A beautifully common finding - women sitting together visiting whilst working on their craft that will then be sold at market or on the street. These women are most likely Quichua Indian, and the woman on the right is wearing the common everyday dress of this group of prevalent people in Quito. Each day they come in from rural parts of the country to sell their crafts or produce on the street.

Wow, what a remarkable glimpse of the culture. I love how the woman is wearing traditional clothing. That is a really nice look into an everyday conversation. I simply love it!

I love this. It could be timeless, except for the Tommy Hilfiger emblem in the window.

Thanks for looking everyone! Ruth, you're right - the Tommy Hilfiger gives away the timing of this photo, otherwise it too could be a timeless one. Not sure why you can only get your picture to post here...I can't even figure out how to get my own posted, so I am of no help!
