Located behind San Felipe de Neri Church, this delightful shop is five connected rooms filled with beautifully crafted gift items, all made by senior citizens. The non-profit Assistance League of Albuquerque operates the Blue Portal, which has generated over a million dollars for community programs since it opened in 1985. It is not charity, however, that prompts the visitor to buy, but the beauty and craftsmanship of the pottery, wood sculptures, quilts and other products on display. A warm and enthusiastic welcome from the volunteer sales associate is part of the package.
