The other day at work I got to talking to a co-worker and she mentioned these little cabinet things that sound really interesting, but I've never come across one (that I know of). |
She said it's a small wooden cabinet, maybe like a double-doored medicine cabinet, but smaller. Not very deep. Inside, she said there were little cubes or whatever with skeletons in them in various situations. For example, one little cube would have 2 skeletons dancing, another would have 2 sitting at a table having drinks or something. The cabinets are painted in really bright colors and various designs. I have an image in my head that it might resemble a wooden advent calendar of sorts, but I could be waaay off (and it's NOT an advent calendar, according to her).
Co-worker mentioned that she saw them in all the little Mexican shops where she grew up in San Antonio, and while they were more popular around November 1st for Day of the Dead, they were available year round. I grew up in Los Angeles and have never seen one, so I don't know if this is a regional thing or something?
Does this sound familiar to anyone here? I'm going to post this in whatwasthatone too, but maybe someone here knows?
*I've also tried some googling, but whatever words I'm stringing together just aren't cutting it.
