|Jammed with treasures. (Julianne G. Crane|
It is one of those places where you can kill lots of time just moseying from one display case to the next. One glass enclosed case that caught my eye was the offering of Mickey Mouse watches. I happen to own an original Minnie Mouse watch, direct from Disneyland in Anaheim, given to me decades ago by my sister. I treasure it and keep replacing the batteries.

This destination retail store, tasting room, museum, is only 100-yards-or-so south of the Tumacácori Mission.
Santa Cruz Chili is both "a manufacturer and retailer of fine chili products." It sells, "a wide variety of gourmet Southwestern foods, cookbooks and a large selection of spices and herbs." Inside the retail store is also "a quaint Western Museum documenting the rich history of the area."

Drop by to see the museum artifacts, sample the chili pastes and sauces, and "find that spice you have been looking for or just soak up the rich history and heritage of this special land."
