“largest Brick & Mortar Kaleidoscope store in the world featuring hundreds of artists”
NELLIE BLY is a unique gallery of kaleidoscopes and art glass located in historic Jerome, Arizona since 1988. We are the largest dealer of kaleidoscopes in the world and feature over 90 kaleidoscope artists. Most of our scope makers live in the United States. We also have a large selection of hand-made marbles and dichroic jewelry.
We have now been the Nellie Bly twice (about two years apart). If you are driving through the area within a 2 hour radius, make a detour!!!!! Not only is Jerome a charming little hippie town (re)built on the back of artists, but they also have delightful little pubs and burger joints. But back to Nellie Bly - the kaleidoscopes are unimaginable - I would try to describe them, but know I can't. They have everything ranging from a few dollars to $30K+. Some are tiny and can fit in your pocket and others probably weigh 800+ pounds and are 8 feet tall. It is truly like being able to touch, pick up, and play with anything you want in a contemporary art museum. We purchased one of the cheaper kaleidoscopes a few years ago and it is still our most prized souvenir we have ever picked up (and we have A LOT!). GO!
