Oaxaca City – Please visit one of our favorite folk art stores in all of Mexico! Jarcieria El Arte Oaxaqueño celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2011. This is a remarkable milestone for a small business. Stop on by and congratulate owner Nicodemus Bartolo Vásquez.
The store is a few blocks south of the zócalo at Mina #317 at the corner of J.P. Garcia. It is open 10am-8pm Monday to Saturday and 10am-5pm Sundays.
Today (Sunday, January 16) there will be a special ceremony, nothing short of an official blessing that will take place at 4pm. If you can, stop on by. It will be a magical experience for all.
