**With sadness I share that our retail store on Valencia street will be closing at the end of January**
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 business, 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.
Enjoy our last weeks as the store will be liquidating a lot of inventory of unique treasures at great prices.
Muchas Gracias for all the magic & memories!

"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."
