We shopped in historic Taos around the square, which was fine and the store clerks were nice enough. The day we were leaving town, we went to Taos Pueblo expecting a history lesson in the 1,000 + year old buildings. To my pleasant surprise, the Taos Indian people also have store fronts in the pueblo. We found many of the same Indian items (authentic jewelry, crafts, pottery, and art) that we found on the square. The items at the pueblo were being sold for a fraction of the cost that they were sold on the square. Of course, it costs money to get into Taos Pueblo, but the historic buildings and sites are worth the cost. The Indian people selling the items were very kind and talked to us about how things were made and the meaning in the art. Many of the people selling the items were also the same artisans that had made them. If you are looking for authentic Indian crafts, shop Taos Pueblo first!
