Mine is an old Albuquerque family. Skip Maisel's is a required visit each trip back. Salespersons Betty and Quinton are wonderful at helping guide you through this treasure trove. Maisel's is an Albuquerque tradition and should not be missed. I live near Scottsdale and am now used to Scottsdale prices. I paid about a third of that pricing for a squash blossom set made by Bennie Ration; I got to meet and talk Bennie who consequently made a matching set of earrings for me in a larger size. A treat is to watch the silversmiths at work through an overlook provided on the sales floor. My family and I also had the pleasure of meeting another of their silversmith's, Cecil Atencio, on this past trip. Charming and fun man. Each trip brings another depth of color to this source for all things Native American Indian. If you want common souvenirs, they can give you tremendous bargains on not so common pieces. If you want the uncommon... let's just say that I have just acquired a couple of pieces (Lonn Parker bracelet and a Daniel Coriz necklace) that will make the Scottsdale set swoon, and left me literally giggling at the value. Oh... and service? Unbelievable. Any problems are taken care of quickly and with professional service via phone, email and mail. Purchases can be shipped out of state free of tax. Go on... if you want Native American Indian craftsmanship... this is your store!
