To some, we are a Native American art gallery; to others, we are a trading post reminiscent of days gone by. On the corner of 6th Street and Main in downtown Rapid City, Prairie Edge stands two stories high and stretches out for half a block as a brick, wood, and glass storefront that has been restored to its original 19th century glory. Inside, the hardwood floors and polished cabinetry bring to mind the spirit of the Old West, while the distinct smell of sweetgrass and soft sound of a Lakota flute evoke the mystique of the Plains Indian culture.

Praire Edge is most likely the most comprehensive collection modern Native American art, literary collection, music, and crafts. They have the world's largest collection of glass beads...trade beads you won't find elsewhere. Their collection of unique, rare gift items is stunning. Add to this, clothing items unlike anything else! Pendelton wool blankets and other items, huge collections of handmade items... More

Prairie Edge has the most incredible display of Native art and history I have seen in western South Dakota. Located on Main Street in downtown Rapid City, this landmark store is within easy walking distance of restaurants, shops and the equally famous Alex Johnson Hotel. Don't miss this iconic Native American treasure.

Prairie Edge has a huge selection of items - from nice local gifts to a gallery of high-end items made by Native American artists and craftspeople as well as books and music. The attached Sioux Trading Post has botanicals, beads, foods, craft supplies, and affordable art made by local craftspeople.

I live near Rapid City and this is the one place I always send people when they visit. They have a great collection on books about the region, American Indian themed merchandise, and American Indian themed art in the gallary.
