In addition to our regular selection of original artwork, our annual Ornament Market starts Thanksgiving Day with a wonderful selection of all hand made American Indian ornaments decorating trees and counters throughout the store.

Ornament Market runs through the holiday season but you will find the best selections early on. We have a limited number of all our ornaments and when they are gone- they're gone!

Woven ornaments by Sandra Hamana (Hopi)

Every year we commission ornaments from many different artists with the intent of providing new designs for our collectors and showcasing new artists. We also continue to carry old favorites like our Folk Art ornaments by artists such as Marvin Jim, Burlin Lansing and Ray and Alondra Lansing. We were very fortunate to get a small selection of Alaskan ornaments as well as copper ornaments by Edward Lewis (Tohono O'odham) in his classic knotless netting technique.

For our out-of-town customers, we will have a large selection of ornaments that will be available online at the same time we open our doors to the in-town public at 10am. So on Thanksgiving day, get that turkey in the oven, fire up the computer and shop away! For our in-town customers, the shops open at 10am! The Heard Museum Shops are a great place to find one-of-a-kind gifts this season in a beautiful, stress-free environment.

This is a sneak preview and just a small sampling of what we'll have.
Please note, we will not take any pre-orders on ornaments so everybody has a fair chance of getting what they want.
Thank you for your understanding and happy holidays!
