CONTINUING ALL WEEKEND: Holiday shopping at Duwamish Longhouse Native Art Market

(WSB photos)

All weekend long, the main hall at the Duwamish Tribe Longhouse is transformed into a one-stop shop for holiday gifts during the annual holiday-season Native Art Market.

We visited this afternoon and photographed some of the artists – above, elk-skin drum maker Margie Morris; below, Coast Salish artist Peter Boome:

They’re among more than 15 vendors this year, as is Sue Shotridge from Raven’s Nest on Vashon:

You can buy food while you’re there too – we noticed more than a few marketgoers enjoying frybread. Also worth the visit, you can see the exhibits in the Cultural Center outside the hall where the market is happening, and shop the Longhouse gift shop too. The market continues Saturday and Sunday (November 25-26), 10 am-7 pm, 4705 W. Marginal Way SW. And if you haven’t been to the Longhouse in a while, note that they now have parking lots immediately north, same side of the street.

    I found such great gifts there today. Beautiful (and meaningful) art, jewelry, pottery and more. It’s absolutely worth your time!

    Is there a vendor list anywhere? I stopped by today and had a great conversation with one of the vendors there, and picked up a couple gifts, but I forgot to ask for a card or contact info. I want to be able to check out a few of them in the future and see their newer work and things they didn’t bring to the market, and include the artist info when I gift things this winter. Unfortunately none of the folks I’m looking for are the ones you mention in this post. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
