Benita Grijalva Sanchez is one of nine siblings. The Sanchez family is well known and respected for making quality Rustic Mexican furniture. Jose, Benita's youngest brother had started his store called "Old Santa Fe Spirits" in Scottsdale, AZ. So, we made a visit to see what he was doing. Benita loved it and wanted to be a part. It was a dream come true for Benita who longed to start her own thing in Santa Fe. The La Catrina was born February 2018.
The La Catrina makes every effort to buy directly from the artisans. We believe this will help to preserve the culture and history of Mexican Folk. Each item is handmade by artisans who use traditional techniques to create unique and luxurious pieces at affordable prices. The Mexican culture and history are expressed in each piece.
Benita's sharp eye and taste for the one of a kind pieces can be found at the La Catrina. Stop by and see for yourself some of our unique and colorful pieces like: Amate Bark Paper Paintings, Mexican Majolica pottery, Mata Ortiz Pottery. Native American Jewelry and Crosses, Painted Tin Hearts, La Catrina, Rustic Mexican Furniture and many other things.
The La Catrina welcomes all visitors. Come on by and browse a little at the Market Place.
