Holy Nichos Otra Vez!  

Lost something, never to be found again?  Pray to Saint Anthony.

Wishing you were wittier / funnier / more god damn hilarious than you already are?  Pray to Saint Genesius of Rome.

Want (read NEED) more beer in your life?  Pray to St Arnold.

Yes, we have a workshop to cater to everyone’ needs and prayers - introducing Maria Flores from “Say Hola” who will be helping you create your very own Nicho!  Pick a Patron Saint and create a Nicho to take pride of place in your home to honour and to cherish.  Using an array of traditional and pop culture mixed media, Maria will guide you through this ancient ritual guaranteed to be life improving… well, depending on your Saint… St Arnold could have a lot to answer for …
