Huge place with lots of mexican imported decor

Can anyone help me with the name of the huge place that has lots and lots of mexican imports, from huge outdoor pottery to rooms full of margarita glasses? It's near the edge of town coming in from Red River. We stopped there last year and had a blast because it reminded us of shopping in Coz & Puerto Morelos.

TB&B: I know you like to tout Taos, and I am glad you recommend Jackalope as well as Camino Real. Actually, I feel overwhelmed in Jackalope (although the one in Santa Fe does have nice clothing).

But I don't know why you say:

"Hate to be contrarian to the previous post, but Jackalope is a retail chain with multiple locations in the region" and "We would never have bought these things at a retail big box place like Jackalope ".

Huh?

In Santa Fe at least, Jackalope is hardly a big-box store.It is a large collection of small shops located with "gardens" around it, lots of outdoor space, and even prairie dog "villages."

Chain? Is 3 locations in USA a chain?

Regarding Jackalope, it's been there since the 70's & could be considered a Santa Fe institution, not big box. The guy started with wares from Mexico on the tailgate of his pickup no less.

I sent out some pottery suns for the holidays from Gamino in Taos. Next time I'll have to name-drop LOL!
