Who wouldn't want to walk through this door? And when you do...MAGIC.

In addition to Laurie's gorgeous jewelry, her imaginative and whimsical shop is filled with other handmade and unique delights - scarves, accessories and ephemera galore - charming Santos, crowns, Buddhas, Milagros and vintage finds. Every surface and wall is arranged enticingly and the only thing missing is a white rabbit and a table set for tea...

Morocco is a regal, elegant country holding sway in Northwest Africa with gorgeous coastlines on both the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. It is filled to the brim with history, cultural exploration and colorful adventures. And if you want to experience a bit of Morocco here in Santa Fe, meander into SANTA KILIM, a gorgeous and lushly-textured store along Canyon Road. You'll find vibrant kilims and carpets, richly carved and exotic furniture, stunning accessories and enough visual delights from all over the world to keep you coming back for more.
