Saturday and Sunday, June 8 and 9, 2013, was a stellar weekend for Pocas Cosas. On Saturday, Estela and Pocas Cosas were among the wonderful dealers featured at the California Heritage Museum’s Tile Show, featuring tile and other arts and antiques of early California and Mexico.
Saturday afternoon and evening, Estela and Pocas Cosas attended the incredible show at Xipe Projects in Huntington Beach, CA, on vintage Mexican “Trees-of-Life”, including a very fine panel discussion on Mexican pottery and ceramics and the origins of the Tree-of-Life.
On Sunday, Pocas Cosas was in its spot (N-3) at the fabulous Rose Bowl Flea Market in Pasadena, CA.
The weekend was made very special by the arrival of Laurel Waters, a “new” member of Los Amigos del Arte Popular, from Utopia, Texas. She traveled to California to attend the lecture and show at Xipe Projects. She very much “graced” the entire weekend, attending the Tile Show at the California Heritage Museum, the event at Xipe Projects, and then the Rose Bowl on Sunday. What a great Friend and wonderful new member of Los Amigos!! Laurel is also a master chef and owner of the incredible restaurant, The Laurel Tree, in Utopia, Texas.
