this is my favorite place to shop for southwestern and native designed jewelry. Reasonable prices and a tremendous variety of jewelry to choose from. Also a good selection of southwestern trinkets, novelties, toys, and fireworks.

If you’re tired and weary from too many miles on I-10, do yourself a favor and rest a spell here. It’s your typical highway touristy place, with the standard fare, but the people are very nice and they do have a great selection of items,...More

This was entertaining for me--a great short rest stop. The folks are friendly! It's easy to get back on the highway. There is a diverse mix of touristy and better stuff for sale. This isn't going to be fun at all for most very serious-minded...More

For something to do to break up a long drive across New Mexico, on Route 10, this is a nice "Trading Post" with clean bathrooms, friendly staff, nice turquoise jewelry, and more interesting stuff than you can imagine. Fun place to stop
