black and white photo of Arlene

Arlene was the mother of the current owner, Adam Klein, and a force to be reckoned with. During a time of economic uncertainty and in an era when women didn’t commonly own businesses, she was a true pioneer when she opened her doors in 1978 in the close-knit, Tombstone shopping community. She got her start selling antiques and film before branching out into Native American jewelry and art.

Today you will find that Arlene's has three locations on historic Allen Street. Arlene's Gallery (the original Arlene's location), Arlene's Southwest Trading and Arlene's Southwest Silver and Gold.

We offer a well curated selection of Native American art and jewelry as well as international and local artwork. Our sister store, The Branding Iron, specializes in authentic western wear and is located up the street.

Make a visit to Arlene's & The Branding Iron a special part of your Tombstone experience.
