    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What would a visit be if you didn't checkout the bookstore to see what it has to offer. Some fabulous material from Calendars to my favorite "postcards" to add to my collection, audio and video CD's, coins, and list goes on.

    What to buy: Postcards and I bought a coin

    I'm not much of a shopper but, as Sue dragged me around the Gift Shop area of the Crazy Horse Memorial, even I was intrigued by the quality and variety of the many Native Indian crafts available for sale. The shopping area was beautifully done up, as seen here, with many paintings hanging on its walls. One particular set of landscapes was very intriguing due to the way the Lakota artist had worked various human features into the rocks and trees of the landscape - they were almost invisible until you suddenly changed your visualization of the scene. These paintings were priced in the low thousands of dollars!

    What to buy: Consequently, I was more than happy with Sue's choice of a $20 Red Jasper necklace (2nd photo), created by Lua Red Cloud of Lakota Reflections! Jasper is a mineral that gets its red colour from iron rock formations and, because it breaks with a smooth surface, it has been popular for centuries as a gemstone or even for making vases and other small trinkets.
