The Case Trading Post, the Wheelwright Museum’s sales shop, was built in 1975 as a replica of a Navajo Reservation trading post with a generous donation from W. Lyman Case in memory of his wife Margaret Menough Case, a former trustee of the museum.
Our shop features vintage and contemporary Native American art by over 450 well-known masters and emerging artists. Come see our wide selection of pottery, jewelry, textiles, baskets, fetishes, paintings, kachinas, books, and more. Knowledgeable staff will assist the first-time buyer or the seasoned collector. For any assistance, please email the shop at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 1-505-982-4636, X.110, or 1-800-607-4636, X.110

The Case Trading Post Team
The Case Trading Post team is comprised of CTP Manager Ken Williams; sales associates Virginia Bixler, Patricia Brown, and Constance Campbell; staff members Lynn Macri and Neebinnaukzhik Southall, and a dedicated group of volunteers.
The Case Trading Post hosts special events during the year, including artist demonstrations, sales exhibitions, book signings, and talks. The first Saturday of every month at 10:15 a.m. (excluding August), the Case Trading Post hosts “Looking at Indian Art,” an informal presentation/discussion on a variety of topics including textiles, pottery, jewelry, baskets, kachinas, and the work of specific artists.
In the latter half of August, while Indian Market week is taking place downtown, we hold our annual “Old Friends, New Faces,” a multi-day event showcasing works by featured artists on Thursday and artist demonstrations on Friday.

Our knowledgeable Case Trading Post Manager Ken Williams periodically features especially striking and notable works of art that come through the Case Trading Post as part of his Manager’s Selections. The Case is proud to carry work by many highly respected artists in the Native art world, and a number of items we carry include works made especially for the Case Trading Post.
