Pistols and Petticoats

JEROME - Six days after moving Pistols and Petticoats from uptown Sedona to Jerome, owners John and Laurie Maeder were set up and shooting old-time studio portraits.

Having operated Pistols and Petticoats in Sedona since 2012, the Maeders moved in February to a studio with a larger shooting space, says John Maeder.

Pistols and Petticoats shoots flattering, heirloom-quality professional portraits that transport their customers back to the 1800s.

Pistols and Petticoats also offers Chromaluxe dye sublimation prints of various sizes, and sells Native American jewelry, salt crystal lamps, blown glass and textiles.

Also known as Dirty Gertie's (named after their dog Gertie), Pistols and Petticoats is located at 302 Hull Ave., next to the Jerome visitor center. Pistols and Petticoats is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call (928) 282-0029, email designupload@outlook.com or visit https://www.facebook.com/pistolsandpetticoatsotp.

Crystal Lattice

CAMP VERDE - When Diane Martin first opened Crystal Lattice in Camp Verde, she said she hoped her gift shop would do well enough to eventually need a larger unit.

It only took Crystal Lattice six months to outgrow its space.

In October 2013, proprietors Diane and Robert Martin opened Crystal Lattice across from the Wingfield Plaza. Now located the space formerly occupied by Healthy Thymes, Crystal Lattice offers its customers a myriad of chocolates, Himalayan salt lamps and candleholders, American-made soy candles, jewelry, a collection of feng shui, scarves, hats, masks, nouveau light switch covers and snacks.

Crystal Lattice has filled some of the additional square footage with tables for its customers to play a game of checkers or chess. Patrons are also welcome to bring a book to read, or to eat their lunch in Crystal Lattice, said Diane Martin.

Crystal Lattice is at 545 S. Main St. in Camp Verde. Hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday. For more information, call (928) 567-1212 or email: info@crystalattice.com.

Azalea's Furnishings and Treasures

CAMP VERDE - Increased window lighting and a corner unit are two reasons why family-run Azalea's Furnishings and Treasures has moved two units within the Wingfield Plaza.

Now in a corner unit, Azalea's Furnishings and Treasures is an eclectic mix of antiques, apparel, housewares, imported dish wear, jewelry, new furnishings and religious collectibles.

"We feel more a home," says Amy Zale of Azalea's new window-friendly location at space 111. "I love the light. I love the atmosphere."

Before the move, Azalea's furniture offerings were more modern.

"We found that our customer base is more vintage," Zale says. "We still have things that are modern. But most of our things have been loved before."

Jane and Richard Juarez help daughter Amy Zale operate Azalea's. Jane Juarez describes Azalea's as more "rustic, Victorian, shabby chic,"

Azalea's Furnishings and Treasures is located at 564 S. Main St., suite 111. Store hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday through Saturday. Zale can be reached at (928) 254-9833.

Zale also operates in-home custom T-shirt business Screen It or Bling It.
