This place is just across the street of the Museum of the Cherokee. Actually the person who was attending at the reception of Museum recommended this shop to us. This place basically houses lots of authentic handmade Cherokee handicrafts which is probably the reason the stuff is a bit pricey. The hand made beaded jewelry, the Art-deco pieces ...everything is... More

Beautiful display of hand woven baskets, blankets and so much more. Also a display of what has been made by the Cherokee people . So much to buy in this store and the people who work there were very friendly and helpful.

There is so much to see and appreciate here, from basketry to pottery to weaving to jewelry and fabric arts. The workmanship is excellent and the prices reflect that. There also is a gallery showing some of the local history of these arts and how the cooperative started.

Everything there was made by local Indians of course but a little pricey. The staff however was extremely friendly and helpful, as they gave us ideas of where to go and what to do.

True arts and crafts here. The prices are higher but that's because it's the real deal. There's also a museum showcasing the history of Cherokee crafts.

I have twice visited Qualla Arts and Craft while visiting with extended family in North Carolina. In 2012, my husband and I went to the Oconaluftee Village and the Cherokee Museum and finished with this Gallery. I was very impressed with the quality crafts that were for sale and I bought some lovely beadwork gifts. In September 2014, I returned... More

The artwork was amazing and I loved the displays of carvings and basketry. However, most of the art offered was out of my price range.

I have been visiting Cherokee on a yearly basis for the last 50+ years and I NEVER visited the Qually Arts and Crafts Mutual until my last visit. SHAME ON ME! It was wonderful. The museum part of the Mutual is informative and beautiful. Not only do you get to witness the wonderful arts and crafts of the Cherokee Nation,... More

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
