Another one of my favorite local businesses quietly closed down on Feb. 15 – Las Manos Magicas. Located at the corner of South First and Live Oak, this shop that sold Mexican folk art should and will be missed. The owner told me, on the last day it was open, that the house was going to be moved and a new shopping complex was going to be opened. The shop is going online (the URL is www.talaveratilesonline.com
), which is great but still sad to see another local business exit like this.
