Walrus ivory jewelry, woodwork, paintings, photos. All very Alaskan without being at all tacky. Prices generally reasonable; easy to find very nice gifts at a decent price for someone who appreciates real local art.

Ptarmigan Arts features the beautiful works of local artists, who work in a wide range of media (wood, ceramics, textiles, oils/watercolors, stained glass, weavings, photo images, etc.). This is a wonderful gallery where you can find a unique gift, & a momento of your Homer visit too. They are open all year long, 7 days per week -- and we always take our visitors to this nice place. Well worth your time to visit Ptarmigan Arts!

Unique and intriguing pieces of art - one usually finds its way home with me. That means - affordable. Also within walking distance of the Alaska Wildberry Products candy store :)

We loved this store! We bought gifts to take home as well as a couple things for ourselves. If you get tired of looking at the same old Alaskan souvenirs, you'll find this store is like a breath of fresh air!
