January smoke signals!

IMG_1130We had a wonderful Holiday season here at the trading post .Our guests enjoyed mulled cider and the famous biscocittos of northern New Mexico sitting by our adobe fireplace.

Now that the festivities are over, the kids back in school, and winter is upon us,we are turning our attention back to our art:  Painting, beading moccasins, and designing new jewelry, so that by springtime there is a new rich, creative offering for our visitors.

The trading post will be open by appointment from January through March, so please just give us a call if you’d like to stop by.  Our regular hours will be suspended until Spring comes!  We hope you have a warm and fulfilling winter!
