Trickster Company Alaska

Looking to give something both memorable and thoughtful from Alaska? Perhaps you would like to commemorate the memory of your Alaska vacation? Alaska is home to artisans all over the state, who in recent years have begun making names for themselves around the world. But how do you know what's made in Alaska and what's made my Alaskan artisans? 

 

Made in alaska, alaskan grown, and shop local 

 

With so many outsider manufactures providing the trinkets and wearables in Alaska, it's important to understand that labeling on products or businesses will indicate if it's made in Alaska or an Alaskan business that sells the Alaskan made products. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Look for the "Made in Alaska" polar bear and cub sticker in shop windows and on products to know for sure that you're buying genuine Alaska products. The Blue and yellow "Alaska Grown:" sticker is displayed in support of Alaska's agricultural industry. This sticker comes in handy at farmer's markets, like the popular Saturday market in downtown Anchorage which we highly recommend you explore if time allows on your visit to Anchorage. Though not all products will have this sticker, the "Authentic Native Handicraft from Alaska" sticker will designate products made by Alaska Natives. If you are new to Alaska or spending an extended time and will be in need of a variety of services, Buy Alaska is a wonderful resource for everything from photography to car repair and by frequenting these businesses you ensure your dollars are being invested into Alaska's local economy. 

 

Alaskan Products That Impress

 

You will find all of these products in our homes and served at our tables. We recommend them as quality products and the businesses as places to find handmade, Alaskan items perfect for your holiday gift giving.

PLEASE NOTE: John Hall’s Alaska does not receive any kickbacks or commissions for these recommendations, but if you do purchase something, please let the store know that John Hall’s Alaska sent you!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sitka Lighthouse Co. Store

One of our favorite boutiques is a little place called the Sitka Lighthouse Co. Store. Lucky for us, they have an online store so we can buy birthday gifts all year long- and we do! You will find jewelry, apparel, accessories and home décor that’s hip and modern, but showcases Alaskan textile making. Their local designs are so creative and they keep their inventory moving so you should check back frequently for new merchandise.

 

Alaska Pure Sea Salt 

We've been fans of Alaska Pure Sea Salt, since nearly the beginning. This sea salt is harvested from Alaska sea water and boy is it packed with flavor! Our personal favorite salt to cook with, the Alder Smoked Sea Salt, finishes any meat dish perfectly. It is simply umami.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Alaska Box

The invention of The Alaska Box, a quarterly subscription service that delivers Alaska artisan goods of all kinds to your doorstep, is a gift you'll be excited to give and receive. The dream child of Laura, owner of another favorite store of ours, Caribou Crossings, the Alaska Box promotes Alaskan artisan across the state! For $49.99 plus tax and shipping, you will receive a surprise selection of home goods, jewelry, cosmetics, collectibles and yummy treats made in Alaska by family businesses. You can’t find this stuff in just any store, which is why we think you’ll agree that this price tag is low for the value found in the box. Our most recent box contained 10 items, accompanied by a descriptive card about each business. 

 

Sitka Salmon Shares

We are frequently asked about the best ways to bring home or ship Alaskan seafood to the lower 48. While catching it yourself is an experience we wouldn’t want you to pass up, when fishing isn’t an option, shipping some fresh catch from Sitka Salmon Shares is a great alternative. You can even read about the fisherman you are supporting by owning your own salmon share. Make your share selection and support small, local, Alaska fisheries, not the usual large, international fishing operators. When you buy from these guys, your money stays American and supports Alaskan families. First enroll in a membership, then pick which shares are the best fit for your family. Get the gift of fresh fish all year long! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Trickster Company

Looking to wear something that fits well, feels good, and gets comments? Trickster Company athletic clothes will fit the bill.  Designed to represent Alaska Native artistry and Alaska industry themes, the colorful patterns they offer will impress you. Clothes even come in kids sizes.  We have personally tested out the pants and tops, but they offer a variety of eye-catching jewelry and accessories for a variety of lifestyles.
