Interior View -  Doodlet’s, Santa Fe, American West


Stuffed wall to wall with whimsical gifts, toys and gadgets, Doodlet’s is pure Santa Fe. A downtown fixture since 1955 – the elderly owner, Theo Raven, is one of the town’s most beloved characters – the spacious shop carries everything from children’s books and old-fashioned candy to New Mexico folk art and Mexican-inspired furniture.

Interior View -  Keshi, Santa Fe, American West


The Zuni of New Mexico, one of nineteen Pueblo tribes, are famous for their pottery, jewelry and fetishes. The venerable Keshi boutique (named after the traditional greeting of the Zuni people) specializes in the latter: small carved animal fetishes that are often referred to as good-luck charms but are, in fact, to be carried as a reminder of our connection to nature. The carved fetishes sold at this co-op are made in a variety of materials, including stone, marble, antler and serpentine. Many are adorned with turquoise, coral or mother of pearl. Handmade and truly Santa Fe, they’re authentic mementos.

Morning Star Gallery

If you’re interested in Native American art – antique and contemporary – the Morning Star Gallery should top your list of places to visit. Its display shelves are lined with museum-quality items, from pottery and baskets to fashion and jewelry, and the staff is well informed and happy to share stories about the exquisite handicrafts. You can always find interesting smaller pieces, such as a Sioux beaded baby bonnet – dating from 1880 and made with incredible skill and care.

Merchandise at Nathalie, Santa Fe, American West


This fashion and home-furnishings boutique on Canyon Road is a must for aspiring cowboys and Wild West aficionados. The whimsical shop, well-edited by Nathalie Kent (a former accessories editor at Vogue), carries everything from leather revolver holsters to thick leather belts with massive buckles; mixed in are real (and wearable) finds like tulle-layered party frocks, chic prairie shirts and coats embellished with beads. Of course, you can also order custom-made cowboy boots in a variety of skins.

Todos Santos Chocolates

Hidden in the courtyard that also holds La Casa Sena, this tiny shop sells a variety of handcrafted chocolates that are as beautiful as they are delicious. Owner and self-taught chocolatier Hayward Simoneaux presides over such flavor combinations as spicy red chile with dark chocolate and silky dark chocolate with caramel and sea salt. He works with a paper artist on the packaging, so these tasty nibbles are a wonderful gift to bring home. The store also stocks other chocolate (deemed worthy enough) from around the world, as well as more whimsical Santa Fe products, including the artsy renditions of Pez dispensers by local folk artist Steve White.
