It's that time of year again, when Winter Rains come and go and Giant White Tents begin to pop up all across town. Yes, It's Gem Show Time!...which means just over two weeks filled with dozens of Gem, Bead and Mineral Shows. We love going to just absorb all the color, bling and pageantry on display. Not much comes up from Mexico or Latin America. Just rocks and copper, mainly. Of course this also means Kevin is hitting the road more frequently as the Winter Season means 'the Hunt' is in High gear. Here are a few of the treasures in the shop (or making there way) in the coming weeks.
We carry the largest selection of Vintage Mexican Wares in all of the Southwest. We also carry one of the largest Vintage Mexican/Latin American Textiles collections as well.
If you haven't been down for Gem Show, you are missing the biggest and best. Please plan on coming for a day or two and make Arte one of your destinations. You will not find anything remotely similar at the Gem Shows.
