Bienvenido, loyal reader. Please join Bruce and Mary as they discover in their own backyard what they had been searchingÂ widely for, provecho!
Mary is at the entrance of Papeleria Limon located in Old Town, Vallarta on Calle Carranza entre Av Insurgentes y Calle Constitucion.
Right inside the door is this colorful display of wrapping paper. All the clerks are busy with people at the moment soÂ we take the time to browse a little.
Ah, so now we know where to buy gift bags and …
Tissue paper in many colors.
Here’s quite an assortment of party favors and decorations.
Greeting cards are a little harder to find in Mexico than you might expect.
They stock all styles and sizes of notebooks. Mary being the great note-taker that she is has bought many here.
And of course they stock a vast array of paper, colored paper, markers, and tape, everything you would expect in an office supply store.
Here is an assortment of day planners. Stacked above you can see canvases.
For kids of all ages, streamers, coloring books and puzzles.
AndÂ more fun, juguetes, games.
Displayed here are backpacks for back-to-schoolers and adults.
We think this is pretty cool, a world class selection of flags.
We are a little surprised that this mom and pop tienda handles HP printers.
We’ve shopped Â in this store many times but this the first time we have had the chance to meet the muy amable owner, Luis, who directs us to…
The very talented Rosy. In front of her is our custom made 2015 calendar featuring, naturally, pix of the grand-kids. We had been back to Office Depot for our 2016 edition but they no longer do that. We checked out the Kodak store in Plaza Caracol and they directed us to either Sam’s Club or Costco but we were not too excited about those prospects. So you can imagine how excited we were to find that Rosy, right here in our neighborhood Papeleria, is quite capable of creating our 2016 calendar.
Rosy has plugged our thumb drive into her computer and is calling up pix, following Mary’s directions.
This day Rosy is assisted by Rosita.
Two days later we stop and in and the calendar is done. And believe me friends, it is Niagara Falls for Mary.
Thanks for visiting gentle readers. If any you have favorite tiendas to share or comentarios on any subject, Bruce and Mary are always happy to hear from you. Hasta proximo Domingo!
