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.

It is a very good shop for fine American Indian art and Indian made items. I bought a collection which included a spear and a war ax and a shield.

I love coming to this place to stock up on my winter beading tools. It is inspiring to work my way through the main room art to the upstairs gallery and gawk at the amazing artists on display or zone out in the book store on the second floor. The smell of herbs and leather is to bad either.

This is my kind of place!!! I could have spent literally HOURS in here and a lot of money. For example, if I had had a spare $55,000 (yes, those zeros are correct) laying around, I would have left with a breathtaking sculpture. I then would have needed to add an "art room to our current home, the sculpture was... More

This is one of THE most amazing "stores" I've ever been in, and I love to shop! ;-) A wonderful selection of goods and merchandise, and what a beautiful experience. The lay out of the store is done in such a wonderful way that you don't even realize that you're traveling up 3 stories. It's definitely worth the stop, while... More

This is a store that could easily be a museum. I loved so many things in this store. Even the bookstore had things I liked. The people who worked there were helpful and patient as I asked so many questions. The artwork was beautiful!

I love shopping here. If you look bargains can be found. We love looking through the store and seeing so many native artifacts for sale. The clothing is also very good though some are a little pricy but you pay for quality. Be sure to check out the upstairs also.

Absolutely beautiful shop. Could spend hours in there just looking around. I bought the majority of my gifts to take home from here, so much choice and such good quality everything they sell. Unfortunately I didn't get the main thing I wanted to buy as they had sold out, but they have a website and I will get it later!!!... More
