Banff Indian Trading Post, Banff

Shop for Indian crafts and souvenirs at a store more than a century old at Banff Indian Trading Post. Part store, part museum, this site offers a wide choice of genuine Native Canadian handicrafts, sterling silver jewelry, and pottery. You can purchase American Indian wear as well, like moccasins, mukluks, and fur clothes. The shop showcases lots of taxidermy crafts exhibited along the walls representing local wildlife. Ask the owner of the shop to show you the Merman--a creature of legends that is a mixture of animals; it's located in a tank in the back room and can be easily missed.

  • Such amazing products at really low pricing. I'll be doing a big Christmas shop here. The lady at the till was also so kind and engaging.
  • Neat little trading post across the river from Downtown Banff. It has a lot of neat items and has something for everyone. The free parking is a nice bonus as is the prices in the store. It is a great place to stop for less gift shopy items.
