    Sedona – Tlaquepaque: arts and crafts village

    by vtveen Updated Nov 24, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    ‘Of course’ we visited Sedona’s shopping landmark ‘Tlaquepaque’ (pronounced Tla-keh-pah-keh) not far away from Uptown Sedona. (We walked to the shopping center – avoiding parking problems and returned by a free shuttle bus).

    Tlaquepaque is built in Mexican style with shaded courtyards, fountains, tiles staircases, flowers, trees and cobble stoned plazas. And the most important it offers about 40 shops, restaurants and one café. As a matter of fact most of the ‘shops’ are art galleries; others are really upscale shops selling jewellery, crafts and wearable’s. Don’t expect cheap knickknacks in Tlaquepaque and don’t forget your credit card.

    To be honest we loved it strolling around and having a drink watching the visitors, but didn’t buy anything (not really our taste and most of the stuff was just too expensive).

    Opening hours of the shops: 10 am -5 pm; closed Thanksgiving Day and Christmas day.

    What to buy: Artwork, jewellery, clothing and gifts

    Navajo vendors: crafts from Navajo Nation

    by vtveen Updated Nov 6, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It isn’t a shopping mall, it isn't a shop, it isn’t even a booth, no there are just some tables in the open air along the Chinle Wash in the shadow of some trees just beneath the White House Ruin, were local Navajo craftsmen try to sell their craft.

    Most of it - at least during our visit - was jewellery. They told us it was made of silver, but with these very cheap prices, I really doubt if it is the truth.

    What to buy: My wife bought a Navajo bracelet for just USD 5,- and when it didn’t fit too well a friendly Navajo woman changed it on the spot.

    On other places along the South Rim Drive Navajo were also selling pottery, carvings, rock art and music.

    What to pay: From USD 5,-

    which one .... ????

    Scottsdale Fashion Square: huge mall, not only with fashion shops

    by vtveen Written Oct 24, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On our way north to Holbrook) we made a stop at the Scottsdale Fashion Square, more or less expecting a lot (or only) fashion shops. But we were rather surprised by the variety of shops (some with elite brands), department stores, and restaurants in this huge mall.
    Did read there should be about 225 shops and is the largest shopping mall of Arizona !! Amazing to see there were even constructions to add more shops to the Fashion Square.

    We even didn’t have time enough to stroll along all the shops on the three floors. Just time to see some of them and to buy a couple of clothes (they were so cheap for us) and some food for our lunch.

    Shopping is not our favourite holiday occupation, but this visit was worth the time and money.

    Openinghours: Mon-Sat: 10am-9pm / Sun 11am-6pm

    Grand Canyon Harley Davidson-Flagstaff: a 'thing to do' or a 'shopping tip' ... you decide

    by kymbanm Written May 6, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I've always wanted to stop here and look around, this time I did! It's a fun diversion from a long drive, and totally worth the stop :)

    The decor is fun, the scoots are beautiful, and the folks are friendly.

    If you ride, this is a must activity ... if you don't, it's a should activity :)

    If you need a real excuse to stop - check out the Route 66 Bar and Grille off the same parking lot ... info in my Restaurant tips sections [wink-wink].

    What to buy: Well, this IS a Harley shop .. so bikes, gear, jewelry, clothing, etc. should be on your idea list in this shop ...

    What to pay: I have a gift for finding the sale rack in under 15 minutes in any store .... and this was no different.

    I bought gifts for friends: Tops of various Harley styles/designs - each for about $12.00 [50% off sale items]

    A stuffed turkey by the register ....

    Jerome

    by madamx Updated Apr 18, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The little town of Jerome is not particularly picturesque, but is worthwhile to look at, since it was built on the side of the mountain. As a result, the town streets are twisted, steep, and narrow, as well as the road up the Jerome.

    You do get a flavor of the old west, looking at some of the historic buildings. Amongst the boutiques which are housed in mostly historic, renovated buildings, you can still find old abandoned building shells, left as is. I thought this was probably the most interesting feature of Jerome.

    It's claim to fame is that it was a mining town in the late 1800's, then virtually abandoned in the late 1950's. Hippies and artists moved in the 60's, and now the main draw here is it's stupendous views and the SHOPPING.

    Most of the stores here sell jewellery, arts, or crafts, and this is the perfect destination for a girl's road trip. Or guys, if you know any guys who are into shopping.

    What to buy: There are an overwhelming amount of boutiques here, and items range from weird and tacky to gorgeous and tres expensive! I think the best items to look at here are the wide range of locally made crafts, which are great for gift items to bring back to friends at home.

    What to pay: Prices range from reasonable to expensive, depending on what you want to buy.

    Hopi House

    by madamx Written Apr 18, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Hopi House at the Grand Canyon was originally designed by Mary Colter, and was completed in 1905 by Hopi builders. It is designed to look like a tradtional Hopi dwelling, complete with old wooden pull doors and very low entrance ways -- I'm 5'2" and I had to duck slightly.

    Hopi House sells native crafts, jewellery and gifts, and the selection tends to be more on the tasteful, and pricey side. However, you can find some items at reasonable prices. If you even aren't intrested in buying, browsing is fun, as well as having a look at the building.
