Head around the corner to the artist cooperative Expressions on Front Street, a venue to create and showcase the work of local artists and artisans.

Just down the street, head to Native and check out their offerings of pottery, jewelry, textiles, accessories, and artifacts from diverse tribes and cultures including the American Southwest, Mexico, India, Africa, Nepal, Thailand, South America, and New Guinea. Native goes on buying trips to the Southwest, Peru, Ecuador, and Guatemala, importing these handmade, often one-of-a-kind, items directly from these countries, working with co-ops and fair trade organizations.
