"A Visit to Trader Walt's Flea"

Eric and I decided that we would get an early start to our Saturday in Santa Fe. We had breakfast first at Clafoutis French Bakery and Restaurant - two orders of Eggs Benedict with a box of lemon Madeleines to go. We then drove in the direction of the Railyard District, an area with upscale shops, a farmers' market and art galleries. Then we found our destination - Trader Walt's Flea Market. Once we stepped inside the large building, we knew at once that this would be a treasure hunter's paradise. Endless booths of jewelry, antiques, vintage Western wear, something for everybody. Our favorite vendor was Roberta's Jewelry Designs. The sign over her booth reads, "If you can't see it from the highway, why wear it?" Her famous gaudy necklaces are fashioned from turquoise, coral, sterling and semi-precious gem stones. Roberta clearly loves what she does and definitely lives up to her motto, "I do Gaudy Best!"
