If you’re looking for audio equipment in the area, you might want to check out 5 Points Indoor Mercado. The market is like a flea market with different booths, but there are a number of them that feature stereos. Other booths include clothing, make-up, shoes, and wedding dresses, and it even has a little cafe in it. One Google reviewer, Xochi S., shared, 

“This place has it all! Clothes, shoes, make-up, a little place to eat, even a salon in the back! They have all the newest fashion styles, heels, boots, you name it they have it, and everything is totally affordable. I recommend giving this place a try.”

Another place to find boots in Vecinos del Bosque is Zapatería Pedrito 1. They have beautiful, ornate boots for both men and women, along with clothing and hats. People report that they have good deals and helpful staff.

Air Purifiers and Ozonators for Albuquerque Homes and Businesses

For those concerned with the indoor air quality of their home or workplaces, there are other solutions as well. Ask the team at Bosque about UV lights that improve the air quality of a space, and also the option to install an Ozonator. These machines put a safe percentage of ozone into the air in your home or business to help purify the air. 

I live in a new home in Stinson Tower. Why would I need to worry about the indoor air quality?

It is counterintuitive, but actually new homes are full of potential toxins that seep out of building materials like flooring and paint. In fact, your indoor air quality isn’t “pure” unless you take actions to make it so. Without any air purification steps, the air outside is much cleaner than the air in your home.
