Happy first birthday, Genuine Southwest Art & Gifts. The little shop located on the east side of Old Town (1919 Old Town NW) is crammed to the gills with gifts, décor and artwork direct from the hands of nuevomexicanos. Whether you’re in the market for hand-punched tinwork mirrors, miniature glass chile ristras or natural stone necklaces, you can’t walk two feet without running into it at GSAG. To celebrate their first anniversary, the shop’s offering 10 percent off total purchases during their weekend reception on Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 6 (9am to 9pm) and Sept. 7 (9am to 6pm). Various local artisans are joining the festivities in person, including tin artist Michael Worthen and ceramicist Andrea Ponzini. More info’s on the shop’s Facebook page, or call Jennifer Spradlin at 243-1410. With live music and a free drawing for Backstreet Grill gift certificates or a lovely framed photo of the Sandia Mountains by Val Isenhower, this may be the perfect weekend to shove some tourists aside and indulge in some Old Town retail therapy of your own.
