Saw an advertisement about this trading company and museum. They have a large assortment of gifts to buy from pottery, jewelry, music and more. The museum although small was very interesting. The staff were very helpful. Spent some time watching the staff paint various items.

Beautiful pieces available. From pottery, jewelry, weaving, to T-shirts. Authentic and local made items, including pottery right there. You can watch the artist make pottery. Amazing. If you are into wine, there is also a wine tasting. Well worth the visit.

So many peices of handmade pottery, rugs and other art. You can watch local artists while they work. Part gallery, part store. A must stop whenever we are in the area. Very friendly and helpful staff, and a 1/2 price section also

Saw this as we were entering Cortez. We wanted to pick up some souvenirs and there really isn't a lot in the town to do so, especially after 5pm. Nice little shop the clerks were helpful and I don't think this was stuff that was...More

Nice selection of pottery and other handcrafted items. Friendly staff. Some things are rather pricey but you can find a deal on a nice pot.

This was a great visit after visiting the Mesa Verde ruins. We watched artisans with their clay pots, and broused through miriads of native art.

We stopped in after a day at Mesa Verde. From the outside it held the promise of not just another shop with tacky stuff. And it lived up to its promise. We were looking for a gift for friends who recently relocated. The people there...More
