Really Nice, a little light concerning the quality but I understood that with the low price. The sellers are super nice and serious, great service: the parcel is very cute.

About

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.

    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.
