Ajijic Market

The day Layne arrived was the only day during her stay that we could visit a local market so after a short snooze (she had flown a red-eye) we headed off to the cobble-stoned street flanked by tables crowded with wares.  So much candy for the eyes.

I bought myself a birthday gift of silver earrings to replace my hoops I sadly lost while visiting with my mom  in November.  Layne googley-eyed stones, fabrics and sweets.  We talked with ‘shop’ owners: we discovered we ‘met’ this guy painting spoons at Todos Santos on the Baja 2 years ago!  This day he painted us Lands End from Los Cabos!  But we didn’t buy 😦

We buy the bulk of our produce from the Chapala market and some from the organic market in west Ajijic but this market is where we pick up a few odds n’ ends and appreciate more the crafts.  We’ve bought blown glass, kitchen gadgets, leather wallets, & jewelry from here.  Its always great to get a treat and a good price 😉 and know that its providing an income for the locals.
