Southwest Shopping

When you come to Arizona, you will want to shop where the typical southwest items can be found.  Just about any of the cities and towns will offer you shops full of antiques, rustic items, and anything western to clothes, jewelry or items for your decor.  I will list some of the ones I found in Arizona.

SEDONA:  Just about anywhere in Sedona you can find novelty, antique, new age, and southwestern shops.
Center for the New Age
341 Hwy 179 
Sedona, AZ 86336 (across from Tlaquepaque)
Phone: (928) 282-2085
The building has four different shops which provide massages, healings, psychic readings, vortex information, books and crystals. In the back of one shop you can get your aura read. I found that to be an interesting experience.

Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village
336 State Route 179
Sedona, AZ 86339
Phone: (928) 282-4838
Tlaquepaque (Tia-keh-pah-keh) means "best of everything" and was built in the 1970's.  Located near Oak Creek with flourishing vegetation all around its grounds, Tlaquepaque has the look of an original Mexican town.  Inside are many interesting shops, galleries, restaurants, with cobble-stoned walkways and arched entryways with vines growing all over the stucco walls.

Uptown Sedona is located in the center of town where Highway 89A and 179 come together. Along the half-mile route you can find many diverse shops, restaurants, and cafes. Below the shopping locality run the cool waters of Oak Creek. Amongst the various assorted shops are Native American and southwest items, galleries which display local artist works, and many of the touring establishments. Be sure to park your car and take a stroll through Uptown Sedona.

MIAMI, AZ:  This small town has several antiques shops which offer many southwestern items.


CACTUS N STUFF
404 W. Pima Street
Gila Bend, AZ 85337
(928) 683-2411
The Cactus N Stuff shop has a great variety of antiques, Arizona items, and hand-made metal western art. 

ART AND ANTIQUE CORRAL
The Art and Antique Corral store in Payson caught Sharon and I's attention with its amazing display in front of the store.  What we didn't expect was all the unbelievable antiques, stones, and quirky Arizona items we found inside. The owner's dog was adorable.  She followed Sharon and I all over the store, and even out in the back where there was a couple old doors we wanted but had no room to put in Sharon's car.  I could have spent all day at this place and not seen everything.  It is a must see if you love antiques.  It sits along the highway coming into Payson from Phoenix.

These are just a few examples of the southwest/antique shops you will find around Arizona.  There are shops in Phoenix/Tucson and surrounding cities, Tombstone, Jerome, Bisbee, and just about everywhere go in this western state.
