I want to make a few crafts with Day of the dead stuff. Where can I find the stuff for it?

Look at any of the "Botanicas" around town. I'm not sure where they are any more, since we've moved out of the city, almost 20 yrs. ago. They used to, and still might have a really cool shop on Alamo, near King William. Good luck, and have fun. Viva Dios De La Muertos !

Here's a volunteer opportunity for you to make crafts, even though that's not what ya asked for. The UTSA downtown campus is beautiful, though, and you may get some ideas for your own crafts!

If you're talking about the store on the corner of S. Alamo and Beauregard (near Mad Hatter's), I'm pretty sure it's closed. Last time I walked by it was a hair salon I think. That store had been there forever, I was pretty surprised to see it gone

Yes. It closed last year.

What a shame! that was such a great little shop/gallery. Last time I was there, they had an altar made by ZZ Top.

Carlita, you might want to check out Market Square, and the new Museo Alameda de Smithsonia. I remember a Botanica on Hildebrand/West Ave., area. Look up Papa Jim's, on the South Side. Heck, the phone book might even have "Botanicas" listed.

Yes, Papa Jim's is on S. Flores.

Carlitasway.......I think this is the closest one to our side of town:
Botanica La Esperanza
4438 Culebra Rd # 5
San Antonio, TX 78228
(210) 433-6839

Just get on Culebra and go inside the loop--should be just past Callaghan.

I think there is a store in the Blue Star Art Brewery group that has a lot of that stuff.

There is also a store at the corner of Main & Ashby near SAC. Can't remember the name of the store but it's a two story antebellum style house on the corner chock full of fiesta stuff, day of the dead stuff, and things you typically find in border towns. It's a little bit touristy but much less so than Market Square (better prices, too).

There's also a store on S. Alamo just before the Presa/St Mary's corner if you're heading south. Two shops actually, right next to La Frite, they have a lot of other artsy nick-nacks, so not as focused on Day of the Dead stuff as the other shop was, but they do have some things.
