The 'Estrellas'... all the Mexican ladies that are working on micro-enterprise/cottage industry development via sewn products are moving into a new level.
Lori has been praying and working (hard) to help the ladies organize and begin an organized sales front to the community they live in.
The ladies met, and have organized around a new idea: sell and advert at the TIANGES.
WHAT is a Tianges, you ask???
Well, a Tianges is a staple of Mexican life. Every village has one 2-3 days a week. In large cities like Tijuana, they move around.
The best American equiv is a SWAP MEET... loaded with individual vendors set up with pop-up tents and portable tables... lots of various things sold... hot churros and champurado (a hot drink with chocolate and corn meal)... everything from vegetables to boots to timing belts for cars to tools... lots (and lots) of USED items, especially clothing...
Bartering is encouraged.
The Estrellas have begun the effort to have a regular table at the San Vicente Tianges.
