Albuquerque - Penfield Gallery of Indian Arts

422 B San Felipe St. NW


The Penfield Company began in the 1880's as a general mercantile company in Lincoln County, NM, the home of Billy the Kid. The store served as a trade center with people coming from all parts of the state to trade in everything from farm supplies to Indian rugs.

The original store has since been made into a state museum. The John M. Penfield mentioned in the sign shown above is the grandfather of the current owner. The Penfield tradition continues since 1975 at their store in Albuquerque's historic Old Town.

Shop owner was very nice and told us a lot of history of the pieces and area. Prices were spendy but that's to be expected when buying handmade Native American souvenirs. Shop was kind of messy in a couple areas, but not really a big deal

Ruth is a long-term shop owner there in Old Town. She runs her family's shop and we have been long time clients of hers. I always recall her companion, Buckeye, greeting us at the door. We miss him but are please to still visit with Ruth.
