The owner says the masks are $8 to $10, depending on style. The masks are embroidered and feature either the “Maria Doll” or Aztec calendar.

While retail stores are able to reopen under the state’s official guidance, Gomez-Maldonado is electing not to. She says the masks will be shipped or delivered to surrounding areas. To order, she asks customers to take a screenshot of an item they are interested in and send the store a message on Facebook. She will then reply to the inquiries with availability.

Gomez-Maldonado said she expects to also have Frida Kahlo-themed face coverings as well.

Karolina’s Antiques, another local business, is also selling serape face coverings for $15.

The city and county’s current “Stay Home, Work Safe” orders, which is in effect until May 19, requires residents 10 and older to wear a face covering in public places where it is difficult to maintain 6 feet of social distancing.
