  • There is a nice selection of Native American items here. I found the prices to be high, but I’m assuming they are all locally hand made. If that’s the case I guess they are worthy the higher cost. There are books, blankets, silver, turquoise, and lots of other types of items here. Overall my favorite part of this place was the view of the Sandias from the parking lot.
  • Great place for authentic Native jewelry and crafts. They have a huge selection of fine jewelry at market prices. We happened to catch a legitimate 30% sale (unlike the places with the double mark up and 50% sale price). Our goal was to find some quality southwestern rings while supporting Native American artisans. Bottom line, we got what we wanted at a price within our budget. Moreover, the staff was very helpful and pleasant. We had the pleasure of working with Mara. She is a delightful young lady with a quick wit and a great sense of humor. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- On another note, I see some other reviews here complaining about the adjacent gas station. I cannot speak to that, as it is a separate facility. Regardless, I feel I must speak go out against one particularly hateful reviewer who blamed his misfortunes on the local native culture. The comments from Local Guide D.M. are totally asinine. A quick scan of his other reviews indicates he is seldom pleased with any transaction. Perhaps the dismissive response he potentially received from the Sandia staff was more a response to his poor behavior than it was a matter of their "LAZY" attitude. Respect begets Respect.
