Bill Malone has an extensive collection of Navajo weaving and jewelry in his shop. He has more weavings in his personal collection, so visitors interested in a specific type of weaving should ask if he has anything more to show not available in the store.

Obviously Bill is experienced in obtaining and selling authentic Native American goods. His selection is varied. He offers very reasonable prices. My only negative was that the store is a bit dusty.
