Staff Writer Melissa Clemente: Can we start with your name?

Roberto: Roberto

Clemente: What is the name of your shop?

Roberto: Mexisons

Clemente: What do you do?

Roberto: I bring art from all over Mexico, and what we try to do is reveal what is considered Mexican art or Mexican culture, we try to expose art from all over Mexico and not just what is very common out there. A lot of people when they come to our booth, they see things they usually don’t typically see anywhere else.

Clemente: So, show us a little bit of what you have around here.

Roberto: One of our biggest things is our Catrina’s does come from Capula, Michoacan, they are all handmade and they are all one of a kind. Our mugs are from Puebla and our ceramic we just brought in from Oaxaca. Something that is also very popular right now is the earrings from Michoacán, everything is hand-painted so every set of earrings is unique.
