Skip Maisel’s Indian Jewelry
510 Central Ave SW
Built by Morris Maisel in the late 1930’s, on old Route 66, it is now a Route 66 landmark. During its heyday in the late 40s and early 50s, he employed over 300 craftsmen on premise. It was the largest store of its kind in the world.
After Morris’ death in the 60s, the store was sold and later closed down. His grandson, Skip Maisel, had already spent fifteen years on the reservations buying and selling Indian merchandise. Skip decided to reopen the store in the 1980’s, giving the building a major facelift.
