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

Glad we stopped into see the authentic arts and crafts. Every thing was very expensive. We would have liked to purchase an authentic item. However,we decided to pass.

Authentic native american crafts! I saw some things that I wanted, but most were too expensive for me at the time, but that's because of the authenticity. There were some cheaper items, but I didn't want them. All in all, a nice place to look at arts and crafts!

Too bad excellent is the highest rating that can be assigned for a Trip Advisor attraction/shopping because this arts cooperative is the most exceptional one we’ve ever visited. The artwork here is breathtaking. You can spend a few dollars for quality trinkets or thousands of dollars for stunning pieces of art. The staff was friendly and helpful but never hovered.... More

Most of the things I loved were pricey but they were genuine and handmade so I don't blame them. I just wish I could afford those earrings I wanted :-( so sad but very nice to at least walk through.
