looking for a creative birthday or holiday present? maybe a thank you gift for someone special? MARKET BOXES are a fun way for you to share exactly how smitten you are with mexico! bright colors, locally made products and artisanal craft items will be curated to fill a mystery box shipped directly to your friends and family. (please click on any of the above images to see them in a larger format.) i will personally scour the markets of charming towns throughout mexico to populate a box that is fun and surprising. each month will feature different items chosen with adults in mind. (no alcohol or inappropriate items, just items geared more to adult-ish interests).
the OCTOBER 2020 MARKET BOX is shown in the photos as an example. It contained: (4) napkins of mexican fabric with (4) handmade tin napkin holders; a package of locally-grown moringa tea – made with hibiscus and lemongrass; a tonala pig; (2) organic chocolate bars – made in ajijic; a necklace and earring set made by a local glassmaker; (4) greeting cards featuring mexican photographs; a bar of bien verde soap – made locally from wheatgerm and mint; and (4) glass coasters from a different glassmaker in tonala. fun, right?
you can drop in and order a box occasionally or sign up for a monthly or quarterly membership. occasional, one-time orders must be placed by the 20th of the month, and boxes will be shipped ten-ish days later, on the 1st of the month. for example: if you had ordered the OCTOBER 2020 MARKET BOX you would have RSVP’d by September 20th and it would have shipped on October 1st. all items included will be a surprise (to sender and recipient) and will vary in value, but will be guaranteed to be quality products. included in the box will be a summary and description of the items.
