A Day in Santa Fe-Market and Dinner








A different kind of flea market, but nevertheless, a market where one could spend an entire afternoon, without leaving the USA. Something by the name of "Jackalope."....hummm. I've seen pictures on postcards of these animals and they are pretty darn frightful. Someone had a wild imagination when putting the photos together to create such a pet! Anyway, here are a few of my finds of the day. There is an amazing array of items from all over the world on display in several buildings and also outside. Oh yes, the day ended at the Santa Fe Hilton, the Pinon Grill.......for dinner! Put this on your list of places to visit sometime!

I have never seen so many artists gathered in one town-this is an incredible area for creative buying-there is something for everyone!Wonderful eating establishments as well!

I lived in Pecos next t Santa fe for a few years. It is a delightful town! Colorful artist certainly, fantastic food! Best of all was the sense of calm I found there. Thank you for the walk down memory lane.

I love Santa Fe! I was first there many years ago with a geology club. It was still quite small with the Native Americans sitting on the sidewalks selling their wares.
We went back about 15 years ago - what a change but I loved it. Sigh....
