There are many beautiful things to look at. Some well known Alaskan artists (we bought a print from a favorite of ours). There were some discounted items upstairs. We were pleased with the service we received.

This is a beautiful store with high end, well made native Alaskan crafts. We found very unusual, unique art. The staff were friendly and very helpful - even showed us a video of a bear that had been in her driveway that morning!

Some places are not advertised on the ships. I hear, it is because they don't want to pay an extra fee to be advertised and pay expensive marketing materials. That's OK because the savings go back to us, the tourists. This little shop has lots...More

Do not miss this shop if you love art of any kind. It is definitely local works and pieces. It is not adjacent to the water so you will have to navigate to a street that runs perpendicular to the water front and furthest away...More
