This impressive sky-blue turquoise derives its name from the mountain silhouette of a ‘sleeping beauty’ seen directly above the turquoise mine located north of Globe, Arizona. While the mine closed in 2012, the value of this highly sought after stone has greatly increased.


The Pickle Barrel Trading Post is proud to feature world-renowned Sleeping Beauty, as well as other coveted varieties of remarkable turquoise such as Kingman, Royston, Bisbee, Morenci, Carico Lake, Nevada Green, and many others in a curated collection.

Welcome to Our Trading Post in Globe, AZ

The old warehouse that sits alongside the railroad tracks at the south end of Broad Street in Historic Downtown Globe, has become a Top Draw for visitors and locals alike. Originally, a warehouse for the Old Dominion Copper Co., today’s owners purchased the 8,000 square foot landmark to develop a ‘destination business’—The Pickle Barrel Trading Post. Today, it is one of the premier trading posts in the entire Southwest.

Kelly says “When we reflect upon 15 years of creating and operating this one-of-a-kind enterprise, it is really gratifying. We take great pride in building a business that truly has become a ‘destination’, right here in Jim and Kevin’s hometown of Globe, AZ. But most gratifying are the thousands of genuine compliments bestowed upon our shop and employees, from folks who travel far and wide. The pleasurable experiences that visitors express are very special and rewarding.”
