Juneau shopping- authentic vs made in China

by jleethomas

Am going to visit soon. Is there a way to tell if something is being passed off as authentic or is there a commercial tag stating the item was made in China.
Oh, to be able to buy only authentic merchandise!!!!
thanks for your help.
Looking forward to our visit in August.

Re: Juneau shopping- authentic vs made in China

by OiKnow

Most foreign goods are labeled with the country of origin. Most anything that is mass market and inexpensive is likely to be made outside of the area. Look for shops that specialize in local arts and crafts, the items may not be as pretty, but they will be authentic. I was in Anchorage last June and we are taking a cruise with a stop in Juneau in September.

Re: Juneau shopping- authentic vs made in China

It depends upon what you are looking for. If you want Alaska Native (to us that means Indian, Eskimo, or Aleut) crafts you should look for the "silver hand" label. There are a number of good places to buy the local Indian art/jewelry. Tlingit and Haida tribes are indiginous to S.E. Alaska, so you will mainly find their art, though some shops carry Eskimo work as well. The Juneau State Museum gift shop is always safe. That being said, I am a wholesaler of totemic goods (northwest pewter) manufactured in central america, though designed by local indians transitioning from the prison system. Because it is not "Made in Alaska" I don't qualify for the Silver Hand label. Two very nice boutique-y shops, Kaills Fine Crafts on Front Street, and Ad Lib, on South Franklin St. have good collections with local crafts.

Travel Tips for Juneau

Governor's Mansion

by mht_in_la

Juneau is the capital of Alaska with many state and federal buildings. Half of the population here are related to jobs in the public sector, including Alaska's governor who lives on Calhoun Street and 8th, a few blocks from the state capital and state office buildings. Not sure if the Governor walks to work.

Governor's Mansion was built in 1912, then remodeled in 1983. The architecture is American style with some native touch. The tall white pillars looked like a miniature version of White House. But the totem poles on green lawn reminded me of Alaska's roots in native culture.

Tlingit art is some of the...

by Alaskarain

Tlingit art is some of the most beautiful in the world. It mostly represents local Southeast Alaskan wildlife: the Raven, the Bear, the Salmon. But make sure to buy Made in Alaska things - many downtown shops have fake Tlingit art carved by machine in China.

Pack Light and Casual

by Colewade

Maximum of two per person both of which will pass the carry-on test. Pack for half the trip. Do laundry if you need to, or better don't take anything you wouldn't wear twice and could combine to make a new outfit. Alaska is most definitely not a fashion show. Layers Layers Layers
Good hiking boots or very comfortable walking shoes with good soles and a waterproof shell are essential. You can even get by without a coat except in the winter. I didn't take a coat and I still found myself shedding layers, even after the first sunstantial fall cold snap and snow on the surrounding mountains. Take a fleece sweatshirt and long underwear and you are ready for anything nature has to offer from May to September. Mosquito repellent, though I did'nt wear it or need it in september and we spent a fair amount of time in the woods. Foe interior hikes though muskeg it is a must. Meclizine for motion sickness. (Dramamine non-drowsy) makes you a little sleepy, but not hung over if you take only one. It works. A zoom is really nice for wildlife shots. Binoculars are very useful.

Whale watching Tour

by Mikebb

Late afternoon we took a whale watching tour from Auke Bay marina. Our boat was large with the capacity to seat up to 100 people and plenty of deck space to enjoy the sea air and look for whales.

The boat set off at a high speed, close to 30 knots per hour and went up the Favourite Channel to Berryman Island approximately 20 miles away. We managed to sight some whales but they were at least a mile away and only surfaced for 5 or 10 seconds each time. They looked very small on the horizon and even smaller on my camera which has 12 by zoom.

The whale sightings were a disappointment, however the tour included a very lavish buffet dinner which was some consolation.

The tour included a visit to the Mendenhall Glacier which was excellent, all up cost $160 per person.
