About us

La Fonda on the Plaza in Santa Fe, built in 1922 on the site of the first inn that was built by Spanish colonialists, sits on the oldest hotel corner in America. Embracing our extensive history, La Fonda has reimagined our original newsstand, the hotel’s gift shop, as Detours at La Fonda, a boutique featuring local southwestern artisans. 

Located inside the historic hotel, at the corner of San Francisco street and The Old Santa Fe Trail, here you can discover all things wonderful, from imaginative gifts to whimsical art to a La Fonda lifestyle collection. We draw upon the themes of travel, whimsy and local New Mexico color and specialize in featuring one-of-a-kind gifts. Shoppers will find original paintings, textiles, jewelry, children’s toys, sunglasses, spa products, ceramics, and even La Fonda’s exclusive tequila. The curios here are eclectic and unmatched and appeal to all types of shoppers.

This online shop is just a small representation of what we have to offer and will continue to change as we add more items to the store. We encourage you to check back frequently.
