    Alaska Wildberry Products: A nice alternative to Harry & David

    Alaskan Wildberry Products, Homer, AK

    Homer is the location of the only Alaskan Wildberry Products store outside of Anchorage. (Anchorage has two.) This store carries everything from tacky souvenirs to kitchen items to delicious candies and jellies. We purchased some delicious blueberry and fireweed jellies, chocolates (including chocolates with fireweed jelly centers - mmmmm).

    What to buy: When I got home, I needed to send a gift to a friend in Seattle, so I went online and sent them a basket of goodies form Alaskan Wildberry Products. I was very impressed! I ordered the basket on Wednesday, and my friends in Seattle received it on Thursday! THAT is excellent customer service.

    Coal Point Seafood: So you are not a fisherman

    Alaskan Seafood to your door.

    So you weren't up to going on a Halibut Charter, and you still want to host a dinner party and show your vacation pictures. Have some fresh Alaskan seafood shipped to your home. Even if it seems pricey, compare that to what you would have spent on the charter boat. So take a taste of Alaska back to your home, and delight your friends.

    Visit the web site for recipes.

    What to buy: This is a seafood shop, so buy what you like to eat. If you want a mild tasting fish, try the halibut, if you prefer the wilder taste of salmon, go for it.

    Spirit of Alaska

    This shop is filled with very interesting native crafts, in many price ranges. You might even consider it a museum where the displays are for sale. Everywhere you look there is something interesting and unusual. Take your time, and enjoy your shopping experience.

    I enjoyed browsing the displays.

    What to pay: You can spend as much as you like.

    Nomar: The place for fleece without getting fleeced

    Photo courtesy of www.nomaralaska.com

    Nomar makes some of the softest, warmest fleece I've ever felt. They carry everything from hats, mittens, and scarves to sweaters, blankets, and coats. Everything is made on site and if you ask, they'll take you on a tour of the plant in the back where you can see everything being made.

    Their prices are incredibly reasonable.

    What to buy: Cold weather clothing, blankets, fishery gear, backpacks, travel gear.

    Homer's Gold Mine Gifts: All the Souveniers you could possibly want

    Gift Shop

    This is a huge gift shop, and I can't really tell you what all they sell, 'cause I've never been inside, but it looks pretty cool

    If you are looking for souveniers, this is probably the place to get gifts for friends and relatives.

    Look for the Made in Alaska Symbol while shopping for gifts in Alaska.

    The Save-U-More in Homer is a good place to know about. It has groceries, a deli, camping supplies, hardware, and most of the other things one typically finds in a discount store. It even has three computers and free internet access upstairs. Many of the items are Costco size; however, some things come in standard sizes. The prices are reasonable for Homer.
