Turneys Trading Co.
Turney’s Trading Co. was started by Alva Turney in 1960 as an Indian Trading Post specializing in Native American silver and turquoise jewelry, rugs, pottery, baskets, kachinas, and fetishes. Within 15 years of its opening, “Turney’s” grew to include brothers Keith and Irl Wallace.

With the passing of Alva Turney in 1989, Turney’s Trading Co., has been continued by the Wallace family. Recently, Keith’s two sons, Nolan and Austin have also become involved in this multi-generational, family-owned business that has become one of the largest wholesalers of Native American arts and crafts in the Southwestern U.S.
Turney's specializes predominately in wholesale Native Arts and Crafts but also contributes to downtown's classic Route 66 atmosphere with a unique sign of a Native American that appears to be resting his foot on the wording.
