Three magical days of November in Mexico occurred again this past November 15, 16, and 17th. At Original Friends Dolls, this is our annual milepost to kickoff the season and all summer long we have been working and preparing for this special venue that is returning to the Chapala Yacht Club. On day one, the day before opening day, we arrived to find our location, and unload and setup the tables and signs, handouts, dolls, beautiful.
In this picture, Maga is putting the finishing touches on the table. Maga was dressed as a wood nymph and was a big hit with her antics, as usual! Friends Rick and Wanda brought us sustenance and we sure enjoyed the salmon sandwiches! You can buy food from the invited food vendors and the food is decent, but why not do both. It is fun to reconnect with the various artisans who return year after year, many of them making almost their entire annual sales amounts during these three days. The energy is high and positive and we are not disappointed with the results!
