About Sibley’s West
Sibley’s West: The Chandler And Arizona Gift Shop Is The Creation Of Michelle And John Wolfe.
Longtime residents, the Wolfes thought downtown Chandler needed some additional retail outlets to complement its selection of restaurants and vibrant nightlife.
The idea of a gift shop had some potential. Having visited many shops in Phoenix, including ones in the airport, the Wolfes were disappointed to find so many items and souvenirs made overseas. But at some shops and local festivals the couple encountered attractive gifts produced by Arizona craftsmen and artists. They also sought to identify larger manufacturers that call Arizona home, coming across firms like Original Dirt Shirts, Armadilla Wax Works and Cheri’s Desert Harvest.
Embracing a mantra of “From Arizona,” the Wolfes sought out suppliers while arranging to rent space in downtown Chandler. The vision culminated with the opening of the gift shop in December 2010.
We are located in Historic Downtown Chandler on San Marcos Place. There is plenty of FREE parking in the area, including the new Oregon Street garage just to our south.
Look for the copper ostrich out front!
