Albuquerque Old Town

I'm going to take a little breather from the usual quilting programing to bring you a tourism feature; though if you're a local, it may be even more beneficial. Today I'm sharing an illustrated guide to Old Town, a cultural and shopping district great for locals and visitors alike. 

My family and I enjoyed lunch at High Noon, an upscale place with classic and area-specific specialities. We tried the Shrimp Pappardelle, Lobster Bisque, and a chicken dish. All were tasty.

Then I did a bit of shopping at San Pasquals, which I initially took for a furniture store. However, it was a wondrous shop with numerous unique specialty items. Aren't these measuring spoons too pretty?

I adored these fuzzy birds.

Then I sighted these fantastic bed sheets. Wouldn't this set be great for a kid who loves Wonder?

Or this set for a dinosaur-enthusiast? Personally, I decided on a mermaid set for my daughter.

I picked up a pale blue set of these favorite candles of mine.
They had aprons.

And Kitchenwares.

These were the most adorable socks.

I thought these clips would be adorable hang up a mini quilt or a top for photographing.

Or the absurdly charming lamas.

Have you been to Albuquerque? If so, have you checked out Old Town?

  1. Thank you for this guide! I am going to send it to my Dad. He wants to surprise my Mom with a trip later this year for your Balloon Festival.

  2. I've been there twice, last time was for the Balloon Fiesta in October. So much fun! I love Old Town. Another great find, aside from all the wonderful quilt stores was Fresh Bistro, 7319 4th st. NW. Lives up to it's name, really good fresh food. Aparently once a month there is a dinner in a bus (on the premises, with good wine as well. HIghly recommend.
