It's hard to believe that it has been 6 years since we first got the keys to our little storefront in Williamsburg, Brooklyn! So much has changed and we are very proud of the growth we have achieved, thanks in no small part to our cherished clients who have understood and supported our purpose. Our goal has been and remains to bring our customers hand made and highly selected items of clothing, jewelry, and home decor from artisans in Mexico and beyond. But apart from that it has been a wonderfully rewarding process of forging relationships, even great friendships with our community of producers and clients alike. We feel grateful to have made it over the 5 year hump - and in the difficult economic times experienced since 2007, this seems like even more of a feat. While there is still much to do ahead - we are reveling in this moment and want share our appreciation.
Today we arrive at a new and exciting juncture where we launch a new phase of the business. We recently completed a "technological upgrade" on our day to day operations. Now we have a nifty point of sale and inventory system, implemented with the end goal of bringing more of the store's items on-line. Our new streamlined website huitzilli.com is live as of this weekend, and while the uploading of inventory is a work-in-progress, we're happy to say that many items from our collection are available for sale now - and that will continue to grow. These improvements, which includes the addition of a gift registry and wish-list function, will help you find relevant store info and news and make shopping and online purchases easier. We will be actively posting updates and focused articles on the collection, crafts, designers, and artisans we showcase on our blog.
