  • Hide Paintings - religious images painted on deer or elk hide
  • Straw Appliqué - crosses, chests and boxes decorated with applied straw
  • Textiles - hand-woven on looms using handspun yarns
  • Furniture - usually made from pine using mortise and tenon joints

  • Tinwork - decorative and utilitarian objects of cut and punched tin
  • Ironwork - tools, fastenings, and household objects forged from iron
  • Precious Metals - silver or gold jewelry, utilitarian and devotional objects
  • Pottery - hand-sculpted bowls, pots, and other ware made from micaceous clay

  • Basketry - baskets handwoven from red and brown river willow
Make sure you get there early for the best selection!

Josh's BBQ

We just got takeout from, Josh's Barbecue, Santa Fe's newest BBQ restaurant. It's located on the south side of town next to the Regal new movie theater and Lowes. Have to say that we were very impressed. We sampled the brisket, smoked turkey, sausage, and ribs. They were all very good, as was the health serving of sauce that was included. Santa Fe has never had much of a BBQ presence, but that is starting to change. Now we have Josh's and the Whole Hog Cafe. Let's hope the Josh is able to get the traffic through his place so he can keep serving up smoky goodness!

New Listing: 25 Acre Horse or Estate Property

I have just listed a piece of amazing property! This listing presents are opportunity for a lucky person to own one of the last remaining large parcels of land close to Santa Fe. This fantastic piece of property offers panoramic mountain views and wide open spaces making the nicely treed lot a perfect setting for your horse or estate property. There are two excellent building sites, one a bit more exposed and the other more sheltered. A shared well is in place, and there is a strong possibility that the lot can be split into two 12.5 acre tracts.

Also, like with all of my listings, a web site for the property was professionally built, and is available at
