Shopping the summer ethnic markets of Santa Fe

If you are a collector or just want to decorate your home or yourself with authentic ethnic pieces, summer is the time to visit Santa Fe. In just two days we saw such marvels as Native carved ivory from Nome, Alaska, Saltillo Mexican blankets, vintage Bakelite jewelry, vintage Sterling jewelry from Taxco and amazing indescribable antiques from around the world. When shopping for ethnic art, jewelry and decorator items in Santa Fe, schedule your trip during one of the major shows. Or, if you are a real bargain hunter and know what you are looking for head south to the Flea at the Downs. You’ll never know what you’ll find.
