Lost Colony Trading Post is a Native American owned and operated business that was established in 1985 by Gary and Lottie Hardison in Pembroke NC. What began as a convenience store quickly morphed into one of eastern North Carolina’s largest Native American Arts and Craft stores. For many years, people from all over North Carolina would frequent the “Trading Post” as it was often called, usually on their way to the beach along the two lane highway 74, stopping usually for a bathroom break or refreshment, but then would stay to gaze at the unique items contained within our store.
Now at our new location within the famed “Indian woods” of Bertie County NC, and only a few miles from the recently located site X along the Albemarle Sound where the Lost Colony of Roanoke settled circa 1590, the Trading Post today continues to provide a wide variety of Craft supplies and Artwork from all across Turtle Island. As a business owned by Skaroreh Katenuaka/ Tuscarora Nation of Indians, the Lost Colony Trading Post serves the citizens of SKN as a means of economic development.
