About Us

St. Brides Trading Post has been in existence since January 1995 and is still operated by the owner and founder, Ernie Chrapko.  

Starting off strictly as a pawn broker, but now with over 20 years’ experience in the business and understanding the needs of his customers, Ernie has gradually changed parts of the operation to include more craft items and regalia requested by his customers for their powwow needs.

We strive to stock those items used for costumes worn at powwows and other events and carry a large supply of beads (size 10 seed beads and 3 cut, and size 11 delica beads), jingles (cones), drums and drum kits, leather, home tan hides (when available) and commercial hides, furs, finished earrings or supplies to make your own.  We also sell Pendleton blankets, towels, Montania Mountain jackets all in the Navaho pattern, Manitobah Mukluks and as well, have aboriginal suppliers that sew some of our moccasins, and supply earrings, roaches, etc. for resale at the Trading Post.


In addition to being a full service retail store we take phone and fax orders. Items can be picked up at the store or will be shipped in the fastest time at the cheapest rate. For questions on styles, prices and availability please call 780-645-2040 and ask any one of our knowledgeable staff for assistance.
