Seek treasure in Placitas

By Nancy Wood Taber

We love pub crawls and arts crawls, and on Nov. 23 and 24 in Placitas, they’re having what could be described as a holiday shopping crawl. It’s the annual Placitas Holiday Sale, a popular 32-year-old tradition. The event showcases 80 vendors at three different locations in Placitas—the Anasazi Fields Winery (26 Camino de los Pueblitos), the Big Tent east of Las Placitas Presbyterian Church (7 Paseo De San Antonio) and Placitas Elementary School (5 Calle del Carbon). On Saturday from 10am to 5pm and Sunday from 10am to 4:30pm, go from one to the other and soak in pure artistry in countless, soul-moving forms. Metal sculpture, wooden furniture, solar plate etchings, gourd art, prisms, antler jewelry, even hand-painted drums. (There’s no danger that your relatives will end up with two of whatever you give them.) And if you stop by the fundraising table to help some worthy causes, no one can accuse your heart of being two sizes too small. For more info, go to placitasholidaysale.com.
