"Indian Super Market"

With this, my first posting of the new year 2012, it was only natural to look back over the past year and reminisce on my annual trek through Santa Fe, NM. And certainly one of the most colorful and interesting sights of the trip was a stroll through the downtown square where Native Americans display their handcrafted items ranging from sterling silver Bolo Ties to Turquoise jewelry of every description. If you're ever stymied for a memento of your trip to The Land of Enchantment, make this a primary stop on your agenda. You'll neither be disappointed, nor will you leave empty handed.

    beautiful photo! I go to Santa Fe once or twice a year for medical conferences. The Portal System, as shown in your a great place to meet Native American artists! I've met some wonderful bolo tie makers there, and have had a few made for me. Some of these artists are even "good enough" to exhibit at the Heard Museum in Phoenix, AZ. The Portal is the cheapest place in the money-grubbing city of Santa Fe - to buy all sorts of silver jewelry. Cannot be beat for honesty and prices.
