Know Who You Are Buying From- It is important to go to a reputable dealer who has a relationship with the artist. Make sure they sell only authentic, handmade Native American art. Get a written guarantee that the item you are buying is a genuine piece of Native American art. Learn which artists create pieces that you enjoy and that are authentic with respect to materials and process. Ask if you can return the piece if you are not satisfied with it. A good place to start would be The Heard Museum in North Scottsdale, or the Old Territorial Indian Art store in downtown Scottsdale.

nice gifts and decorations. You can spend $35 or $35,000. Just know what the purpose of your purchse is. Investment art?  Are you a collector of a certain favorite artist? Souvenir?

Find out What You like and Buy It- collecting Native American art in Carefree should be enjoyable! Look for pieces that stand out and connect with you personally. Once you’ve bought your first piece of Native American art, it is a good idea to document your purchase for insurance reasons and also so that you can follow the artist or tribe that makes the kind of art you like. It is good to understand what makes a Kachina doll well-constructed or what makes a piece of jewelry a quality piece. Understand the art form.
