Choose your Chair

Each pueblo in the Patzcuaro area specializes in a craft. Opopeo, just a few minutes away by car, specializes in making--yes--chairs. The town even has an annual Chair Fair. But you just get the chair. First, you order the chairs. Then you pick up the chairs. Next you take the chairs to be painted. And finally you cart the chairs home to enjoy. To finish our chairs, we used a young man and young woman in Patzcuaro who paint remarkable free-hand decorations. This pretty chair would brighten up any breakfast!
