Santa Fe Indian Market 2016

If you have never been to Santa Fe Indian Market start to plan now for 2017. I got an email the other day from a long time friend in Austin. It went something like this, “Murray and I will be in Santa Fe the 3rd week of August.” (It sounded good so far) Then she said, “ Will you find us a cute little one bedroom on Canyon Road to rent for a week?” I answered back, “You are kidding right or did your mean 2017?”  Indian Market is arguably the busiest week inSanta Fe. Vendors and buyers are here way in advance with there huge trucks parked everywhere. Santa Fe is a small town and every year I am amazed at how many people we can pack into to town. People come from all over the world I am told, as witnessed by the their jets parked at our airport and the license plates from everywhere. The photo that you see here (Jackie Bread is bead work photo goes here) is bead work. The artist is Jackie Bread. Really amazing to me! What do you say? Indian Market is so spectacular it’s hard to put it into words. Not only is there The Swaia Indian Market but here are the other events and shows being held at the same time.  Mean while if you are in real estate please contact me…carol@carolallen.com505-690-0233 Aug. 11-14 Objects of Art, Santa Fe Aug. 11, 6 - 9 pm: opening night gala The new, the old, the unique and the unexpected.
