The Santa Fe location of Standard & Strange can be found at 201 Galisteo Street, in a former art gallery space; directly across the street from the building that once housed the Santa Fe jail (and in it, Billy the Kid). We are four blocks from the historic Palace of the Governors, the oldest government building in the USA.
In our immediate neighborhood, you can grab a coffee and a book across the street - the jail is now Collected Works; the Southwest’s best independent bookseller and coffee shop. For the home, Hunt Modern is the place for mid-century modern furniture. Santa Fe Optical is an ideal stop to pick up a pair of sunglasses, and don’t overlook Cicada for your European designer needs.
We live on El Callejon’s tacos and Trattoria a Mano’s delicious pastas; and often refuel with a cup of coffee from Ikonik.
Santa Fe - “The City Different” - is at the base of the Sangre de Cristo mountains. Founded in 1610 on Native Puebloans land, there remains a rich and distinct Native American, Spanish, Mexican and Old West culture throughout the region.
The area’s scenic beauty, romantic lore and culture has drawn painters, writers and creatives from around the world for well over 175 years. In the last decade there has been a thriving contemporary art scene placing Santa Fe as one of the nations top three art markets.
A blend of local cultures, national and international transplants , the City Different is filled with people doing things - creating, reinventing, personal growth, outdoor adventures and exploring all- new directions in their lives.

If you are coming from out of town, be aware that you are at 7,200 feet, a high desert climate. It’s sunny almost every day, year round, with high UV index. Summer brings sudden thunder showers; and winter brings heavy snowfall. If you didn’t pack it you’ll want to buy a hat, sunglasses and perhaps a scarf or bandana plus lip balm.
