Artists have made Jerome’s name in the 21st century. By all means, stop at the Jerome Artists Cooperative Gallery, 502 Main St. (www.jeromeartistscoop.com; tel. 928/639-4276), on the west side of the street where Hull Avenue and Main Street fork as you come uphill into town. It’s a bright and airy place with room after room of respectable art and craftwork. Don’t miss the eclectic offerings—everything from surplus Russian army and navy uniforms to feather boas—at the House of Joy, 416 N. Hull Ave. (tel. 928/634-5339), which styles itself as a “brothel boutique” after the business that occupied the space in the bad old days. Someone’s going to want to stop in at Copper Country Fudge, 337 Main St. (tel. 928/634-4040).
A little farther up the road, the Raku Gallery, 250 Hull Ave. (tel. 928/639-0239) has gallery space on two floors and walls of glass across the back, with views of the red rocks of Sedona in the distance. Don’t miss Nellie Bly, 136 Main St. (www.nellieblyscopes.com; tel. 928/634-0255), a shop full of handmade kaleidoscopes. A couple of doors away you’ll find Pura Vida Gallery, 501 School St. (www.puravidagalleryjerome.com; tel. 928/634-0937), which has a fascinating and eclectic selection of fine art, jewelry, and unusual Southwest-inspired furniture and fashions.
