The I-Hos Gallery is a gem. For people interested in west coast native design, art, and handcrafts, this is the place. The Gallery sell the work of many artists and artisans from the First Nations of the West Coast. The quality of merchandise is excellent (they must have a well qualified selection team) and the prices are extremely reasonable. There are also goods that are more manufactured with west coast native designs on them, which of course, offers a broader selection for people looking for something traditional without the cost of original. If you are visiting the Comox Valley, or a local looking for gifts, this is the place.

This is a truly wonderful gallery of beautiful pieces. There is a mix of hand crafted art, and select suppliers. They carry a huge selection of Native Northwest items. Their pricing is more than reasonable and they treat their artists fairly. This is a treasure. A must see stop to bring home a little piece of Ko'moks.

A group of us dropped in on the spur of the moment, after discovering there was an annual sale in progress. Had my budget allowed, there were a few items I would have been happy to purchase, at great sale prices......but I will wait for the next round, and remember 😏

Excellent First Nations staff. Excellent silver jewelery, carvings and artwork. If you plan on visiting the Comox Valley, don't miss I-Hos. We always take overseas visitors to I-Hos.

Love the staff - helpful, courteous and not pushy. Gorgeous one of a kind silver and gold jewellery, cedar boxes, scarves, art work. You name it they got it. It's the first place I go when I'm buying something for someone I care about.
