Palomas, Mexico; Roaming The Pink Store


The Pink Store

Day of the Dead isn’t the only thing celebrated at The Pink Store. And not everything here is on the kitschy side. Far from it. Most of the merchandise here is high-end. Owners Ivonne and Sergio Romero make frequent trips deep into Mexico to search out quality items from some well-known artists and craftsmen. Here are examples of statuary and artisan pottery:

The Pink Store is also a great place for some really awesome religious art, such as this massive Archangel Michael:

Time to sneak in a scarlet blooming hedgehog cactus (from my front yard) photo just for the random heck of it:

Not all the arts and crafts in The Pink Store reside on shelves and tables. You’ll also find the walls packed with marvelous finds:

Yes, the lighting fixtures you find here work on U.S. current, as Mexico and the U.S. share the same voltage and plug schemes:

This entire store is packed with so many finds that we always take at least two, and often three, trips around the aisles. We do this upon arrival, before lunch, and again after lunch before departing back to the U.S.

But The Pink Store is more than just a store. It’s also a restaurant. On Friday I’ll show you what we and our guests had for lunch.
