Were Rick and Debra Hall, living full-time in San Miguel de Allende and owners of the store zócalo.
Together, we have been building artisan friendships over the last 15-20 years, and for Rick, for more than 35 years. Simply put, our artisan friends ensure that we receive the finest folk art produced. We hand select every single item in our store, only accepting the highest quality work that literally speaks to us. Rick and I constantly search for indigenous folk art rarely seen outside of remote regions, and rarely seen outside of Mexico.
By the way, ZOCALO ships worldwide! Safe travels, and we would love to introduce you to the best work of our artisan friends and families.
Halls personally select each item in the store with an evolved
eye gained through years of folk art collecting. Their personal collection
has been photographed for numerous articles and books, and they have organized
museum shows and exhibitions in conjunction with Conaculta and INAH. Rick
and Debra Hall divide their time between San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato
and Pátzcuaro, Michoacán
when they are not on "the
quest for more folk art", that is.
