Sedona Shopping

by: Editor on 9/9/2017

 

Sedona is a one of a kind shopping experience where you can find stunning jewelry, works of art, homemade goodies and more. Whether you’re looking for a treat for yourself or a souvenir to take home, it’s easier to tackle Sedona shopping by districts rather than specific shop destinations. After all, you don’t want to miss out on the perfect treasure!

Sedona is an arts community, making it a prized region for art buyers and collectors. Check out the many galleries for contemporary southwestern work, Native American art and of course traditional Western pieces. There are also books, wearable art, specialty gift items and more finds at galleries around town.

Go Small or Go Home

Shop local in Sedona for the best buys. Like most activities in the area, shopping is often an outdoor “sport.” Head uptown to Arizona 89A and 179 to discover a smorgasbord of gift shops, galleries and restaurants. Everything you can imagine is in this district, including the Shops at Hyatt Pinon Pointe. Next, try the Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village to the south.

The Gallery District is teeming with galleries tucked into plazas including Hillside Sedona. You’ll be able to spot Chapel to the Holy Cross between shops, too. At The Village of Oak Creek, there are classic shopping opportunities, but you’ll still find local goodies here, too.

Only in Sedona

It’s tough to believe that in the 1970s, Sedona was a tiny town with a single stoplight. Most of the land was open range, but Nevada businessman Abe Miller saw potential in the area. He was also a lover of Mexican culture, and dedicated himself to creating the vibe of Old Mexico right in Sedona after he fell in love with the town during vacations. Tlaquepaque blends his love of perfection and sheer beauty.

He created a space where artists could craft right in front of visitors, welcoming them to live on-site. It’s how artists were nurtured in Mexico, and he knew it could work in Sedona. Named after a Mexican city in Guadalajara, it’s part of what helped Sedona thrive into the arts-loving city it is today.
