We are headed to the beautiful Natural History Museum of Utah this coming weekend for our annual Navajo Weaving Silent Auction and Sale and Trunk Show of Native American Jewelry!
Nearly 200 Navajo Weavings from all areas of the reservation, old and new, will be available for the silent auction and with our “Buy It Now” pricing, any weaving that does not have a bid on it can be purchased at any time during the day.
Hundreds of pieces of authentic traditional and contemporary Indian Jewelry will be offered at a 20 percent discount during the sale which benefits the Museum.
Instead of the usual “History of Navajo Weaving” talk that many of you have heard, I will be telling the story of the development of the different trading post styles and the history behind them. I think you will like hearing some of the wonderful (hard to make up) stories about the people that helped shape the art of Navajo weaving.
For people who have Navajo Weavings and would like to know more about them or find out about repairing them, I will be doing free evaluations. It is always fun to see what people bring in!
Here is the schedule and admission to the Museum is free to the event:
- 10 a.m. until 5 p.m: The Silent Auction and Sale runs in the Canyon area of the Museum. Final Bids at 4 p.m.
- 10 a.m. until 12 p.m: Free Navajo weaving evaluations
- 2 p.m: A talk on the trading post styles with a walk through of the auction weavings.

This is one of our favorite trips every year. If you have not been to the Utah Museum of Natural History, it is one of the most beautiful buildings with some of the best exhibits in the country.
We look forward to seeing everyone in Salt Lake City!
