    General gift shops: Stuff and more Stuff

    by goodfish Written Nov 16, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There's no shortage of opportunities at the canyon for a tourist to be parted from their hard-earned cash. I’ve covered some the better choices in previous shopping reviews but aside from those, just about every single lodge and attraction has its own tchtochke shop.
    Some of the goods, such as local craft, is well worth the spend, and some of it is mass-produced junk found all over the southwest. What you buy and how much you buy is up to you but it’s always a good idea to take a look to see where some of it was made: it might be one of a kajillion instead of a kind.

    Here’s a list of shops at the both rims:

    What to buy: Best choices: books, authentic local crafts, items which benefit the park or anything you will actually USE and/or enjoy once you get home. Yes, we do buy t-shirts, and we do wear them. They had some good deals on good-quality bundled T's (two long-sleeved or three short-sleeved) when we were there.

    Grand Canyon Association Bookshops: "Be Part of Something Grand"

    by goodfish Written Nov 16, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For the requisite Christmas bauble for the Travel Tree, pin for my collection or a good read for post-hike evenings, we always head to one of a park's bookshops. Books ’n’ More is operated by the non-profit Grand Canyon Association, and is located on the main visitor center plaza at the South Rim. Along with the usual t-shirts, caps and whatnot, this one has a good collection of art prints, posters, toys, CDs, maps, water bottles, jewelry, cards and, yes, books. Money from the sales of these items goes towards wildlife programs, trail and structure restoration, children’s programs and all sorts of other good works within the park so it’s a great choice for spending your souvenir dollars. You can read more about the organization here:

    The Association has nice shops at Kolb Studio, Yavapai Observation Station, Desert View, Verkamp’s Visitor Center, Tusayan Museum, the North Rim and Kaibab National Forest Visitor Centers as well.

    Souvenir outlets inside and outside the Park: Buying rocks

    by SLLiew Written Feb 7, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What to buy: What amazes me is the varieties of rocks, crystals and semi-precious stones that can be bought in this Southwestern part of USA.

    Caught my attention was the different uses of rocks and minerals by the local Native Indians as health and curative theraphy.

    There are also slates or rocks containing fossils of millions of years old. Whether a small fish or seashell immortalized in stone sold a less than US$5 is worth buying, right? OK, there is also "fools gold" for sale.
