Hi,

We recently returned from several days on the road Including stops at the Hubbell Trading Post in Ganada, Arizona and Bill Gordon’s Fine Navajo Weavings in Telluride Colorado.

Hubbell trading Post was established in the 1800s and to this day has fine examples of Navajo arts; up in Telluride, Bill has wonderful weavings including one of the largest Yei pieces I have ever seen.
