On the Oklahoman map... LittleCrow Trading Post in Tonkawa

Meet local  handmade artists and crafts people in our North Central Oklahoma neighborhood.
I especially love this new store which also serves in community support and shows positivity in hard economical times.

 (In Historic Downtown   119 E. Grand Ave   Tonkawa, OK 74653
20 miles S of KS State Line, 2 miles E of I-35 on Hwy 60, S 1 mile on Hwy 77 to stoplight, Left 1 block) 

Littlecrow Tradingpost is the newest addition to the shopping scene of Tonkawa, a friendly small town where the clocks seem to go a bit slower and  the historic down town area has preserved a 1950s/60s vibe.
Janet and Sonny LittleCrow had their grand opening today and we enjoyed their hospitality during their open house. It was a wonderful October morning with a classic car show downtown which really set a nice retro tone for locals and visitors who strolled on Grand Avenue, the main street.

Their store has been newly renovated and it has been stocked with mainly Native American regalia, but you can also find art, jewelry, leather work and gifts for every taste and budget.  They specialize in custom made clothing for powwows and are very professional leather and fabric artists but yet very friendly and down to earth. They have a wealth of knowledge about authenticity of styles and traditional wearables.
Go stop in Tonkawa on your roadtrip and enjoy awesome "handmadeness" in Oklahoma.
