Wow, This place has the be the worst in the city for bad attitude and rudeness. I would even call it racist! They must not like americans (gringos) and I mean it. You sensed it! Totally rude response from employees when asked anything about their products. I took a look around and left. THey do NOT deserve even a dollar... More

I was excited to stop at Saddleblankets and I wanted to bring back a Mexican blanket or rug to remember my trip to this beautiful region. I was disappointed to find row after row of Walmart quality imports from India and China. The prices were great but the quality not so much. Much of the turquoise necklaces and earings were... More

Fun place, it is a shopping store---like a museum with 2 separate buildings. Has a large assortment of Western,Native American and Mexican items. All Native American items are however MADE IN MEXICO and they say so on a "small" sign. Knicknacks, rugs, pottery, furniture, T-shirts,jewlery,.....a wide assortment

This was an interesting place to go see. I didn't find the prices to be that great of a deal. However if you like the western decor in your home this is the place to go. The furniture is beautiful and well made, I got several smaller unique items as souvenirs. They will also ship anywhere if you buy bigger... More

In all honesty, the prices are a bit high, the staff a little too uninterested in actually helping you find anything in their store, and they do NOT have adult boots (so be forewarned). The blankets are fairly reasonably priced, but everything else seems a bit excessive. The jewelry was a good deal but it was a huge mark-down from... More

I noticed last week when I was there that just about everything I picked up was MADE IN INDIA. Hello? I'm a few miles from Mexico and the Mexican Blankets are Made In... More

El Paso Saddleblanket is a bit of a mixed bag. The warehouse store is large and they do have an awful lot of stuff, even using a satellite warehouse (which actually has some better stuff). Much of it looks like cheap imports from Mexico, although very little of it would I categorize as "unique." Also, given that much is imported... More
