An ofrenda to honor Frida Kahlo


We now have fresh new window displays at both of our stores! Our Alberta St. store has an epic ofrenda honoring Frida Kahlo. All the other windows are filled with oversized sugar skulls and tissue paper marigolds. We're ready for fall and invite you to stop by either store and get inspired to create! We're also stocked up on Halloween and Day of the Dead goodies at both stores.
