It’s not that I’m the craftiest person in the world.
I have handy tendencies.
In Mexico, there are few stores that sell a variety of items. If you want to purchase a present for someone, you’ll need to visit one store to purchase the present, a second to purchase the wrapping paper, a third to secure the tape and a fourth to purchase a greeting card.
Nothing is simple here.
So when my cab sped past a store called Fantasias Miguel, I immediately knew what it was: Mexico’s answer to Michael’s Arts and Crafts. What I did not know at the time is that Famtasias Miguel is even better!!
A few weeks passed and I returned to the store with a friend and her crafty buddy. When we walked in, I was amazed. You enter the store and head downstairs. The first thing you see is an incredibly massive jewelry counter. There are beads, clasps, necklaces, tutorials and a lot of staffers ready to teach you how to make jewelry. There are tutorials on rotating displays and tutorials hanging on large boards over the counter.
Because it’s Christmas, there are trees throughout the store to inspire you, and staffers wearing Christmas headbands to compliment their normal uniforms, ready to assist you.
There are tons and tons of displays.
There are displays that show you how to decorate styrofoam ornaments using sacks of glitter….
There are displays that show you how to decorate ordinary, boring letters amd make them fancy for your wall…
And aisles and aisles of nothing but ribbon!
There are displays that showcase do-it-yourself ornament options.
I’m excited that I’ve discovered Fantasias Miguel. It will make school projects so much easier to shop for.
One stop shopping!
And, once I find some free time, I’m planning to wander around Fantasias Miguel and attempt a few of those projects from one of the many displays!
