Panama is in total lockdown. No tourists, no sales, no food, no medicine. That is what is happening to the Kuna, Wounaan and Embera tribes in Panama. We have worked with them since 1990 and know they are desperate. Traderbrock, Molamagic and Molamadness will match all sales revenue and use it to purchase molas, tagua carvings and baskets for the next 60 days. We have church pastors and others that sell regularly to us via photos and payment through Western Union. The art is shipped through the mail. We have been doing this for years but now it is critical to help the poorest of the poor. Please share this message with your friends.
Panamá está en un encierro total. Sin turistas, sin ventas, sin comida, sin medicinas. Eso es lo que les está pasando a las tribus Kuna, Woumaan y Embera en Panamá. Hemos trabajado con ellos desde 1990 y sabemos que están desesperados. Traderbrock, Molamagic y Molamadness igualarán todos los ingresos de ventas y lo utilizarán para comprar molas, tallas de tagua y cestas durante los próximos 60 días. Tenemos pastores de iglesias y otros que nos venden regularmente a través de fotos y pagos a través de Western Union. El arte se envía por correo. Hemos estado haciendo esto durante años, pero ahora es fundamental ayudar a los más pobres de los pobres. Por favor, comparta este mensaje con sus amigos.
Folks, I hit two of the best Estate Sales I have ever hit this weekend. (9/14/2013) I nearly went broke but the lady with me came through with a loan.
This basket certainly caught my eye as baskets are one of our larger lines and one of my favorite products. Most are from Panama and woven with the chunga fiber. However, this basket is woven with cord. It is as stout as a Mac Truck and I'm not kidding. It has next to no give in it. The design is lovely and it is ready for the wall. It has an 11" diameter nad is 3" deep.
I should comment that the Estate Sale that this came from was the home of a fairly wealthy family. Doctor type and you know how they are about quality... At least I like to think so when I go to mine.
