UPDATE April 25, 2019:
We are exploring a last minute proposal to keep Casa Bonampak retail store open & turn it into a non profit that provides job training for Latino youth in the community as well as expands our cultural classes. This is not a finished project so we are taking it unfolding events week by week so our future still remains up in the air at the moment. In the mean time, come celebrate with us Sat May 4th for San Francisco Cinco de Mayo on Valencia street out front Sat May 4th 10-6 pm. !Que Viva Mexico Cabr...!
Jan 5, 2019: We are sad to announce the closing of our retail store after 23 years- we will continue our online & wholesale departments. Given the current climate of gentrification in the Mission District, closing a legacy store at a great location & with a wonderful landlord was an extremely difficult decision that came from a need for a personal change in lifestyle. Casa Bonampak has always functioned as more than just a store, it has also been part cultural & community center and I am unable to dedicate the complete attention & effort that it requires as my spirit calls to simplify & spend more time w/ familia and unfortunately the right energy to continue the cultural work did not manifest.
We thank the community for all the years of support & friendships and look forward to continuing our wholesale & online departments, as well as continuing our work with Latin culture in other creative ways.
Muchas Gracias for all the magia & memorias!

"Casa Bonampak is a store in the Mission district of San Francisco. It was so prettily decorated for the Dia de los Muertos celebration that I instantly thought that the kind of art that happens here comes from a more genuine place than I lot I have seen in modern art galleries around the world.|
Because this is very specific to the subculture and the involvement of the transient citizens and artists in San Francisco. None of this kind of blending of the worlds happens anywhere else in the world."
