With all of the advertising that this store does, you'd think that they had a real lock on the southwestern market. Not so. If you are shopping online, there is no way to tell if the items are locally made as opposed to India or Pakistan. A store this close to Mexico should be able to import from Sonora or... More

The Saddle blanket has Western and Native American style items for very reasonable prices. If you are wanting to do some shopping this is a great place to start, but only if this is your style. They have a huge stock of interesting decorator items. I wanted a few items to give to friends as a memento from my trip... More

This is a great place to visit if you are in El Paso and into South Western art and furniture. You can buy saddle blankets, jewelry, and even South West themed coffins. This place has a little of everything. Also on several weekends a month they offer pet adoptions. Overall, it is nice shop, very large, with a friendly staff.

I have been planning my visit for over a year and it did not disappoint. Lots of stuff to see they say you get it at a wholesale price, but beware prices aren't that cheap. Some stuff you can drive 20 mins over the bridge and get it for WAY less more than there asking. There lots to see lots... More

When you first walk in, you think "WOW", this is great. Most of the people working there will offer to help you. However, look closer & you will find mostly ho-hum imitations from unexpected places (like China) of questionable quality at reasonable (but easily beatable) prices. Beware of the overweight, older cowboy over in leather goods... when asked, he told... More

I was wavering between a "Very Good" and "Excellent" ranking and I decided that with the addition of the EXPO center that this store is indeed deserving of an "Excellent" rating. We started visiting this store 20 years ago when it was in the downtown location. I was stationed at Fort Bliss and everytime family or friends came to town... More

Sadly, as of this writing it's still not advisable to cross the border, but here you can find many of those types of items...some deals, but not as cheap as if we could cross the border. Excellent Customer Service. My sister bought a LOT of dishes and had them shipped up north...then the next day insisted we go back to... More

If you love turquoise, anything hand made, original, "Mexican-style" this is the pace. They have so much its amazing, its not cheap, but mostly affordable (coming from a cdn standpoint) lots of parking friendly staff, just bring your wallet. Cant wait to go back

Cool place for shopping or to just look around. Great for gifts and knick knacks. Many cool rugs if looking for a new rug. Something for everyone in the family.
