In the heart of the historic district there are some intersting shops. Purgatoire River Trading Company is the place to find authentic Navajo rugs, Native American pottery, Pima baskets, and old-pawn jewelry.

Purgatoire River Trading Company has an amazing collection of Native American jewelry and handicrafts (both contemporary and antique)that easily rivals anything you'll find in Santa Fe or Taos, but at astonishingly affordable prices. Located in the beautifully-restored historic McCormick Building on Main Street in El Corazon de Trinidad (Colorado), even the facilities are a delight to behold. Well worth the trip (through gorgeous country--try Cuchara
Pass and the Highway of Legends), and you're bound to find a treasure without which you cannot imaging leaving!
