For some reason the Mexican silver and pottery is cheaper here in Florida than I have seen it in Mexico!

We loved to and still do collect the ceramic hand made parrots so we can hang them on our caribana deck to make it look tropical. See even in Canada... we feel like we are in the carribean. we found the best deals for them were in cozumel...

cant wait to get some more to create more of our tropical decor looking deck. just keeps you on top of getting another cruise booked. lol
