Overview
More
Continental Divide Trading Post is located on Interstate 10 (Exit 42) about 20 miles east of Lordsburg, New Mexico. This store has a large selection of rugs and a fine assortment Indian made jewelry and artifacts, as well as the tremendous variety of items offered at all our Bowlin Stores. When you are at our Continental Divide Store, you are only a few miles from the Shakespeare Ghost Town and Stiens Railroad Ghost Town. If you will stay in the area for a few days, you can camp, hike and fish in the 2.7 Million acres of the Gila (pronounced hee-la) National Forest. The Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument is also there.

Lots of stuff to look at. Some authentic, some not so much, but fun. Definitely worth the stop and pretty good prices.

If you are looking for souvenirs, this is a great place to find them. If I didn't have to get back to the road, I could have spent all day here. Whether it's souvenirs, jewelry or offbeat clothing, you can find it all here. And...More

This was entertaining for me--a great short rest stop. The folks are friendly! It's easy to get back on the highway. There is a diverse mix of touristy and better stuff for sale. This isn't going to be fun at all for most very serious-minded...More

For something to do to break up a long drive across New Mexico, on Route 10, this is a nice "Trading Post" with clean bathrooms, friendly staff, nice turquoise jewelry, and more interesting stuff than you can imagine. Fun place to stop

This is such a fun shop! The people and all the goodies. Make your Christmas list and get all your shopping done in one place including the stocking stuffers (Santa are you listening?) Native made jewelry, candies from a New Mexico candy store. Blankets, pottery,...More

This is a good place to stop on the way across the southern US. You can get fuel, food, and some trinkets if you desire.

X country from California to Alabama we saw many Bowlins trading posts. They are all the same, full of touristy knick knacks, nothing special in my opinion and a little on the pricey side.
