Get Lost In The Past At These 5 New Mexico Old Fashioned Trading Posts

Trading posts have been around longer than the State of New Mexico. Today, amid the touristy roadside attractions, some old-fashioned trading posts still exist. Though they have updated (a bit) with the times, these shops still sell traditional native goods, some even still taking items in trade. Offering a little of everything, authentic trading posts are well worth browsing. You can find work from emerging and established native artists, and treasures from the past.
