6 days in NM: day 4 - Indian Market
Coincidentally, we were in town for Indian Market, which was an amazing experience - artists and craftspeople from all different tribes, selling beautiful pottery, blankets, paintings, carvings, beadwork, and so forth. The sun was brutal, but we persevered and wandered around for a few hours, nourished by our Potrillos breakfast, as well as a bag of delicious, fresh-out-of-the-fryer doughnuts.
I bought a few things - a retablo, a pottery bird, a present - and decided that of the pottery traditions, I like the Acoma the most. Unfortunately, the two pieces I liked the most were $2800 and $7000, so I decided to pass this time around.
Another future purchase, somewhere down the road, could be a nice ride like this one.
