The magic of Jackalope
In Santa Fe, Jackalope is a home and garden shopping destination that is considered one of the top-five attractions visited by the more than 900,000 tourists to Santa Fe each year. Founded in 1976 by Darby McQuade as a way to share his travels to Mexico and around the world, the store carries beautiful and unique items from Mexico, India, Thailand, Bali, Africa, China, and Egypt.
Jackalope features international folk art, Christmas ornaments, pottery, handmade furniture, and rugs. The main store boasts several acres of New Mexico sun-drenched excitement including wildlife in the trees, a prairie-dog village, glass blowing demonstrations, a plant nursery, a furniture store, and a Mercado.
Growth and expansion
Visitor and residents in Albuquerque have their own Jackalope, only a minute from I-25. Each locale sells pottery, furniture, local and imported folk art, rugs, garden décor, nursery stock, and more. Jackalope isn’t your average home-furnishing store. In fact Jackalope is often spotlighted on television as a furnishing and fixture destination for home improvement shows.
In a world of cookie-cutter, big-box chain stores, each Jackalope location has its own, distinctive personality. In a carnival meets old world market–atmosphere, Jackalope offers its customers an experience that cannot be felt at any other retail establishment. Shopping at any one of the Jackalope stores, with its eclectic array of merchandise for every budget, is a unique experience that’s not to be forgotten.
