This place was full of stuff. A lot of the wood carvings and metalwork looked like it is from Mexico. In fact, most of the items for sale seemed to be imported. Note the chilies drying.

Is it on the route 66?? I see the sign..

28 Feb 2012 9:49am

@Riccardo: No, this place had lots of signs. Route 66 went west out of Flagstaff, Arizona just 20 miles (32 kilometers) or so north of here.

I like the owner's eye-catching sign that contrasts so beautifully with what he sells! This must be a deliberate method of gaining attention. Nice one.

Williams from East LaHave, Nova Scotia, Canada

Cool shot. Wonder if the couple on the bench are waiting for the show to begin or just trying to take it all in? I like the cactus in the lower right which at first looked like big melons.
