NileGuide Expert tip:
A great place for small gifts.
The White Buffalo has been in downtown Truckee for years and sells beautiful handmade Native American jewelry and other crafts. Their huge selection includes unique gifts, Native music CDs, sage and sweetgrass smudging items, Southwestern food and Native paintings. They primary sell turquoise and quartz jewelry, but gold and silver and other gems are offered as well.
They feature items from artists such as Federico, Lesley Ann Webb and Ray Tracey. Some of the pieces are very expensive, but there are items in every price category. The store is located in downtown Truckee across from the train station and the staff are friendly and knowledgable about the artists.
