About this trip

 Santa Fe is just fabulous - full of art, culture, and amazing food!  Once a year, the city plays host to the International Folk Art Market which features craftspeople from around the world.  In addition to spending a day there, we will also have a champagne tasting, visit the Canyon Road galleries, become immersed in a colorful art experience, and taste some of the best hot chocolate ever!

The International Folk Art Market

The mission of the International Folk Art Market is to create economic opportunities for and with folk artists worldwide who celebrate and preserve folk art traditions.  It envisions a world that values the dignity and humanity of the handmade, honors timeless cultural traditions, and supports the work of artisans serving as entrepreneurs and catalysts for positive social change.

167 artists from 51 countries from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe will be offering artwork, apparel, jewelry, glass pieces, sculpture, and textiles.  This not only helps keep these folk crafts alive, it provides needed income for these artisans.

I’m Sheila Stone and I love travel so much that I started a tour company when I was 60. (Have I mentioned that I’m also a late bloomer?) I create and lead small groups of women to interesting places in Europe & Japan. I have also created some Speed Date a City weekends here in the States. My tours give women an opportunity to meet other women travelers and local women too. We support local businesses by staying in small hotels and eating at family restaurants as much as possible so this is travel you can feel good about!


I had such a great day with Sheila. She organize all of our stops. Explained the origin of the food we were eating. I felt as if I was in another country. It's always wonderful to spend time with Sheila!

Thank you Sheila for a fabulous time in Santa Fe. Everything was perfectly set up for us. The Hotel was in a great location. It was very clean and included breakfast. The museums were so interesting. Sheila is a delight to travel with. So organized. I definitely will travel with her in the future. I'm still thinking about the delicious chocolate tasting!

What a great weekend in Santa Fe. Sheila is a great organizer and everything ran smoothly. Action packed but with plenty of time to walk around and relax. We hit some great spots and I don't think we missed anything. Sheila did a great job and it was just a fantastic trip. Caroline

Really fun four-day weekend! Sheila is a knowledgable tour guide, and was able to pivot when we needed to make changes to the itinerary, and she also kept our needs in mind. I had a great time and hope to join her on another one of her tours!

I recently traveled with Sheila on her Japan cherry blossom tour 2023. We had a wonderful time, seeing and doing so much, both traditional and unusual tourist stuff. Sheila was open to suggestions and did not hesitate to change the itinerary when weather or interests dictated a change was needed. I particularly enjoyed meeting her Japanese friends as their personal approach to guiding provided insight into the lives and culture of Japanese families. There was lots of laughter, great food and good company. I would definitely recommend traveling with Sheila.

The Wild About Harry Tour was amazing! My kids and I had a fantastic time. Sheila was great in making sure we saw as much of Harry Potter that London and Oxford have to offer, and she was also helpful in getting us to see the cities and planning our side trip to Paris. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity that we will never forget, and we talk about constantly. Thank you!

Thoroughly enjoyed my Bayou trip with tour host Sheila and local host Andrina. Great mix of fun sights including Mardi Gras museum, local food, shopping, bars and music in NOLA. A powerful Whitney plantation visit. Andrina hosted a traditional crawfish boil and an amazing get together with women of the local area representing the various cultures of the region. Felt like visiting with friends and family. Highly recommend this trip! Sheila is a great guide and trip planner.
