Okay, let’s talk about today’s guest. I’m speaking with Alana Rivero, the owner of Mercadillo Vintage in Cancún, Mexico for the last eleven years. She grew up going to flea markets and yard sales throughout Cancún with her mother, and today we’re going to hear the story of how she turned to vintage for her career, what the second-hand resale space is like in Cancun, and more.
I think you’re gonna love it. Thanks for listening, let’s dive right in!
