    Talkeetna Arts & Crafts: A Little Off-Center in the Out-of-the-Way

    Village Arts & Crafts, Talkeetna

    Somewhat of an eclectic assortment marks the inventory of Talkeetna's Arts & Crafts store near the celebrated Talkeetna Roadhouse. Filled with books and cards, local topo maps and other Alaskan trinkets and jewelry, this is a souvenir sharper's paradise.

    Nagley's Store: Interior Produce and Expedition Supplies

    Nagley's Store

    Nagley's prides itself on carrying most of the items you would need for an Alaskan tour, including food and drink and camping supplies. Its exterior looks like the typical Alaskan tourism mecca, but its holdings are certainly relevant and practical.

    Nagley's General Store: The Historic B&K

    by mcpangie Updated Jan 22, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Nagley's Store - January 1998

    Nagley's Store used to be called The B&K when I lived in Talkeetna. I remember begging my mom for a penny when a penny could actually buy something. Gum. Or for a few cents more I could buy a "Big Buddy" and fill my mouth up with gum. Oh, and I remember Gemini, the house cat that lived at the B&K. You should go check out their website.

    What to buy: Postcards

    What to pay: Prices are generally more expensive than in Anchorage for everything. We used to drive to Anchorage a couple times a month. But, this store always have the necessities.

    Nagley's General Store: If We Don't Have It, You Don't Need It

    Old-Fashioned Shopping

    These days the store is still much like it used to be when I lived in Talkeeta. The store has a little of anything you could possibly need. The design hasn't changed, so there are still places that pennies can hide so make sure to get down on your hands and knees and look for spare change!

    What to buy: Postcards.

    Open Air Market: Splendid Soapstone Fisherman

    Soapstone Dancer

    We went along to the local Open Air Market in Talkeetna. It had some great local arts and crafts made by local people.

    What to buy: I bought a beautiful carved figure made out of soapstone from a local artist. He was a young lad who had learnt his trade from his father. He told us that he liked to travel around Europe during the harsh Alaskan winter especially Romania as he had a fondness for Dracula.

    I think I paid around $78 for the carving which now sits on the mantle piece at home. He said that he does also sell to wholesalers and also at the Saturday/Sunday market in Anchorage but then the prices have to go up substantially.
