There are some good shops and galleries in Sitka, mostly on Lincoln and Harbor streets. Several are across the street from St. Michael's Cathedral. Fairweather Prints, 209 Lincoln St., has a fun, youthful feel; it's large and has a diverse selection, including wearable art (including T-shirts), watercolors, prints, ceramics, and cute, inexpensive crafts. Continue west on Lincoln to Old Harbor Books, 201 Lincoln St., a good browsing store with an excellent selection of Alaska books. Near the Crescent Harbor dock, the Sitka Rose Gallery occupies a Victorian house at 419 Lincoln St., featuring higher-end work, mostly local: sculpture, original paintings, engraving, and jewelry. The Sheldon Jackson Museum Gift Shop, 104 College Dr., is an excellent place to buy Alaska Native arts and crafts with assurance of their authenticity.
