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 😏

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.

Ethnic art can be rather vulgar particularly when purveyed in a backward and provincial region. However, imagine my startled delight when my life partner Pierre dragged me against my will into this establishment.
It is all really quite splendid in its own way. Yes it may be quaint and uncouth to a small degree but then this all adds to its rustic charms.
Who knows I may even buy something if I call again !
