When I am in Sedona I love to walk around the shopping villages and galleries. You will be surprised at the number of galleries in this town. Sedona is an artistic community and the galleries are bursting with local talent as well as talent from around the world.
Sedona has five shopping areas which are classified by its location and history. First is the original uptown, which is a favorite of tourists. This is also there the Visitor's center is where you can stop and pick up a variety of brochures, maps and advice from the great staff. Lots of little quaint shops, places to eat and still lots of great views. West Sedona, which boasts Talaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village which is built to resemble an old Mexican villiage. Next is the the Hwy 179 corridor, which includes Hillside and Hozho, which is the main art and gallery district; and lastly Village of Oakcreek. This community is south of Sedona. If you come into Sedona from Phoenix, you will pass through VOC (Village of Oakcreek) first.
My favorite shopping area is Talaquepaque. With it's old world charm and huge Sycamore trees and galleries and wonderful little shops and boutiques, it is an experience in itself. Even if you do not enjoy shopping, a trip to Talaquepaque is a must.

Each shopping area has so much to offer so make a day of it. Grab your bottle of water and put on your comfortable shoes and spend a day or two just wandering the galleries and shops along the way. It will be the most fun exercise that you have gotten in a long time.
There are plenty of great little places to eat along the way so you can stop and grab a bite to eat and take a break from the shopping if you want.
No matter which shopping area you choose to visit. You won't be disapointed.
