Sneak Preview

We’ve been working on a new project we think you sea sirens out there will appreciate.  I can’t tell you exactly what it is yet, but come late June we will have some new inventory that we are pretty stoked about.

This project has been in the works for a while now…I hope you all love it as much as I do.

Here is a little sneak peak, but there is SO much more to come, keep an eye out.



Curator – Besos de Sal project featuring some of my favorite, hand-picked creations.

Coming soon as part of a special project entitled Besos de Sal

Julio Soto’s artwork on the cover of Viva Puerto magazine

I can’t believe I haven’t posted these images yet.  Julio was asked to do these covers for Viva Puerto magazine over the last couple of months.  The magazine has traditionally used only photographs for the cover.  Barbara, the magazine’s creator / editor, felt she was taking a big risk with the first cover Julio made.  However, it was so well received she asked him to draw the very next issue. Take a look!

That spooky time of year is fast approaching, and in honor of all things macabre we have a bunch of gruesome key chains and hair clips from a Mexico City resin artist we met a few months back.  Each piece is hand detailed and incredibly realistic.  It’s quite a departure from the bright, whimsical pieces we usually carry in the shop, but we were impressed, and a little grossed out, by his creations and thought we’d share.  Come get one if you DARE!!!!!
