I was very disappointed with the Santa Fe Plaza. Most shops carried the same mediocre Native American items at inflated prices. Also the Native Americans who sold goods around the plaza had very poor quality tourist pieces. I was very underwhelmed.

We walked the Santa Fe Plaza all 4 days we were in town and everyday I saw something different that amazed me. From beautiful artsy entry doors, to stunning handcrafted sculptures and jewelry. I could spend 1,000's here. Well...I actually did! Enjoy! Fun for all!

For what? Native jewelry or clothes? Do you know what you want? Both items are available on the Plaza and in other places. Even WalMart has Native jewelry. And there is an outlet store center down by l-25! Why go to Santa... More
