So last weekend, I also hit up Av. Mexico for their Sunday "Antique" Specials. While most of it was crap... I did see some cool Helmets from Germany, Fancy shmancy jewelry that I would or could never wear, and quite a few over priced pieces of art. Don't cry your eyes... I still weaseled a couple bucks out of hubby and walked away with my own additions to the decor...
This is a bad ass candle. I loved the intricacy of the design and flora..plus I'm a big Virgin junkie. For a mere 500 pesos, this could have sat in your living room. I still don't know where to put the damn thing. But it's so cool.
These three paintings? were 300, and again, I have no idea where to put them... but I am obsessed with those colors.
Apparently, hubby wanted something for himself. He found the best replica of a Mexican dream girl... Seriously, I'm not down for some Mexicana role play... if ya know what I mean.
Finally, we came across a book of Death and how it's been portrayed here in Mexico through time. We justified this 80 peso purchase as a need for reference in the shop.
Next time, we'll try to hit it up a bit earlier in the day. I did see some cool chandliers. PROJECT!!! I'll see you there next week!

- I've been living in Mexico now for about a two years with my hubby and 2 kids. Not exactly by choice, but we're here nonetheless. Luckily, I live with quite a few of the accomodations that i was used to in the states. In spite of those convienences, we also have a water tank with asbestos, outdated electricity, massive amounts of dust, caterpillars that burn your skin, and thousands of windshield washers on every street corner. My kiddos and I are learning to speak spanish and adjust to life away from our family and friends in the States.
