Located on the southwest edge of Garden of the Gods, near the Balanced Rock, the Garden of the Gods Trading Post has welcomed visitors for over 100 years. Browse through 25,000 square feet and over 90,000 different gifts, souvenirs, jewelry, and locally-made art. Whether you need t-shirts and coffee cups or a one-of-kind piece of art to remember your trip to Colorado, the Trading Post is the place to find it. Enjoy lunch on their beautiful outdoor patio at the Balanced Rock Café or relax at the Kissing Camels Coffee Shop with a Starbuck’s latte or dessert. The kids will love mining for gemstones in their big back yard, and you’ll love finding something for everyone on your list without breaking the bank!


NO WAY! We love well behaved four-legged family at the Garden of the Gods Trading Post. Please keep them on a leash and clean up after them.
The front room was built in 1929, but original owner sold hand carved trinkets at a small stand near the Kissing Camels starting in 1910, when he was only 12 years old! Since then, the Garden of the Gods Trading Post has been owned by only two families.
Unfortunately no, we have so many items and so many of them are one-of-a-kind items, keeping up with an e-site is nearly impossible. You can call us however, and we’re happy to email you photos and ship to you!
In the Balanced Rock Cafe we have burgers, including our famous Buffalo Burger, sandwiches, wraps, and salads. Be sure to try the house-made chips! In the Kissing Camels Coffee Shop, we serve a wide selection of Starbuck’s coffee and drinks, ice-cream from the Old Colorado City Creamery, and several other desserts. In the main part of the store, you’ll find 30 different flavors of fudge that we make in-house, a huge selection of local jams, jellies, hot-sauces and candies.
