and small, and even wine bottle covers. 

There are wonderful products made from honey such as shampoo, candy, and stress relievers.  

You can find a natural bug repellant spray for people and animals that contains a special anti-tick ingredient along with deodorizers and cleaning solutions.  

Then, there’s Lorena, an artist who bases her work on the concept of recycling.  She collects stones, seeds, shells, and plants which she recycles into necklaces and earings.  She has agate from Vancouver, stones from Cerritos, East Cape shells, and Amber from Chiapas. Some of these items she picks up while traveling and others are brought to her by friends, which makes each piece special and unique.   Her other line uses aluminum bottle caps for creating modern sleek jewelry and key chains.  

Another stand sells beautiful choya cactus crosses, oil images of the arch, and acrylic shell paintings.  You can also find amazing wreaths, and many other handicrafts, and even artisan bread made by Max.   For more information contact Natalie – 624-217-9562 or info@natalieevaniew.com For Spanish: Max 624 108 2250 or tomyrosa@gmail.com. /wait just a darn minute. If you have to use the Spanish info line, how are you reading this, we would like to know?
