Out in the wild wild southwestern Santa Fe, I touched my Native American roots (blood-wise, I have none) while technically trespassing onto an Indian Reservation in the middle of the night (true story). Having survived (we lost one), I traipsed back into Kowboyz territory and got myself a shiny new (old) pair of cowboy boots, and a skirt for side saddling into the sunset. And well whadaya know, folks like Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, Britney Spears, Elton John and Madonna have all done traipsed in this here establishment before me.
Kowboyz has been in business for 30 years, moving from LA to Santa Fe, hawking cowboy regalia and the likes. We took a good gander inside and found a treasure trove of Southwestern trinkets, and our dear dead cowboy.
