Publisher's Note: If you blog, tweet, instagram, flickr, youtube, let us know if you have archival images and recordings of the Jarcieria. And if you have new images of Oaxaca's artesinal crafts, we'd love to see your photos in the Mercados de Oaxaca (Oaxaca Markets) groups on Facebook and Flickr.

September 25 - Tonight Don Nico and family shutter their store on Mina Street.

Today the Jarcieria el Arte Oaxaqueño is no more, but the owner is alive and trying to stay well and his family continues the store's legacy at a new puesto in The Benito Juarez Market.

In my estimation, El Arte Oaxaqueño was one of the best small stores in the world because of the owner's attention and passion. Don Nico was born in Yalalag and came to Oaxaca City as a young child. Certainly on my Top10 list of things to do in Oaxaca includes visiting Don Nico. During times of great inconsistency, Don Nico has been a beacon for campesinos and visitors. His was not the first folkart store in Oaxaca, but it is the store that has survived the longest. The doors are closing to this establishment as the owner tends to own health. His grandson - Chucho - is opening a new puesto in the Mercado Benito Juarez.


I hope this can motivate those in Oaxaca to take the time to visit the artisans and friends of the artisans.

I've been thinking even more about hangouts and periscope and how they can be used by locals to share. I'm also re-watching Sunday's conversation with Don Nico. In my view, Nicodemus is one of Mexico's true heroes. In developing and selling folk art (artesanias) he was the bridge between rural farmers (campesinos) and the visitors - other Mexicans and foreigners. Watch and weep. Don Nico is closing his store August 25

This small store has its own history. In 1961 this store opened its doors and continues to sell an eclectic mix of wooden figures (alebrijes), woven baskets, hojalata figures, tin frames and lampshades, drums and traditional toys, including trompos and baleros.

Don Nicodemus Bartolo Vásquez is attentive and a master of dichos, including "el que tiene tienda que la atienda, o si no que la venda."

Ask for his permission and take a photo in the store. We'd love to see your pictures of the not so fierce animal figures in the World Crafts group on Flickr.

Don Nico includes a small brochure with information about Oaxacan history and customs with each purchase. It's a small store and well worth a stop en route to the Mercado de Artesanias or the buses to Monte Albán!
