Hi all,

I just moved to Tempe this April. I am thinking of having a southwest jewelry store in pheonix area or somewhere else in AZ (except Tucson). I am thinking of moving to Prescott. I don't know if prescott is a good place for the southwest jewelry. It would be very appreciated if anybody can give me some suggestions.

Nat

Lots of Indian reservations there and they sell a lot of Southwest Jewlery.

The last thing we need in Arizona is one more store that sells Southwest jewelry or anything Southwest. Try to think of something a little more unique. Retail is tough to begin with and unless you have something that nobody else has it will be tough to make a living. Not trying to be a downer, but better to find out now than a year or two from now that the whole Southwest theme peaked years ago. I knew it had peaked when you could buy howling coyotes and dream catchers at Hershey Park in Pennsylvania.

LOL, well said.

Yep, when it's at the point where you can buy Southwest jewelry/knickknacks at any gas station or convenience store, I'd guess the market is a little saturated.

As a jewelry aficionado, Quartzsite. I think that is the spelling. I've bought about wayyyyyyyy too much jewelry since 2001, so I think I have a slight idea of places to look. Then again, I have a slight jewelry "problem," so take this FWIW. (and none of it's valuable).

Default Go to Sun Valley

and give my cousin some competition. He runs a trading post in Sun Valley and is doing well. He sells all sorts of stuff, including jewelry. It sells for him immediately. The customer satisfaction comments relating to his trading post are all positive.
