"Beware of the "Sale" signs in the Plaza area shops" Santa Fe Tourist Trap Tip by katezr

Santa Fe Tourist Traps: 10 reviews and 2 photos

A lot of those "Final Sale!' or big sale promos never leave the gallery/shop's window, they are there to get your attention with the catchy 50, 70% off sales so you think you get a great deal but the truth is, their prices are so inflated that the price after the sale remains way too high anyway.

Fun Alternatives: Avoid shopping in the Plaza for art, jewelry and clothing, and check out shops and art galleries elsewhere in town. On the historic Canyon Road with galleries back to back, there's a lot of poor art selling at super high prices... There's a lot of good stuff, too, but you may be able to do better if you visit galleries "off the beaten path" first.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
