Exactly as pictured. Item comes with impregnated cloth to wipe earrings to keep them from tarnishing. Very happy with purchase.
Very nice ITEM, but not old at all. I think a tad overpriced. Purchased for comparison with items bought in Puebla this year, these were 2 for 1$ US equivalent. Had the owner not written about trying to keep their prices low, I might not have commented thus. The shop owners need to be clear about items being vintage in style, not necessarily VINTAGE Items. BTW I took the statue for a friend who has several old things from his family ...which are actually FROM Mexico ...and his mom said these were new. I know I am a bad person for saying anything. The shop can take it out on me by criticizing me. Doesn't bother me a bit.
Again, nice enough, it vintage in STYLE. Clearly a new item. I can buy similar new items locally. Rather overpriced. Shop needs to clarify vintage STYLE and reflect in prices otherwise they may have a lot of one time only customers. Also, prayer card with ear rings was nice, not included with other items which are going to different people.
Nice item. It is clearly a new item in vintage style. Shop should be clear it is newly made in a vintage STYLE. I think a tad overpriced for this.
Nice. Using for some crafts with Sunday school.

A Match Made in Heaven
MARIPOSAFUERTE is a husband and wife team whose passion for Mexican Folk Art and Arte Popular has its roots in healing from a life changing diagnosis 8 years ago, 4 days after Rad proposed to her. While it took this event to push them back to their creative roots, Tee's cultural connection to her Mexican heritage has been embraced by Rad who fell in love with the story of Guadalupe. He has collected over 300 vintage and antique historical postcards and photographs of the Basilica de Guadalupe & Guadalupe which has documented the evolution and the devotion of her disciples. His unique shrines to the Saints and Religious icons is as diverse as his stunning intricate 3-d diorama- like multimedia shadowboxes and posters. Tee brings a diversity in her colorful creations of Day of the Dead pieces for altars such as Calaveras, multi media religious tiles, shrines and sacred heart jewelry. She also continues to capture moments in time through her photography which she has loved since childhood.
They are both inspired by their Grandmothers' whose love of the Catholic Religion was cornerstone in their lives. They are passionate about collecting vintage religious statues, medals, plaques and other treasures which they bring to their other Etsy store. Visit them at www.etsy.com/shop/vintagelourdes.
They are passionate about coming together to provide you the best experience possible when you buy from them. They try to have a wide variety of treasures, use the best supplies to package your items, and lastly, Rad takes such care & delight in making the shipping box colorful, safe and lovely to open up when you receive your order. Some customers have compared it to opening a lovely gift! They do everything with care and love.
Thank you for your repeat business and we love all of our dedicated customers! We also love shipping to our customers abroad. Please inquire with your specific items including where you live and we will quickly add your country to our listing. Please note that shipping prices just rose this month for our wonderful international buyers so please note that we will combine ship but it will be higher than last year.
We are excited for hunting for new treasures and having a joyful, healthy and exuberant 2016! We hope you also have the same.
Tee and Rad
Owner, Maker, Designer, Curator
About 5 years ago, we moved into a house with an extra bedroom which is now my craft room and Rad has a workspace in the garage.... we are so blessed! Having the extra space decorated really gets our creative juices flowing.
Our Maggie Mae was with us for 12 years and was always our best supporter. She recently passed but she is in our hearts forever.
Shipper, Designer, Owner
Rad is passionate about building extraordinary shadowboxes that require an artist eye, lots of patience and vision. He is amazing!
