After finally getting time to go to, what I understood to be, an El Paso landmark I was met with Going Out Of Business signs. I was a little disappointed going in to what amounted to a 1/4 full warehouse. But after only a few minutes I realized that if all the items for sale were like these few remaining... More

So, here's the deal. I get that this is a "small business." I get that y'all want to spend holidays with family. But you know what? People travel during the summer, especially on summer WEEKENDS. So when you pass 1,863 El Paso Saddle Blanket billboard ads on your way into town, and when there are full page ads in every... More

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
