Anna and I had to go to Santa Fe the other day and decided to stop by a great antique store called The House of Old Things on our way. This is a wonderful old home, originally a very old adobe, that was added onto in the 60s. The addition was done beautifully with original materials, put together in a contemporary design. Its owner was an architect and the effect is magnificent.
The couple who lived in the house are gone now and their relatives have been selling their various collections from the house itself. Anna has been frequenting the place for years and says that there used to be even more treasures than are available there now.
It is an amazing place filled with surprising things. Any of you in the area, or those visiting the High Road, owe yourselves the treat of stopping by—if you love old things, that is.
