Tour the Santa Fe Trading Company in Old Town Victorville.

Santa Fe Trading Company Slide Show Tour

The main store seems small when you enter, but don’t let that fool you. You’ll walk through another room that seems to go on and on. Plan plenty of time for browsing. This is just the first part of the tour. Browsing through this fascinating Old World shop reminds me of driving through Bryce Canyon in Utah. You discover new beauty with every turn.

Stroll through the outer courtyard of sundials. Listen to the gentle sounds of running water from the Santa Fe style fountains. Admire the amazing cacti. Cactus plants are available in small, medium, large, and extra large pots. When you exit the courtyard, don’t miss Santa Fe Trading Company’s little historical building – the one where the first soft-serve ice cream was made in Victorville back in the day. Step inside to see petting cactus plants that you can actually feel without getting stuck.

If you call ahead, you might be able to go on an Old Town Victorville tour with Santa Fe Steve himself.  Consider adding vintage shops to your visit in Old Town Victorville. One delightful shop, The Chic Boutique, is only a couple of doors down from Santa Fe Trading Company. Old Town Victorville makes an enjoyable day for the Route 66 enthusiast and vintage admirer.  Follow them at Facebook to keep track of their upcoming events and new items.

    I used to work at Santa Fe. I love the shop and love the creative talent of the owner. You have got to go there to really experience the ambiance and the old world feel. You’ll come away with a new feeling not to mention, a few gifts for either your home or a gift for a friend. Oh! And don’t forget to take the Walking Tour.

    Patricia, thank you for sharing. I am looking forward to the walking tour. I agree with you. One must go to the Santa Fe shop to feel the old world ambience. My husband and I love it. there. The first time I met the owner, he offered assistance and appeared as the “gardener”. No wonder – his appreciation for plants and gardens shows in the beautiful plants there.
