Jackalope

Jackalope

You won’t find museum-quality goods at Jackalope, which sprawls over six acres on Cerrillos Road, a commercial artery that extends from downtown Santa Fe to outlying neighborhoods; but it is a trip in both senses of the word. The visitor is greeted by hundreds of huge, high-fired, high-color pots. Beyond is a building full of mostly inexpensive Latin American and Asian textiles, pottery, hardware, clothing, CDs, rugs, linens and tchotchkes. Head out the back door for antique and vintage garden accoutrements, open-air booth after booth of antiques, jewelry and crafts, and a building full of Asian furniture. As you should everywhere in this city, wear a hat to protect yourself from the sun, and take your time. If you shop at the pace at which Santa Fe runs, or rather, ambles, you may be lucky enough to stay there for the rest of your life.
