Closing Up Shop After 15 Years! - I would like to offer my heartfelt thanks to the many valued customers of Fenix de Todos Santos. After fifteen years, I've decided that it is finally time to retire and enjoy some leisure and will be closing the store. I have invited Frieda of galeria indigo to share my wonderful location. We will be phasing out the store inventory over the next few months until the building becomes hers entirely. If you haven't been in lately - please stop by! The gallery featuring the works of Ezra Katz, John Comer, Carlos Diaz Castro and many other talented artists combined with the colorful furniture and other treasures now on sale at the Fenix makes it a visual feast!

SPECIAL NOTE FOR CLIENTS WITH FENIX HANDBLOWN GLASS PATTERNS: All glassware is now at 20% off and we will soon be placing a "last chance" order at this special price. To "stock up" on your glass pattern while you still can, please place your order without delay! If you are in the states, not to worry, we'll hold your order for you until your return.

We welcome your visit and you will find terrific, well below-market pricing on all furniture, lead-free pottery, glassware, hand-carved retablos, jewelry, stoneware dishes and much, much more - IT ALL HAS TO GO! If you're in the states and have interest in any of these items, please contact me by e-mail and I will get right back to you. - Cindy Murray, cindyfenix [-at-] yahoo.com, 145-08-08

Comments, Questions and Answers

Insurance From U.S. - We have had an experience with Genworth Insurance, that we had purchased from the US last fall before our trip south. I had an accident with our vehicle and as a result of the process for claims, at the police station, attempting to work with Genworth, we purchased the next day car insurance from a local insurance carrier. There are several factors that were astounding in the process of working with them on the claim, plus some very surprising events at the police station that you may be unprepared for. I will post something in the Gazette, soon, but think you may be extremely sorry for not having a local agent with some insurance purchased in Mexico. If anyone would like to contact me, I would give more explanation, US cell 541-490-2574. - Peyt Turner, La Paz


Yoga Retreat - Does anyone know the name of or how to contact the yoga center that is south of Cerritos? - Susan Kees, susankees [-at-] yahoo.com, Pescadero
