El Nicho 

Folk Art Gift Shop

Specializing in Hand-Crafted Folk Art

For over 30 years El Nicho Folk Art Gift Shop has been one of Santa Fe's most beloved gift shops. Specializing in hand-crafted Hispanic Colonial and Native American folk art, we feature folk art wood carvings from the legendary Ortega family, Southwestern jewelry at off-the-plaza prices, and highly collectible New Mexican and Native American crafts.  We buy directly from our artists, ensuring that all of our art is authentic and made available at excellent prices. That means more profits go directly the artist, positively impacting their economic well-being.  We invite you to explore our website and we look forward to welcoming you to our shop when you are in town!
