Summer is half way over! These past few months have gone by so fast and everything has been a blur lately. We have several exciting announcements to make (we will disclose very soon)! In the meantime, we are preparing for our next pop-up. When we began our Mi Reina Mobile Boutique adventure, it was envisioned solely for our Tucson community. However, we have made some good friends along the way in both Arizona and California, specially other local entrepreneurs who carry similar goals and interests as us. One such business is CATRINAS DE COLORES (www.catrinasdecolores.com). Catrinas de Colores is
“Inspired by Mexican culture Catrinas de Colores brings the beauty of artesanias to Los Angeles in a unique style.”
Based out of Inglewood, California, Catrinas de Colores also began their small business journey last year and have collaborated with Mi Reina Mobile Boutique’s pop-up’s in Tucson. What we love about Catrinas de Colores is everything they sell is authentic and handmade from Mexican artisans. They also handpick each item and showcase what they carry through speciality events and local pop-ups. My personal favorites are their beautiful, Mexican embroidered blouses, leather wallets and huaraches!
On Sunday, August 13th from 10am-3pm, Catrinas de Colores will be hosting a VENICE POP-UP at 1808 Lincoln Boulevard (parking lot). They will be displaying their latest items! They also invited other local artists: GZ.JR, ORIGINAL ROOTS and US, MI REINA MOBILE BOUTIQUE! At first, we hesitated to join in the fun because our Mi Reina 1961 Siesta Liner Trailer or 1957 Chevrolet Truck will not be joining us. It feels weird to think we will be doing this pop-up without them. Our trailer and truck are in Tucson and we look forward to reuniting soon! We just could not turn down this opportunity! We are excited to support Catrinas de Colores and meeting the other vendors. If you are in the Los Angeles area, please cruise over to Venice, come stop by and say hi!
