Crazy funky store filled with everything you can imagine. The handmade knives are amazing. Truly functional works of art. The homemade fudge delectable and the healing salves/lip balms are amazing. One of them helped my sunburn fade remarkably! Run by friendly people who take the time to visit with and help the person in front of them. Don't think of... More

Locally owned, they carry mostly products made locally and in Alaska. Rod is quite a character; he once slapped a black bear in the face. Ask his wife to tell you the story. She makes great fudge and he makes some beautiful knives.

What a refreshing surprise to find a shop that is not full of imported products........The merchandise is crafted by over 20 different local artists, some also work shifts in the store and are available to answer your questions.......Prices range from the lower end note cards with pictures of the Haines locale to more expensive carved birch bowls, specialty inlaid wood...
