The stores carry an assortment of jewelry, custom knives, alpaca accessories, custom wood carvings, souvenirs, etc. We have unique items that allow visitors to commemorate their once-in-a-lifetime trip to Alaska. But it's more than the stuff... it's the people that make us different.

Most of our employees are returning - but we are looking for a couple more. Specifically, we look for some unique, fun folks who want to explore and discover the meaning of life, as we greet travelers on their journeys.
