To some, we are a Native American art gallery; to others, we are a trading post reminiscent of days gone by. On the corner of 6th Street and Main in downtown Rapid City, Prairie Edge stands two stories high and stretches out for half a block as a brick, wood, and glass storefront that has been restored to its original 19th century glory. Inside, the hardwood floors and polished cabinetry bring to mind the spirit of the Old West, while the distinct smell of sweetgrass and soft sound of a Lakota flute evoke the mystique of the Plains Indian culture.

I live in the same town as Prairie Edge and it's my all-time favorite shop...hands down! The building itself is beautiful. The gift area is full of unique pieces. There's a book store with amazing books. The jewelry....the drums... but the art gallery in the upper level...I could spend an hour or more up there and be happy. This place... More

It is an experience to visit, especially if you love native american art. I love the glass bead gallery but rarely can I afford something from the glass cases- at bit high priced- even the star quilts which are okay in quality fabric and design. I do love to shop there.

This is a great place to see some History (retail store) and fun to browse thru. I found another Indian history book to add to my collection. I like the fact they have Indian artists working on the premise. The value seems good when you get to seem them work.

Wonderful place to wander and explore fun artists and get a feel for the country. It is almost like a museum with the opportunity to purchase. Great bookstore hidden in the back too.

I come here often. This is one of the nicest stores I have been in anywhere. If you have an interest in Native American culture and history, or would like something related for your home, this is your place. Don't miss the bookstore, the amazing upstairs art gallery, and the Sioux Trading Post in the back...my favorite. They have an... More
