A Grand Giftshop

The Bullion Plaza Cultural Center & Museum Giftshop has many quality items that will bring your gift-giving to a fine art. Our gifts are beautiful, meaningful and reflect our community’s heritage. Bullion’s excellent selection rivals that of other Arizona museum gift shops. We look forward to your visit.

Our Giftshop came to life from a suggestion by one of our past Board Members. Bullion had many items … from books to jewelry and minerals … all for sale. All these items were scattered around the lobby in individual cases and on shelves. There was a distinct lack of continuity and it was difficult for our visitors to focus on all the items.

So to correct this … we moved all the items for sale, and display cases, into one space and relocated the office to the 2nd floor. The result is the new gift shop.

This is an evolving space … with an interesting mix of items for sale. Many of the items are made through the vision of our local artists. Our Books comprise topics from local history to history of Arizona and the Southwest. From Frank Lloyd Wright to the Pleasant Valley War … from hand made jewelry to unique minerals. All of this and more … we have gathered for your enjoyment, something to take away … more than just a memory.

We hope you enjoy this unique space as much as we are developing it for you. And we hope you will enjoy watching it grow and change.

James Kidd: A Prospector’s Soul

James Kidd, a copper prospector and visionary spiritualist, worked and lived in the Globe-Miami and Phoenix areas in Arizona. Born in New York in 1879, the lure of a fortune in minerals brought Kidd west in 1920. He worked for the Miami Copper Company as a Pumpman and also at the Old Dominion Mine in Globe.
