Year in Reveiw 2018

We know the new year has been in full swing for a full month, but we wanted to get back to our little area here and share what 2018 brought us and where we hope to go for 2019!

As always, I feel deeply indebted to all the people who walk in our store. Who look, who touch, who ask, who purchase, who take our postcard story and then who recommend. Our doors would have to close if you didn’t do just that…so Mil gracias!

What did 2018 bring you ask:

  • Tierra celebrated being open for 1 year as a brick and mortar store (that was so fun)!

  • Tierra hosted Mujeres con Identidad and heard the amazing musical stylings of Batala

  • Tierra hired our new Market Host, Nohely and we couldn’t be happier

  • Tierra traveled to Mexico City and brought you all with us!

  • We of course celebrated El Grito de Dolores with you all, 500 plus of you, to be exact!

  • We continued to participate in pop-ups throughout the city

  • We maintained our now 3-year relationship with our artisan families and expanded to more, including Jacqueline and her father from Puebla, Puebla.

  • Small business Saturday was filled with good food to show you our appreciation

In the midst that all was accomplished, it was also a very difficult year for me specifically.  In the process of stepping away to fully recover from health issues, Team Tierra, really picked up what I had to put down. 2018 reminded me that I much rather do this together with my Team and whoever is willing to be a part of Tierra, as clients or as partners.

We are excited about 2019! I find myself healthier and can’t wait to expand in different ways at a pace that will allow me and the team to enjoy this all so much more! We will start to introduce our new ideas and ventures soon. What we can share now is that it will involve your taste buds.

Our commitment to you is that Tierra will continue to responsibly bring Mexico a tu casa, with punches of color, levels of nostalgia and our biggest commitment, comercio justo.   

Les deseo un prospero ano!
