Santa Fe’s a city of unique boutiques. Looking for that perfect pair of hand-tooled cowboy boots, silver concho belt or that drop-dead squash blossom necklace? You’ve come to the right place. Cowboys and Indians meet in Santa Fe where Pueblo people lived over 1,000 years ago and cattle ranches showed up centuries later. The downtown Plaza area, the trendy Railyard District, Guadalupe Street and artsy Canyon Road all have shops and galleries where you can literally shop ‘til you drop. Santa Fe excels in Native American art and artifacts, fine art, wearable art, home décor, tribal art and imports from around the world. The fabulous Seret and Sons, loaded with treasures from the Silk Road and beyond, attracts people so famous the shop has to sign a confidentiality agreement before they show up. On the other end is the fun Jackalope with its acres of world imports or the Traveler’s Market, part museum-quality artifacts, part foreign bazaar. Santa Fe marches on its stomach. There are great food shops waiting to be discovered. Explore the Santa Fe Farmers Market or check out the array of specialty shops for chocolate, wine, gourmet vinegars, spices, foreign comestibles and and distinctly New Mexican ones.
