West Seattle holidays: 3-day gift fair at Duwamish Longhouse

Shop local, shop handmade! The three-day holiday gift fair with Native American arts/crafts vendors at the Duwamish Longhouse is under way – with even more to choose from than last year (when weather was a bit problematic)! Above, Margie Morris (Tlingit) and Ron Alphonse (Cowichan) are back – we remember the stockings and angels, in particular, from last year. You’ll also find several jewelry artists, including White Bear:

Terrance Guardipee (Blackfeet)’s booth features his paintings:

And Feather Keepers by artist Dean Rowe offers beautiful wooden boxes:

If you haven’t been there, the Duwamish Longhouse is on the eastern edge of West Seattle, 4705 West Marginal Way SW (map). The gift fair runs till 5 today and again 10 am-5 pm tomorrow and Sunday.

    We went today (Friday). We bought some beautiful handmade wool hats and an awesome felted wool purse. We also got delicious smoked salmon which I’m sure won’t last very long at our house. The gift fair is very worthwhile checking out, and so is the very cool Longhouse!!

    We went Friday, too. Wonderful handmade crafts, jewelry, and art. Bought three unique items to give at gifts. Very fair prices. Worth stopping in and seeing the longhouse.

    Enjoyed the fry bread and coffee this morning. Bought two nicely crafted shoulder bags for my sissies.
