Susan's Christmas Shop in Santa Fe offers the best selection of handmade Christmas ornaments and nativities. Since 1978, Susan's charming location is an historic adobe room a half block east of the plaza on Palace Avenue, right next to The Shed, a favorite local restaurant. Susan's Christmas is often the very first place return visitors to Santa Fe come to.
Susan sold over 1,500 copies herself of her second book, Nativities of the World, so far. And it has already been reprinted. It is being sold in museum shops around the country. Many customers bought one copy, took it home to read, and returned to buy a stack of them. One customer bought 41 copies. Susan's first book, Christmas in Santa Fe, is now in the revised and expanded second edition, with eight more pages and nine new photos. The one of Acoma Pueblo on Christmas Eve is breathtaking. Susan has personally sold more than 6,000 copies of Christmas in Santa Fe. Susan has discovered that she loves to write, and readers have discovered they like to read her books.
Her latest book is Nativities of the Southwest, hot off the press in July of 2015. It shows a hundred nativities by Pueblo, Navajo, Spanish and Anglo artists. It is selling briskly, and Susan has book signings in at the Eiteljorg Museum in Indianapolis in early October, the Friends of the Creche Convention in Houston in mid October, and the Heard Museum in Phoenix in early November. If you wish to know specific information about Susan's book signings, you can subscribe to our email newsletter. Many people enjoy reading the newsletter and forward it to their friends. We are already selling Nativities of the Southwest on our website, and we expect the first printing to sell out before Christmas.
Susan has just submitted the manuscript for her fourth book to the publisher. This book will be about Susan's Christmas Shop. Once it has been edited and designed and printed, it will be available. Prorbably this will be in July of 2016.
