Pocas Cosas in New Mexico, August, 2011

Estela took Pocas Cosas to New Mexico in August, 2011. On August 5-7, we were at the Great Southwest Antiques Show at the Fairgrounds in Albuquerque. On August 11-13, we were at the Whitehawk Ethnographic Antiques Show at the Convention Center in Santa Fe. The shows were great!!

While the shows were truly great, the trip through Arizona in August was a bit hot and tough!!  The famous Pocas Cosas doggies and kitties were the worst for wear, as the saying goes.

As we discovered on the way to New Mexico, the air conditioning system on the 1988 VW camper was simply not up to the task!  Estela put cool towels on the animals’ heads on the trip home. Temperatures topped 112 degrees!  Why didn’t she put a cool towel on Stephen’s head as he drove through a very hot desert??

Things were certainly much better while in Santa Fe, where we enjoyed staying in the beautiful countryside at the Casita of our good friends, Ignacio and Carroline Villarreal!!

Little Chispa was perhaps in the best shape of all of us, during the drive home in the VW camper.

    The booth photo at one of the shows looks terrific, as usual. The Casita looks very inviting and lovely. Thanks for sharing the photos and some of the travails associated with collecting, marketing and apprciating some truly lovely arts!
