Banff Indian Trading Post, Banff

#4 of 9 in Shopping in Banff National Park
Gift & Specialty Shop Shopping
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.

  • This store is surprisingly well stocked of handmade Indian items, not just Chinese-made souvenir junk (though they have a few of those near the front if you insist). I highly recommend the moccasins. ...  more »
  • Our first nations deserve more respect than this. To see feather headdress for sale is not appropriate. To our indigenous peoples, these are earned and sacred, not for sale for fun. Very disappointed ...  more »
  • Well worth a visit if you are in Banff. Beautiful pieces made by people of the First Nations, quality is excellent and prices very reasonable. Not your usual souvenirs , really interesting and classy....  more »

  • As you would image a good deal of souvenirs but they do have some remarkable hand knit sweaters, beautiful jackets with rabbit fur collars!!!
  • I saved Christmas and $100 with one phone call.. I was so desperate for a very specific pair of mitts for a gift. I needed them by the next evening but I was in Calgary working. I was willing to do almost anything. Turns out I did basically nothing because Karen took the info, called me right back, and sent them same day courier to my office. I had them by noon. And still $100 cheaper than online. WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE?
  • A MUST to visit if you're in Banff. They have incredible items for sale here and I'm sure you'll find something you love that you weren't even looking for. Very unique items along with some higher priced quality goods.
  • Interesting store lots of stuff.
  • My family has been coming here since the 50s and this is one of the best shops in Banff.
