Local Showcase is a small, Alaskan-owned gift shop located on the Homer Spit, Alaska. In this Alaskan shop Meriam presents Real products that even Alaskans can appreciate: crafts, jewelry, bones/artifacts, and Alaskana.
Local Showcase presents only Alaskan-made arts and crafts. Original paintings, relief prints, carvings, jewelry, pottery, and wooden bowls/utensils are presented alongside our feature lines: Maynard Linders' Dancing Man Knives & Ulus, and Meriam's Wilderness Wonders line of carved ivory, antler and bone jewelry and hairpieces.
Local Showcase is proud of its selection of whale and walrus bones, artifacts (harpoon heads, slate blades, digging tools and more), walrus teeth, mammoth teeth, antlers, glass floats and other natural found objects from Alaska.
Local Showcase is also proud to present original antique maps of Alaska, original Alaska canned salmon labels from the '40's, vintage Alaska-themed salt and pepper shakers, original Alaska-themed magazine ads and other "Alaskana."
Congratulations; you have just found Real products from Real Alaskans.
