    Excellent Shop in the View Hotel

    by vichatherly Written Apr 1, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The shop in View Hotel is excellent. It stocks the usual tee shirts and sweatshirts, but also it has some really nice local crafts made by the local Navajo residents.

    We bought a really nice soapstone chieftain. My wife nearly gave into the temptation of a cowboy hat, but then couldn't think of anywhere that she would wear it again. She's not really into line dancing.

    ROADSIDE STANDS: NATIVE CRAFTS

    by LoriPori Written Oct 17, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One thing you will notice in the areas around Monument Valley, are the abundance of ROADSIDE STANDS selling Native American crafts. It's mostly turquoise stones set in sterling silver. Also jewelry with colorful beads, in the shape of earrings, necklaces, rings and bracelets. I'm always intrigued by what they have to sell and cannot resist looking at their offerings and craftmanship, esp the turquoise jewelry. Most have decent prices, but don't always pay what they initially ask for.

    local merchant trinkets: Cowboys & Indians

    by richiecdisc Updated Sep 2, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I thought this little shop conveniently located near the Artist's Point was interesting mostly for its sign outside. Now, I liked John Wayne as much as anyone as a kid but I found it incongruous that his picture be bigger than Geronomo's who was a real life hero amongst his people. I did however like that he was emblazoned on an American flag since he is, after all, an American. It's a shame we didn't learn much about him in history class when I was growing up. Maybe kids do learn it now. This park could be a place where that history lesson starts and it's time they start doing it.

    Monument Valley Trading Post: Authentic native Indian Crafts; jewelry

    by jumpingnorman Updated Jun 21, 2009

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    They have given a name to the gift shop within this huge hotel right in Monument Valley Tribal Park. It is called appropriately the Monument Valley Trading Post.

    What struck me most was the amazing Native Indian jewelry in the center. Fortunately, my wife was busy eating ice cream with the kids at the time, hehehe…But I also noted that this was an excellent place to get authentic certified licensed handmade Indian Arts and Crafts.
    The trading post boasts one of the largest Navajo rug collections – I like looking at the brilliant colors and it seems the weavers bring them directly to this store.

    They also have one-of-a-kind artifacts which can be a bit expensive --- including souvenirs of Hollywood movies shot on location at Monument Valley.

    What to buy: Native Indian authentic crafts, jewelry
