Pasadena = The Folk Tree
Some years ago, my friend dragged me to this store in Pasadena. It didnt look impressive - until I walked in! Rocky Behr (owner) frequently visits and travels to Mexico - especially Michoacan. She really really likes Dia de Los Muertos and offers tours thru the area during muertos season. Ck out her website which also you can also do a virtual visit.
Now, what is not on the website is her selection of jewelry from Oaxaca and Michoacan. Occasionally, she also has vintage sterling Taxco jewelry. Altho I havent seen any top designers they are pretty decent....So if you are anywhere near Southern Calif, make it a point to visit her shop in Pasadena.
Oh yeah, she usually has an exhibit from well known and local artisans...
