Best Shopping in Santa Fe
We think one of the most enjoyable activities when on vacation, especially in a city as vibrant of Santa Fe, is browsing through the many shops encountered along the way. Though there are large shopping centers here, the commonplace experience encountered at the modern day strip mall is not what you’ll find in Santa Fe. Instead, you’ll find a collection of local, independently owned shops populating our storefronts, each as unique and fascinating as their owners. We’re confident that you’ll find what you’re looking for, but we’re also pretty sure you’ll find things you didn’t even know you were looking for, including jewelry, clothing, hand tooled cowboy boots, handmade furniture, handwoven rugs, Native American pottery, a variety of art, home décor, specialty foods, books, and so much more. Two of Santa Fe’s most popular shopping destinations are the Santa Fe Plaza and the Railyard District. Canyon Road is also a great place to find numerous art galleries, jewelry, leather goods, imported gift items and even great restaurants to keep you fueled up.
One of Santa Fe’s best kept shopping secrets are the spectacular gift shops found at local museums. There are a total of 8 of these shops, all unique, and they carry everything from apparel, furnishings, jewelry, accessories, music, movies, and Native American art. Our favorite shops include those found at the Museum of International Folk Art, the New Mexico Museum of Art Shop, the shop at the New Mexico Museum of Indian Arts and Culture, the Speigelberg Shop at the New Mexico History Museum, and the shop at the Palace of the Governors. Though there are times where the shopping in Santa Fe can feel out of reach, there truly is something here for everyone. Just as Santa Fe is a Mecca for those with an eye for objects both elegant and unusual, so too is it a Mecca for those in search of great bargains and finds at the area’s many consignment shops. Our favorite consignment shops include Double Take, The Beat Goes On, Real Deal Collection, and Act 2.
