Our journey in retail began over 20 years ago when we both left conventional jobs to take a year off to travel. While exploring the landscape on a trip to the southwest, we met many artists and developed a passion for Native American jewelry and crafts. We decided to try selling the many treasures we discovered and named our business “Coyote Impressions” after our southwestern inspiration. For our first few years, we sold at crafts fairs, colleges and just about any place that would allow us to set up a table with our wares. After developing a loyal customer following, we opened our gift shop located in Arlington, Massachusetts in 1994. We initially planned to sell Native American jewelry and crafts but quickly realized that we would have to expand our product line beyond southwest jewelry and gifts for our business to succeed. While we continue to carry Native American jewelry, dream catchers, Zuni fetishes, and southwestern crafts, we added pottery from Mexico, Russian nesting dolls, Judaica, handbags and wallets, Boston Red Sox, New England Patriots and Boston Bruins novelties, children‘s toys, and numerous other interesting and creatively designed products. We are widely known for our beautiful artisan jewelry. Unique and handcrafted, we sell necklaces, earrings and bracelets made from seaglass, dichroic glass, resin, sterling silver and Austrian crystals. We usually have over a 1000 pairs of earrings to select from! To quote one of our customers, we have "an eclectic, fun and interesting mix of products - something for every taste and personality."
Enjoy your shopping experience!
