Since 1974, Pachamama's purpose has been to provide its customers with the highest quality, most authentic, hand-made goods from the artisans of Latin America at the best prices possible. We represent our antique and vintage material honestly, and obtain those goods lawfully. In terms of new inventory, we buy as directly as we can from the people who make our goods, and pay them fairly.
Our store is a friendly place. We do not take ourselves too seriously. We want your shopping experience with us to be enjoyable--even if you don't buy a thing. Because many of the items we offer for sale are unfamiliar to our customers, we are happy to provide information about what we sell. Our staff is knowledgeable and helpful.
Some of the items we carry include:
- Milagros - Learn more about milagros
- Relicarios - Learn more about relicarios

We also offer contemporary handmade repousse milagros from Peru. These are usually rectangular, from 1-3 inches in diameter, made of a mix of silver and other metals in limited quantities by Peruvian metalsmiths. They are of a style popular in previous eras and depict a variety of subjects. The other types of milagros we carry include some contemporary ones cast in pot metal from Peru, Mexico, Guatemala, and elsewhere.
Our prices are as fair as possible to buyers. We don't bargain. We have a sale shelf, but virtually never do "sales" or markdowns. We are required by law to collect New Mexico's gross receipts tax if you purchase from us locally, even if you wish to have us ship your purchases out of state. Prices are FOB Corrales, NM.
