Folk Art Market

I spent most of the day at the Santa Fe International Folk Art Market. It was really neat, and a little overwhelming. The idea is to get real, nice, traditional folk art and indiginous crafts from other countries – there are nearly 200 foreign artists there this year. For that to work, there needs to be a venue where thousands of people are willing to pay hundreds of dollars for various neat and “authentic” crafts. Hence, Santa Fe.
