The Trading Post: Polar Bear Hats & Mittens @ The Trading Post
There is a "trading post" at the far end of town that has some cute touristy type things. It's really one of the only gift shops and worth a trip. This is also one of the places you can book helicopter rides and they have a public bath room.
What to buy: There are a few funny t-shirts, etc. I ended up buying a polar bear hat and mitten set before we set off for the tundra. They were a hit and really made our pictures (I fit right in!). They were a bit on the expensive side, but I'd buy them again. Oh, and they make great puppets if there's a lull between bears and you're getting bored.
What to pay: Higher than average prices, but it is hard to get stuff all the way up there!
Various: Gift Shops
The half dozen or so gift shops along Kelsey Blvd are all similar to one another and basically for the tourist have the normal "made in china" Chuchill transfer T shirts etc.
Clearly being so far North and with a limited amount of tourists, it is understandable that the ranges of items are not that great
