Puro Muerto ~ Market Square Night Market September 30th

It’s my last Market Square Night Market for the season everyone, and this time I’ll be featuring a huge variety of my muerto themed things! (and those who know, know that’s saying a lot!) If you have any special requests, bring ’em on, and I’ll do my best. The night market sponsored by the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership is filled with so many great vendors, fun, music and food. If you haven’t yet experienced it, now is the time. See yinz soon!

Meet Me in Market Square, Yinz

Pittsburgh! I’ll be back in the saddle for three #PittsburghDowntownPartnership  night markets this summer in market Square, beginning this Friday evening in conjunction with a #PittsburghCulturalTrust #GalleryCrawl. Those of you who have missed me and the store (a few of you, I hope) may feel free to make special requests of items for me to bring and I’ll do my best to find them. Each market will have a particular emphasis on two categories of my merch. Friday we’ll be looking at jewelry in all price ranges and of course, #OaxacanWoodcarvings. The hours will be from 5-10 pm, and I look forward to seeing some old friends and making some new.

Amor Eterno ~ Open House for Dia de los Muertos


Insta-Lindo! Follow Mexico Lindo on Instagram

The site re-do/Shopification is underway (no, hell hasn’t frozen over), and the new Instagram will supplant the current Galeria section, which is using handmade code too old to be useful on multiple platforms and devices. It features some of my favorite photography from these many years of travels, some store items, and some personal collection glimpses. It’s basically the same as my personal instagram, minus the occasional naughty selfie.

June News: Squirrel Hill Night Market and Fundraising for PULSE Victims


12th Anniversary Celebration with Armando Jimenez!


Dia de los Muertos Open House

And now for something completely different…Since last year was just for my husband Jean-Pierre, my father in law Hugo and our dog Adelita, and because this year will be my 10th consecutive year of making ofrendas, I would like for the first time ever to ask the people to decide who we will remember for this years’ ofrendas. Please keep in mind that family members are reserved only for the love letters on the sides of the ofrenda, otherwise it is unfair, as many of us could easily fill an entire ofrenda with ours. The criteria has always been, and will continue to be the following: while fame is not a requirement, someone who has left their mark on the world in a significant way is. Submit your suggestions to me either here in comments or via email If you email me your suggestions please put “DOTD” in your subject line. I will include as many as I possibly can. Pittsburghers please keep in mind hometown heroes as well. And here is the flyer for this years’ event:DOTDFlyermini14

¡Sign Up for Workshops with Maestro Demetrio Garcia Aguilar!



Kids of all ages will have the rare opportunity to work with  a Gran Maestro and make some art in workshops that we will have while Demetrio is here. These will be one hour workshops with a choice of three projects and the cost of $25 includes your materials. The project choices are as follows:

1. Make a calavera or diablito with monarch wings in papier mache and paper.

2. Make a small figure of your own design with self hardening clay.

3. Paint a small figure already created by Demetrio.

The papier mache and clay need time to dry before painting so if you choose the 1st or 2nd options be aware that you will have to paint it on your own at home. It is however, a great way to learn some techniques  from Demetrio.

There are two classes set aside on the following days and times, and space is very limited to 7 students per session, so please be sure that you are committed to attending before you RSVP.

Sunday August 31st from 1:00-2:00 pm

Saturday September 13th from 1:00-2:00 pm

Please RSVP with your date and name and preferred contact info either here in the comments section of this blog entry or by calling 412.422.9984 or you can email Lisa:
