Santa Fe is home to some fabulous shopping. On my trip last week I went to Double Take three times. Double Take is a giant two story shop carrying amazing second hand and vintage clothing, jewelry and furniture. I have never bought so many pieces for myself in one place. Ever. The prices range from bargain to over the top depending on what you're looking for. If you're ever visiting this is a MUST. Just make sure you have all afternoon to see everything.
This is one of the many cases of insane turquoise jewelry. A good squash blossom necklace can set you back two thousand dollars.
Where do you start with these silver cuffs? There's so many amazing choices.
I found several Afghani pieces from this case but wanted to buy everything. I asked if they had anything Egyptian and scored and Eye of Horus cuff and a hieroglyphic silk scarf.
The "Ranch" section of the store has hundreds of beautiful cowboy boots, fringe jackets, native garments and buck skin galore. I found an incredible deer skin fringe vest.
This is the Encore section of the store which has amazing classic vintage. They have a great selection of designer bags, beautiful furs, and oh do I love the poncho section. I found a beautiful silk kimono, tie-dye harem onesie, eyeball print open blouse and some lace up boots. My mom's at the register buying a Thai embroidered jacket in her new Pendleton coat.
I bought an embroidered vest from this rack of beautiful Guatemalan huipils.
I really wish this North Beach leather jacket was my size.
Can't wait to go back next time. My mother has a second home there so who wants to road trip?? Other fabulous stores to visit are Shalako (previously blogged), Rainbow Man, Native Jackets and Santa Fe Dry Goods.
