“on the border of Arizona & New Mexico”

Yellowhorse LTD, Lupton, Arizona, Navajoland USAToday, located in Arizona at the border of Arizona and New Mexico at Interstate 40. The Yellowhorse Family actively welcomes the traveling tourist from their Navajo-Owned trading post on the Navajo reservation. It all started in the 1950's from a roadside stand that the Yellowhorse family started selling Navajo rugs and petrified wood to the passer-by vacationers. Traveling the route 66 was an adventure in itself, and stops were far in between. So the need to stop and stretch along with the gnawing curiosity to meet with the Navajo family was the ingredient for success and great memories for everyone.In the 60's, Juan and Frank Yellowhorse, tidy up some at the newly constructed trading post, not far from the rug stand. The addition of gas pumps selling Shell gas, and new signs along the Route 66, were constructed.

Don't let the bright facade fool you. My wife and I stopped here. They had a good collection of jewelry and some Navajo pottery. Besides the roadside inventory of modestly priced necklaces and rugs, Alvin Yellowhorse (and others in his family) are jewelry designers. Have the shop keeper guide you to the best in house or Alvin can do custom designs to add to your turquoise collection.

Stopped by for photos but did not buy anything, somewhat of a tourist trap. Definitely stop by to look at all the attractions and oddly placed animals.

Roadtrippers directions are wrong. Just stay on I40 and you’ll see it. Roadtrippers had us exit one exit early and drive around in circles. Got back on 40 East and there it was.
