On a small bluff overlooking the Y intersection of Highways 179 and 89A, The Shops at Hyatt Piñon Pointe (101 N. Hwy. 89A, 928/254-1006, www.theshopsathyattpinonpointe.com ) include some interesting independent boutiques along with a few chains, which are quickly creeping into Sedona .
Marchesa’s Fine Shoe Salon (928/282-3212, 10 a.m.–6 p.m. daily) stocks heels, boots, and sandals by high-end designers like Marc Jacobs, Betsey Johnson, Christian LaCroix, and Stuart Weitzman, as well as more affordable options.
George Kelly Fine Jewelers (928/282-8884, 10 a.m.–6 p.m. daily) carries imaginative and contemporary necklaces and rings.
And for a tasty souvenir or gift, pick up a bottle of Arizona vino at The Art of Fine Wine (877/903-9463, 10 a.m.–6 p.m. Mon.–Wed., 10 a.m.–8 p.m. Thurs.–Sun.).
Continue north on Highway 89A into the heart of Uptown to find Cowboy Corral (219 N. Hwy. 89A, 928/282-2040, 10 a.m.–6 p.m. daily). Inside the stone-facade building, wannabe desperados and cowgirls can buy reproduction badges, leather holsters, spurs, riding skirts, and even long-johns.
Try on one of the handmade hats, such as the Big Sky or Lonesome Charley, a beaver-fur creation straight out of the Old West and decorated with original buffalo nickels and turkey hackle feathers.
