Grand Canyon Shopping

Shopping in the Grand Canyon can also be part of this unique vacation experience. Grand Canyon National Park offers a fabulous selection of convenient shops for visitors who wish to enjoy camping or perhaps other outdoor activities like hiking; they offer everything from fishing gear to flashlights. For visitors who wish to bring home that unique gift, something that will remind them of the Grand Canyon, there are many specialty boutiques and galleries.

Souvenirs and Special Gifts
A favorite store among travelers to this area is the Grand Canyon Trading Post, where they have some of the most amazing souvenirs and gifts. Here you can find beautiful mugs, shot glasses, paintings and books with landscapes of the Canyon. You’ll also find local crafts and pottery made by Native American tribes. It’s truly a must in Grand Canyon shopping.

El Tovar Hotel gift shop is another special place in which to find unique gifts. Don’t expect bargains, but do expect to find unusual gifts, creative pieces of jewelry and beautiful dream catchers made by local tribes.

Tip: Grand Canyon stores open from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. while the Canyon Village Marketplace remains open until 8:00 p.m.

Arts and Crafts
Arts and crafts are at the top of Grand Canyon shopping, as they represent the different periods of history, as well as the difference in cultures of the Native Americans who have populated this area.

The Hopi House, home to the Hopi Indians at one time, is one of the best places to shop for Native American handicrafts. It also offers a wide range of products from the region. You’ll find the Hopi House on the West Rim Drive, East of El Tovar Hotel. The prices are reasonable and the selection is quite interesting. It’s like visiting a museum, except that you can buy whatever you like.

The Pueblo Indian Gallery is another fabulous place, with great displays of Native American jewelry and arts. The prices are somewhat higher but the craftsmanship that has gone into creating each piece of jewelry, makes the prices a secondary factor.

Native American
A renowned name in Grand Canyon shopping is Verkamp’s Curios; it’s a shop where you’ll find almost everything you could possibly want from this region. The selection of jewelry, pottery, rugs, baskets and carvings by Native American Indians is unbelievable. You’ll also find clothing and specialty clothing items like moccasins. There’s an enormous selection of souvenirs at every price range for all your friends and loved ones back home.

Art
A favorite in Grand Canyon shopping mementos are the landscapes created by local artist Bruce A. Aiken. He has lived in the area since 1973 and has become world renowned for his ability and talent in recreating the most amazing vistas of the Grand Canyon. He has also created beautiful “coffee table books,” a treasure for everyone’s home.
