If you find yourself dying to get out of the Dallas heat this weekend (supposed to be 102) head to Santa Fe for the Santa Fe International Folk Art Market. It is the largest of it’s kind in the world, 147 master artists from 45 countries around the world will show their work, and preserve the traditions of their countries. Christine Allison and I will be there admiring (and probably) buying glazed pottery from Mexico, embroidered scarves from Pakistan, woven baskets from Rwanda, and textiles from Afghanistan. Not only can you buy unique items for your home and body at amazing prices, but 90% the proceeds go back to these villages to help them develop economic stability. This is such a win-win situation, you should already be booking your flight.
