A Must Stop Shop In West Yellowstone
Mar 2021 • Family
Any trip to West Yellowstone always includes a trip to a gift shop. If you only visit one this is one is a must. They have a little bit of everything from standard t-shirts and souvenirs to hand carved custom knives, had carved Native American figures, to jewelry and so much more. The staff is super friendly and always good for a story or two about the area. Every West Yellowstone trip includes a couple stops at cradleboard.

The best

T-shirt stores are common in West Yellowstone but this one has so much more. In fact, I’d call it a rock and curio store that happens to have t-shirts. I regularly come here to buy pins once or twice a year. The shop seems to have a little bit of everything.

NOT FAMILY FRIENDLY
Aug 2019 • Family
NOT FAMILY FRIENDLY. Extremely rude older man behind the counter kicked my family out as the younger kids had pressed the "press here"-labeled plush toys that were being displayed at their eye level. My kids were in the act of putting them back and had not touched any of the pretty rocks or collectibles as they know how to behave (mostly). No warning, just a sudden and very rude "out” with no explanation or humanity. When asked what was wrong he mumbled something about touching inventory. He wouldn't give his name when asked and just kept grumbling ”out”. We have been repeat customers for years (my wife literally wearing the last ring she bought here). I'm glad he decided to be so rude right as we were buying some jewelry. He not only lost that sale that would more than have made up for any potential issue with wearing out a display battery, but we will NEVER return to such a family-unfriendly store as long as this man works there. Too bad, because the jewelry lady was wonderful and only had to accept the card we were handing her to close her sale. Looking at other reviews, it seems we are not the only ones who have been treated this way by this man who is obviously unfit for the stresses of family oriented retail. May as well post a sign saying CHILDREN NOT WELCOME until this man is gone.

An amazing gift shop, with quality products.
Oct 2018 • Friends
My friend and I came out to visit Yellowstone Park, and while driving around town, decided to stop at the Cradleboard. What a fantastic store, with the most amazing lady behind the counter. Jewelry, beautiful selection of quality knives, souveniers of all kinds, with amazing prices. Purchased some beautiful jewelry for my friend, who in turn convinced me to buy a very unusual knife, and an inlaid ring, type and stone I have never seen. We left there feeling very well taken care of, and very satisfied with our purchases. If you're in West Yellowstone, stop in, you'll not regret it.

A kind of nice small town shop. Lots of little things. Some cool knifes. It's a tourist shop but it's worth a quick look

"Indian Jewelry"
May 2017 • Couples
My wife found a pair of native Indian sterling silver earrings with a gold filled buffalo on them. She was pleasantly surprised at the price and considered the service she received as outstanding. If you are looking for Indian jewelry, this is the place to visit in West Yellowstone, Montana.

Average shop

I stopped in here about 7 at night. One lady seemed nice. One guy seemed crabby. The selection was ok. Nothing really special. It was ok.

Fantastic customer service!! Delightful lady checked us out!!--
Jun 2016 • Couples
This was one of my favorite stores in West Yellowstone!! I got a great long sleeved t shirt there and dragged my husband back to purchase some pretty earrings. I wanted to get a couple pairs for my friends and myself and had a hard time choosing--the lovely lady who checked us out gave us a small discount. She really seemed to enjoy working there and was also a jewelry fan--it was like meeting my kindred spirit!! :-)

Such a fun shop!
Oct 2015 • Family
Every October we stop at the cradleboard. I like to buy hat pins to give to tour organizers and look for interesting minerals. Past tour clients have purchased up Obsidian knife blades here after seeing mine. But there are also fun T-shirts and all kinds of interesting and curious gifts. The owners are always so friendly that it is a delight to shop here.
