Navajo Market

On the plaza in downtown Santa Fe is the old Navajo Market. We remember this market from our last time in Santa Fe in 1966. It has not changed except for the prices. Last time we were here we could not afford to buy anything so this time I decided I needed a small Navajo pot. There were many to choose from and I finally settled on one by Dorela Tosa, a friendly, talented Navajo artist from  Jemez Pueblo. It was not hugely expensive but very nicely done and much cheaper than it would have been in one of the tourist shops in town where we briefly considered a nice vertically loomed Navajo Rug until I saw the $7,500 price tag and stopped considering.

Here is the Navajo Market:
