In November 1999, I opened "La Sirena" ("The Mermaid") a Mexican folk art store in New York City. The store reflects the beauty and richness of Mexico and the people who live there.
"La Sirena" is filled with folk art from many regions of Mexico, from traditional marketplace merchandise to museum quality pieces in all price ranges. Much of the work is crafted by families whose traditions have been handed down from generation to generation. Families whose lives, in and of themselves, are living art. The pieces are bought directly from the artists, whenever possible. This is very important because it ensures that the artist fully profits and that traditions live on.
Come visit a piece of Mexico on East 3rd street in New York City and take a look at some of the fun, creative and beautiful folk art we currently have in stock.
If you have any questions or want to place a phone order, contact us: e-mail La Sirena or call 212-780-9113. We would love to hear from you.
