Lone Eagle Outdoors in Bison Ranch was recently acquired by Karron and Dave Carnahan, long time retailers of the Emporium, a popular shop at Bison Ranch for many years. The Carnahans’ Emporium is known for selling a large assortment of gift items for both tourists and residents alike. There is a large toy section with unique quality items, purses, décor, souvenirs, cooking utensils, spice mixes, jams from Oregon, and on and on. There’s really too many things to mention them all. If you’re looking for a military service related gift – they have a section for that as well. Karron and Dave are planning to add a new Christmas merchandise section at the Emporium and will be holding a special Christmas in July event. They will be giving away a $100 shopping spree for their Christmas merchandise for use in November just in time for the holidays.
But the big announcement is their newest venture – they’re rebranding the Lone Eagle to the Lone Eagle Trading Post to reflect the emphasis on their new line of Native American arts and jewelry. Their Navajo pottery is handmade, numbered and signed by the artist. Their new Visitor’s Center section will have daily fresh popcorn for your shopping pleasure, cold drinks, snacks and ice available for sale.
Hunting and fishing supplies including live bait, ammo, knives, and hunting apparel are still on hand as well as the availability of hunting and fishing licenses. They will make special orders so be sure to ask them if there is something you’re looking for that isn’t in stock. Coming soon will be camping, ATV and RV supplies.
There’s a Harley Davidson section of wall art, T-shirts and merchandise. They’ll be adding more gift items, cabin décor and southwest art, including Mary Hauser’s bird photography. “We’ll be adding new things every month,” Karron said.
It was good to see that Donna Doss has returned to Lone Eagle after being sorely missed because of illness. On the day I visited, Donna was joined by Will Richardson and his wife Christy who were all working to organize and stock merchandise preparing the shop for a May 4th opening. Lone Eagle Trading Post will have their Grand Opening on Memorial weekend so be sure to add that to your must do list that weekend. Both Lone Eagle and Emporium have prize drawings every month, creating a fun shopping experience for all.
