What a fun way to spend an afternoon - most shops don't open until about 11:00. Unique selection of shops, galleries and eateries.

We drive down to Taos a few times/year & love visiting the plaza & surrounding area when there. One of my favorite shops is located about 1/2 block off the SE corner of the plaza...it's called Taos Home.
