Last Arizona Scorpion Paperweight Maker Retires

Posted by Christina on 29th Dec 2018

Sibley's West is proud to feature a quintessential Arizona souvenir - the scorpion paperweight - made by Paul Way in Holiday Village. Paul is the last maker of this classic handiwork in the state, and he is retiring at age 83.

John interviewed Paul and wrote an article about him featured in the Arizona Republic last week.

Without another Arizona supplier, our current inventory of scorpion and tarantula paperweights will be our last. We hope someone takes Paul up on his offer to teach the trade and keeps this Arizona tradition alive!
