With paint in hand, they wanted to make sure their customers could enjoy vibrant energy in all aspects of the shopping experience. They feature local artwork, folk art and handmade jewelry, specializing in ethnic items such as Mexican, Tibetan and Nepalise, just to mention a few.
Pulquerios and El Sol Studios are owned by two husband and wife teams, both enthusiastic in keeping small businesses alive! As for friends, their primary goal is to "specialize," meaning they wish to be the kind of shop where you can find items unique and different.
They and all the other artists involved try to incorporate re-purposed or found objects into their art. They make an effort to seek out cooperative opportunities in an effort to help encourage the growth of the sometimes overlooked small business.
If you're visiting San Antonio, this is one of those places you'll want to be sure to put on your list! You will find the owners to be a friendly bunch who are always willing to share stories of their travels and the beautiful city of San Antonio.
Store hours are 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, but they are always available for appointment, as well. Interested parties can call ahead. You can also find them on Facebook to learn about the different events they have monthly, often showcasing local artists.
