One of the most affordable collectibles today is Mexican Tourist Pottery. It fits easily into the Shabby Chic niche of decorating. The examples we often find in Texas and the Southwest are a style of regional pottery called Tlaquepaque. We often come across a piece or two in garage and estate sales. Its' appealing to both Folk Art collectors and Shabby Chic decorators due to its' primitive, childlike renderings depicting Mexican rural life and plant and animal motifs.
