Phoenix Magazine selects Sibley’s West ‘Best of the Valley’

Posted by John Wolfe on 17th Aug 2018

(Chandler, AZ) – Sibley’s West: The Chandler and Arizona Gift Shop has been recognized as the “Best Local-Only Shop” in the Valley of the Sun by Phoenix Magazine.

In its annual edition for 2018, the Editor’s Choice cited Sibley’s West’s variety of Arizona-made gift items, from scented candles from Prescott to mesquite cutting boards from Bisbee to cactus candy from Tucson. The magazine also noted the East Valley store’s array of State Forty Eight shirts, hand-painted ornaments, soaps and lotions, and hot sauces and rubs.

Owners Michelle and John Wolfe opened Sibley’s West in December 2010 in historic Downtown Chandler with gift items from 55 Arizona suppliers.

Now approaching eight years in business, and following an expansion that doubled the store’s size, that number is over 220 suppliers.

“We want to thank Phoenix Magazine for the tremendous recognition,” Michelle Wolfe said. “We accept it on behalf of all of our great Arizona artists and small businesses, without whom we wouldn’t have a store, and our great staff, which loves to share their stories.”

Sibley’s West is located at 72 S. San Marcos Place in Chandler. It is open 363 days a year.

The store also maintains a website for online sales at www.sibleyswest.com and a YouTube Channel at www.youtube.com/sibleyswest that boasts videos with more than 150 Arizona artists.
