Do you have someone in your life who is nearly impossible to buy for? Maybe you have an out-of-state friend who loves the Centennial State? Are you an out-of-stater who wants to stock up on Colorado merchandise? If you answered yes to any of the above, you will want to check out the massive Garden of the Gods Trading Post in Colorado Springs.
Located near - you guessed it - the Garden of the Gods, the Garden of the Gods Trading Post is a massive 25,000-square-foot store that is billed as being Colorado's "largest, oldest and best gift shop and art gallery."
Established in 1929, the Garden of the Gods Trading Post was the brainchild of Charles E. Strausenback, who operated several souvenir stands around the Garden of the Gods Park before opening the iconic Trading Post that is still in business today.
Since opening his shop full of Native American-made art and merchandise, the Garden of the Gods Trading Post has grown to an incredible 90,000+ items, including Colorado-made food and condiments...
...Unique home decor...
...And tons of tourist apparel and goods.
As with the original Garden of the Gods Trading Post, you can still find a giant assortment of Native American goods as well, including artwork, pottery, and jewelry.
In addition to all of the above, the Garden of the Gods Trading Post is also home to a delicious cafe complete with the World Famous Buffalo Burgers, ice cream, coffee, and more!
