The Trading Post is always a fun stop for the kids as well as adults. The kids enjoyed looking around, but there wasn't that much for them, so it's a nice quick stop.

I have been visiting here for years. The store has unique items and I got my motorcycle rain gear here. Great gift stuff, unique. But wow, this year the place is way different. Enjoyed the new area, had some drinks at the bar. Nice bathroom. Family run. Will go again next year.

A fun place to visit. He has a bit of everything, from vintage original postcards, mocassins, Harley paraphenalia, souvenirs and on and on. Kids love it. AND, as of May 2016 he is expanding! Adding a patio and more. Worth a visit.

In the little town of Utica I expected this to have Indian themed items as well as the typical "gift sore" items to pacify younger kids. What didn't expect were the swords, knives and leather goods.

This place is always interesting but it is a bit shabby and most of the stock has been there a long time. Even our grandson had a hard time finding a teat that hadn't been handled a bunch of times.

They sell such a variety in this shop that just about anyone would have fun looking! The service is very good. The men who work here are very nice, friendly and helpful. When you come in there is jewelry and little animal statues. (I love and collect black bears and have bought a few here). The "black hills" gold jewelry... More

This is a funky little shop that really does have something for everyone! There are toys for the kiddies, and jewelry and leathers, and Minnetonka Moccasins, anddoll, and indian collectibles. It is definetly not a fancy store though. Just lots of great stuff at great prices! Very worth a visit. Don't be fooled by the exterior, there is neat stuff... More
