In addition to the incredible food and breathtaking scenery, one notable aspect of our trip to Santa Fe was the shopping so I thought I would devote the final Santa Fe blog entry to sharing the purchases we made during our tour of The City Different.
My first purchase of the trip, which I made on the very first day, was this statement necklace made from vintage brass beads that I found at Blessings in the De Vargas Center.
And while we were at the De Vargas Center, we visited Traveler’s Market, where I found this phenomenal straw & leather zebra bag, which I proceeded to use for the entirety of our time in Santa Fe.
Another successful shopping excursion was our visit to Double Take, where we brought home a vintage piece of framed artwork, a set of ceramic soy sauce dishes, a couple of records (Pink Floyd’s The Wall and Lou Rawls’ Naturally)
As well as this vintage necklace that I am completely in love with
And what would a trip to Santa Fe be without a turquoise purchase? With the amount of turquoise available for sale in Santa Fe, I was expecting to find some great deals, but instead was quite surprised to find that it was not less expensive. (The same can be said for vintage tooled leather handbags). I was, however, able to find this lovely (and reasonably priced!) delicate turquoise bracelet on our final day.
We could not resist bringing home a couple of records from The Good Stuff, our favorite coffee & record shop, which I first mentioned here.
Finally, we wanted to bring something home for Elvis and we thankfully we found these amazing dog cookies from Teca Tu.
