Monday was the start of something new here in Chelem. Paul and Carol hosted the first ever " funky market." They put the word out by mouth and on Facebook, I was surprised at the amount of vendors and great variety that was available.
People came from all over bringing homemade sauces, breads, cookbooks, sea- glass jewelery, homemade purses, signs, stained glass and more. Many of the contributions were locally made and all monies received went to help the indigenous crafters.
Take a look at some of the really cool things that were at Taco Maya yesterday. I hear that there is going to be another event before Christmas, can't wait!
Getting ready for Christmas:
Local painting on leather
I love these hand painted from palm trees, my favorite, "Its a flip, flop day."
Beautiful shell balls, shells found locally
Mobiles made of shells, sea glass, driftwood etc. I sure wish I had bought one of these....
Custom made jewelry
Crosses and jewelry
Handmade bamboo furniture
While many of you were shivering up north, we were all enjoying the sunshine and some great crafts down here in the Yucatan. Come on down and visit with us! Warm breezes and cold beers coming at ya!
