Art, Jewelry and Crafts by Renowned Native American and Southwestern Artists Showcased in Old Town, September 20-22
Celebrating the colorful cultures of Native Americans and the American Southwest, Bazaar del Mundo’s annual Santa Fe Marketplace returns to Old Town, Friday through Sunday, September 20-22.
Transformed into a vibrant outdoor marketplace, Bazaar del Mundo (located at 4133 Taylor Street in Old Town) will overflow with exquisite collections of authentic Native American jewelry, art, crafts and décor from Navajo, Cherokee, Hopi, Pima, Isleta Pueblo and Santo Domingo Pueblo tribe members, along with other noted Southwestern artists demonstrating and selling their goods.
Art lovers and boho-inspired fashionistas will enjoy rare and stunning collections of sterling silver and multi-stone inlaid jewelry made with authentic turquoise, coral and other exotic stones, hand-woven Zapotec pillows and rugs, leather accessories, fetishes, storytellers, Pendleton blankets and more.
Returning to this year’s festival, pawn trader Art Quintana will appraise visitors’ fine Indian jewelry and family heirlooms (up to two pieces each). With 30 years in the Native American jewelry business, Quintana’s collection of traditional and contemporary necklaces, bracelets, rings, bolo ties, concho belts, earrings, beadwork and more, offers a treasure trove of items he has discovered in pawn shops throughout the Southwest.
Guests will also enjoy daily musical entertainment and feast on mouth-watering Mexican cuisine for sale at the otherwise free event, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
