Papel o Plastico?
Picante's got both! This charming store in Arizona's oldest and most Mexican shopping plaza, Broadway Village, has papel picado for your Day of the Dead celebration, or any other festivities.
Papel picado means cut paper. Strings of papel picado flags are used to announce special events in Mexico.
As residents of a former Mexican outpost, Tucsonans can and should brighten their celebrations with papel picado.
Picante is a delightful store with decorative items, jewelry and clothing from Mexico. It's a great place to buy a Southwestern flavored gift.
