GrafixMats® are so artfully designed and intriguing, we've created a hanging hole in the back of each coaster.

The Back Story:

El Encanto

Originally known as El Paseo de El Encanto, “Promenade of Enchantment,” El Encanto International Marketplace was dedicated in Aug. 1933.  Strolling troubadours, magicians, puppeteers, and artists creating their wares were once a part of El Encanto.  Today there are gift & curio shops, and restaurants featuring Mexican and American food in the colorful marketplace, making it a favorite place to shop and dine in Avalon.

About the Artist: Jim Krogle, a graduate of Chouinard Art Institute, has enjoyed an extensive career as an American Illustrator. He now follows his true passion painting the beach and surf scene he grew up with.  Visit www.jimkrogle.com.
