Tee Pee Curios

We loved this stop on our partial Route 66 trip. It was so corny but had the best Route 66 souvenirs. The people are also very nice. Stop by and get something for everyone you didn't want to take with you. A great shop and terrific photo op.

Tee Pee Curios

Reminiscent of days gone by, when youngsters would beg Dad to stop at the tee pee for a coonskin cap or colorful chief headdress. Heidi the new owner is very friendly. A great photo op for the family.

Tee Pee Curios on Route 66

It's not the only teepee on Route 66, but this neat little building fused onto a concrete wigwam is part of Tucumcari's continuum of retro-photo opportunities.

We can scarcely imagine how many have said: "My tee pee photo came out awesome! I must journey the length of Route 66 and capture it in ironic-yet-beautiful images. For my coffee table book!"

Such is the magic of Tucumcari.
