The shop has been here for eons and apparently still survives in spite of decline in tourism to the area. They have a lot of local art pieces, and most are not within my range of what I want spend or enjoy. I do not buy much anymore, though; sizing down.
What to buy: Obviously Indian goods that are varied and wide in what is offered. Art works are the main attraction.
What to pay: $20-50
The American Indian Art Center represents 100 native American artisans from thirty woodlands and plains tribes - works including paintings, sculptures, carvings, pottery, beadwork, jewelry, history, silver smithing. Also available are books, note cards, gift cards, etc. Even if you're not there to buy (as was the case when Nancy and I visited), a tour will help you gain an appreciation of native artists and their works.
What to buy: I would have been thrilled to bring home some of the beautiful pottery and carvings we saw that day. I saw few paintings of interest to me, but know that what's available changes from time to time.
Dealing directly with the artists is always a plus, and Inga and Bob are special people - helpful, friendly, and interesting conversationalists. Nice setting amongst the trees and flowers, too.
What to buy: Decorative handmade terra cotta tiles, plates, sculpture, pastel, collage, etc. We were delighted to find a framed piece that we really liked, and for which we had a perfect spot to display. A nice memento from this little two day excursion.
What to pay: You won't break the bank here. Lots of items under $100.
