We picked up an authentic tomahawk for our son. He has several types of native knives and this made a great addition to his collection

I wasn't able to arrive at the Qualla Arts and Crafts Mutual until about 30 minutes before they closed for the day. I wish I had about two hours to really look at everything available for purchase. And I wish I had more money to spend on items. There are many beautiful items, especially baskets, and the staff are very... More

My wife is a member of the Oklahoma tribe of Cherokees so it was nice to go in and see the items for sell and on display. We recognized some of the artists as Western Cherokees, although most of the artists are Eastern Cherokees. There is a museum quality art gallery also here to look at. There is a small... More

This is a wonderful place to see history and pick up a piece of art work. Everyone should see what Cherokee has to offer. It's a must see for a history buff.

This center is directly across the street from the Museum of the Cherokee Indians. We decided to stop for lunch after the museum and then look at the center. The quality of the work displayed at the center is outstanding and we were sorry to not have sufficient time to appreciate all the works that were there. There is a... More

I have done alot of shopping in the best in Navajo area in the American southwest. This was the first time I shopped for Indian stuff outside of that area. Some observations: - I was impressed with the store in that I didn't see anything made in China in the store. It seemed to be cream of the crop in... More

They have a huge selection of different kinds of art, ranging from woven baskets, pottery, and stone carvings, to handmade jewelry, keepsakes, and traditional tribal items. Some items are pricey, but the workmanship is impeccable. I bought an adorable pair of sterling silver turtle earrings for around $30 (very reasonable). I highly recommend a visit even if just to look.

This place was great. I read the reviews and decided to make it one of two shopping stops. So glad we did! The other reviews say it is pricey - I actually found it to have stuff in all price ranges. I was able to buy my kids $2 pea shooters that have entertained them more than anything else I've... More

Absolutely gorgeous baskets, carvings, jewelry.....but very expensive. If you don't mind paying for the authentic crafts then this is the place.

Pairing a visit to the Qualla Arts and Crafts Mutual with a visit to the Museum of the Cherokee Indian provides a more complete understanding of Cherokee history and heritage. The center features the work of local artists and craftspersons, as well as a small selection of jewelry and small crafts from other native peoples. Exhibits convey the story of... More
