Our retail store closed on Sept 2, 2019.
OUR WHOLESALE, CUSTOM ORDERS & ONLINE STORE (specializing mostly on decorations) WILL CONTINUE. You may order online, by phone or email & pickup in San Francisco's Mission district. Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control, a proposal to turn Casa Bonampak into a non profit that would keep our retail store open did not align, though it was not for a lack of good will on all parties.
Given the current climate of gentrification in the Mission District, closing a landmark cultural 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.
GRACIAS to 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."
