April 14, 2013 ----  Colorful Spring Tam / Beret Hats for your 18" Doll
to New Hats page

Spring is in the air as Maria, our 18" Doll, visits Posada Los Volcanes in Panajachel Guatemala.  She like other tourists, enjoys visiting the friendly family Posada (recognized by Trip Advisor as the #1 hotel for value and service in Pana).  Maria models the different colors of stylish spring hats that Mayan Artisan Lucia and her family made for Terra Experience.   The hats are good example of Mayan Artisans taking their traditional skills and adapting them into styles and products that appeal to tourists.   

 
 
 

I am putting the hits on the web today

February 20, 2013 ---  Yes I am in Guatemala and can't believe how fast time is going. I meant to posts notes and pictures, but am only now getting time to do so. Keep posted.

December 7, 2012 -  Are you having trouble ordering?  A couple customers have recently contacted me saying they were having trouble using the Terra Experience shopping cart (especially if they are using a MAC or Safari).  I am trying to figure out why.  PLEASE contact me at 608- 849-8720 or Lynn@terraexperience (with your phone number & location) and I can easily work with you to take your order.  Sorry for the inconvenience!!!   Lynn

Sept 21, 2012 -  Again what happened to time.  Here is a link to a page on travel options in Antigua, Panajachel  and Santiago Atitlan

for a short visit.  I will gradually update it.  Guatemala Travel Options

Note from Lynn --- We had a great trip and brought over 1100 pounds of wonderful things (over 200 huipils, 40 Santos,  more Angelina paintings, many skirts, belts and other textiles.  That doesn't include the scarves, bags, and doll clothes (3 new villages).  Also many pictures and stories of artisans.

Now comes the hard part (for me) --- getting each of the unique items on the web.  I figure it takes me at least 10 to 20 minutes each (take pictures, get pictures transferred to computer and web, get items tages and numbered, then adding information and shopping cart).  Thus it takes me quite a while -- so I will announce items that I listed on the web on this news page as well as the Terra Experience Facebook page ( http://www.facebook.com/TerraExperience ).  If you have something you are looking for - let me know and I will try get it on the web sooner rather than later.  Also corrections and suggestions are welcome.  Thanks for your interest in Terra Experience Products!  You make it possible!

April 29, 2012 --- Just finished adding the Angelina Quic paintings I bought this year to her page.

April 24, 2012 ---  Always takes me more time then planned. But I did get my taxes in on time!!!.

Anyway just finished getting the 8" wooden santos I bought this year added to the web.  Some examples


I still have 24 large and many small santos to add.  Just takes a while.  Let me know if you are interested and I will put priority on them.

March 24, 2012 ---- Have just added more 2012 huipils from the following villages:  (More will be coming)

Chichicastenango Huipils:        http://www.terraexperience.com/p_huipils_Chichicastenango.html

March 2, 2012 - Do you ever feel you can't keep up with the flow of time passing?  Well I certainly get that when I realize how long its been since I posted on this page.  Had good holiday sales after a very slow year last year --- thanks all!!! 

Just got back from 5 weeks in Guatemala.  Hope to post pictures of my friends as well as new huipils, doll clothes and many other things I bought.  The shipment is still in transit (hopefully comes in next two week) - but I have managed to get pictures of huipils I bought on the trip on each of the village huipil pages.  Let me know if you are interested in one.  Until they arrive I may have a hard time giving you dimensions and price -  but let me know of your interest and I will do what I can, and put them on the top of the list when they do arrive.   Lynn  lynn@terraexperience.com

December 11, 2011 -  Happy Holidays!!!   Just added 4 more large Angelina Paintings to web!

 

November 27, 2011   

Fair Trade gifts are gifts that come with a story. 
Itís the story of the artisan who handcrafted the beautiful product often in his or her home.  Itís the story of the artisanís children who are in school and eating better because the artisan regularly receives a fair wage for the product.  Itís the story of the community, the environment and the cultural traditions that are sustained by the purchase of the handcrafted product.   When you give a fair trade gift to a friend or loved one, you give a great gift and a story that says so much more.   Wonít you help us share these stories this holiday season?
