Overview

Local Alaskan and Yukon art. Over 100 artist have work in our store. Haines residents Rod and Rhonda Hinson own and operate the store year round. Rod makes custom knives and also turns wood products like pens, stylus', seam rippers and cork screw/bottle stoppers. The best homemade fudge you've ever tasted and healing salves made from local plants. Plan on spending time looking around because every spot in the store is filled with great products.
