Artist's at Work

Scottsdale tourists reveled in the novelty of being able to watch artists at work and then purchase their wares and they found the fact that the items they bought were handmade particularly refreshing. It was the tourists' delight in the handmade and unique that made the specialty shops all along Fifth Avenue flourish. However, Scottsdale's reliance on tourists also meant that the downtown emptied out considerably when tourist season ended.
