About

A Creative Space For Local & Hand Made Art

In September of 2010 I found myself living on the Island of Puerto Rico, in a friendly surfer's town known as Rincon.
This town not only proved to be a super laid back and cool place to live- but it was also full of potential for wonderful things to come as a huge pool of artist and artisans made up the bulk of my new found friends.

Did I mention that Rincon is also a tourist town?
Because of the abundance of hot sun, warm sea, sand, palm trees and 85 degree weather in January and unbelievable surf?

So it's no surprise that the first job I got was in a retail surf and beach shop. Selling the usual, t-shirts, jewelry, towels, flip flops tourist stuff..- and I would frequently hear this question-
Do you know where I can get things that are really made In Puerto Rico?

And I would point out the few things that we did have that was authentic Puerto Rican Art-
Which lead me to think-

Wouldn't it be cool to have a shop where everything is- 100% Local and Handmade On the Island?
From Paintings to Clothing to Home Decor?
In Early 2011 I open the doors of a Center which I called Tres Puertas: translated~ Three Doors.

It was luck and appropriate that the building did actually have - Three Physical doors that open wide to the public.
But I was more thinking along the lines of : - Unity- Strength- Diversity.
~Artisan Gallery ~ Artisan Gift shop ~ Artisan Events

All housed within one building. My Aim was to prove that it was and is possible to support local artist and encourage local economy by opening a successful business that is 100% local and handmade.

In our online store here on etsy, you will find original handmade arts & crafts made by artist who live in this beautiful Caribbean Island of Puerto Rico!

Their work permeates with the mixing of Taino Indian, African, & Spanish influences

The Blue Mermaid Gift- an actual brick and mortar shop in the town of Rincon- offer to the world authentic Puerto Rican - Fine Art and Artisan Work.
