  • The trading post employed hundreds of native craftspeople in its heyday. It closes upon its founder’s death, and is reopened in the 1980s by Maurice’s grandson, Skip.
  • It continued to trade as Skip Maisel’s Indian Jewelry and Crafts, until summer of 2019, when Skip Maisel retires and closes the business.

  • Fabulous Kingman Turquoise Stone!
  • Looks like “New” old stock from a defunct trading post.
