Sedona has more than 50 galleries, food emporiums, New Age metaphysical shops, specialty stores, antiques and even an outlet shopping district, with both national stores and local businesses.
In Sedona’s shops there are numerous one-of-a-kind gift items that are not available elsewhere as well as classic favorites, such as name-brand sporting goods, clothing, books, CDs, toys and electronics.
When you shop in Sedona, you are likely to be delighted and surprised. There is so much to discover—from Native American crafts and healing gemstones to outdoor wind sculptures and many whimsical and handmade items. You can take home a hand-carved walking stick or wooden flute or perhaps a blown-glass bottle stopper, a custom-made bird house or healthy treats for your pet.
There so many styles of art in great abundance that there is surely a piece to win every heart. Sedona’s world-class galleries feature original paintings and multi-media works, jewelry, photography, sculpture, pottery, rugs, art glass, woven textiles, hand-crafted furniture and collectible kachinas and fetishes.

Other Sedona products around town include candles; cactus jellies; bath, body and facial goods, custom-fitted Western boots—even a limited edition of wrist watches produced in the Swiss style.
Large items can be shipped, but you might want to pack an extra bag for those small treasures you will want to carry with you.
