What will probably impress you most about Warpath Traders is the sheer volume of its inventory. Dozens of display cases contain literally thousand of items to choose from. The style of the necklaces, bracelets and rings is unquestionably Southwestern and Native American. The materials are mostly silver and turquoise, although polished stone is the material of choice for the carvers. There is a large selection of kachinas, ranging in size from six to twelve inches in height. The cordial staff will answer any question thoroughly and enthusiastically.
Situated behind the ancient church in Old Town, the Christmas Shop lays claim to being the Southwest's largest and best Christmas store. A whitewashed adobe gallery provides an elegant setting for a display of colorful and imaginative Nativity sets. There are numerous varieties of collector's glass; nutcrackers dressed up in modern attire, and Southwestern-themed ornaments. A life-sized desert Santa, looking a bit like Gabby Hayes, greets visitors at the door. It is open all year.
Peruvian Perfection is more affordable than its rival, Peruvian Connection, but the clothing is still 100% alpaca and handmade (not to mention still far from cheap!). Sweaters, cardigans, scarves, gloves, hats, shawls, coats, vests and jackets are available for both men and women, mostly in bright colors and unique patterns. The Peruvian-New Mexican couple who own and operate this family-run store design the clothing and travel to the Andes to forge personal relationships with knitters there. They assert ethical trade principles and have started a fund which directs a percentage of their online sales to the families in the communities where they operate. - Pip Lustgarten
If you can look beyond the decidedly unromantic name, you'll find to your pleasant surpise that Savon Cash and Carry Flowers can meet all your bouquet needs.

Most importantly, Savon maintains environmentally-sound business practices, recycling vases and purchasing from sustainable growers. There is an additional location in the Northeast heights at 1313 Eubank Boulevard Northeast. - Pip Lustgarten
