Wow, what an amazing trip down to Mexico sourcing Talavera tile, sinks, and murals for the website www.MexicanTileDesigns.com! I’ll attempt to give you the highlights in this and subsequent entries, but the whole thing was pretty incredible! Our first stop was Guadalajara (pop 1.5 million). We spent most of our time there shopping in street stalls and searching for more great tile to bring you . We spent several days exploring the trade show, meeting new tile and ceramic vendors and exploring the stores, workshops, and amazing FOOD of Guadalajara.
Here’s a photo of Andy, Rich and Teresa (our angel, interpreter, guide, consolidator and good amiga) discussing our finds over a coffee.
Along the way, Andy and Rich made the acquaintance of some very interesting ladies who gave us some good leads on a line of Day of the Dead Tiles we will soon carry! Watch the website for these and other exciting changes.
