last saturday, i headed toward the lovely city of whittier & took a stroll through the historic downtown. loaded with tons of cafes, restaurants, & indie shops, i happened to linger into casita del pueblo on philadelphia street.
“entering this shop is sensory overload in the best possible way”
there are so many things to discover that it’s best to start with a “first lap” & then settle in. if you appreciate vibrant, colorful mexican folk art, you’ve found a small treasure trove inside yolanda garcia’s family run boutique. the lovely ixchel, briefly told me about the store’s history & many relationships with local artists, community outreach, & city events. one thing you’ll instantly feel, is the warm of color, shades indigenous from mexican landscapes, clothing, & art that shows the boldness within the culture. a fun place to pick up a unique gift (especially if you’re looking for dia del los muertos items) or a piece to spruce up a dull home space, something i’ve been looking to do in my own dining room. i can’t wait to score some brunch & wander back into this little hideaway, i’ll certainly be back…
