Shop Amapola for Last Minute Gifts in Albuquerque
We all know folks who have their holiday shopping nicely wrapped up by March. So organized! So disgusting! Then there are those who buy thoughtfully throughout the year and finish by first frost. (Shifting their energy into holiday get – togethers and — cooking. In my home the less said about cooking the better …)
My favorite shopping experience took place on a Christmas Eve, no less. I had a short list of mall – available items and a small window of time. It was great! I found everything I needed and the various clerks and I were virtually alone.
You won’t be alone when you come to Amapola Gallery for your gift shopping. More importantly, what you’ll see will absolutely NOT be available at any mall!
We have unique, locally -made wonders, from the perfect card, jewelry piece, painting, wooden box or bowl, stone sculpture, woolen wearables, print, quilt for wall or bed, ceramics and glass both useful or “merely ” ornamental … It’s a huge list because our forty artist – members are hugely and endlessly creative.
This year we’re even open late on Christmas Eve for those truly last -minute impulses. Marvel at Old Town ‘s luminarias, get a bowl of steaming posole at Yay! Yogurt downstairs and come upstairs. You’ll be glad you did.
Open every day 10-5 (except Christmas and New Year ‘s Day) and eight pm on Christmas Eve.
After a lifetime batting words around like shuttlecocks in an endless game of badminton, it is a pleasure to use them to promote Old Town and my fellow artists at Amapola Gallery. –Kristin Parrott, carver, painter and acorn stuffer
