Cutting out the Middleman

CUANAJO, Michoacan--We had been on the hunt for some rustic furniture for months, and on a recent trip to Michoacan we decided to take a detour to a small town where we were told had great furniture that was distributed throughout the country. From the city of Patzcuaro, we followed a taxi to a dirt road with a banner (not a sign) that said Cuanajo. The taxi driver told us to keep going, as he returned to the city. We had to stop for a few minutes along the bumpy road to give a slow cow the chance to move over. When the road came to an end, we saw gray concrete warehouses filled with colorful furniture. The perfect kitchen table was there waiting for us. Sometimes we find the best things in the most unexpected places.
