Tianguis

My favorite things often have a story behind them and are usually handmade or discovered at a flea market.

Is the stampede afoot?  While running errands and walking about town yesterday I heard three groups of Americans talking about real estate:  how many square feet one could get for a price and how someone’s friend sold “her place” in Sausalito and bought “a place” in x and y and San Miguel. Could all this be due to the fact that San Miguel is the world’s number one city?

I quelled that thought by going to the Tuesday Market for the first time, where there was a scarcity of people from north of the border and a multitude of vendors.  Others have written in great detail about the San Miguel tianguis, so I needn’t bother except to say, like the t shirts of Super Bowl Losers that find their way to Africa and put seamstresses out of work, there seems to be a plethora of Hollister and Abercrombie wear for sale in San Miguel.
