All things Russian. If you do not think you will actually get to Russia, this is a good 2nd choice for shopping. At one of the sister stores (the Russian Father Christmas) I found a stalking Santa Claus but in a cone shape as opposed to the usual doll shape. A wonderful reminder of our time in Sitka!

Gorgeous selection of Russian items reflecting the Russian part of Sitka's history. Alaskan artists are also represented. Friendly and knowledgeable folks! They helped my friend and I pick out the perfect gift within our budget.

The store is very nice and the sales person was very knowledgeable. I fell in love with a beautiful piece of art by Mills Creek which cost me over $500.00. I was informed that the piece did have its Certificate of Authenticity which is very important for its future value. They charged my credit card and I provided them with... More
