Goodship’s Holiday Gift Guide
‘Tis the season to remind the people and organizations you love that they are special. They’re an important part of our happiness. We don’t see it as a Christmas thing or a religious mandate, but more a time of reflection and a time to give thanks. Sure, it is easy to get online and order everything with the click of a button, but now more than ever, it matters when your dollars go to sustain the artists, culture and local businesses you hold dear. That’s why we’ve picked a few of our favorite local items for Goodship’s 2017 holiday gift guide.
We want to steer you to The Frye Art Museum’s Gift Shop, NUBE, Glasswing and Ghost Gallery for locally made art and original objects you just won’t find anywhere else. Their stores are so well curated that shopping is easy. The range of treasures run from a $9.00 pack of Tlinggit Playing Cards by Trickster Company to one of Rachel Ravitch’s iconic leather necklaces (Frye Gift Shop). NUBE has rugged and recycled bags from Metamorphic and Ghost Gallery has jewelry, sculpture and fine art from a wide range of PNW artists. 2018 is going to be a year to stay informed and signing someone up for an annual subscription to the New York Times makes every Sunday special.
It’s a stressful world we live in, and Goodship cookies, mints, chocolates and fruit jellies are some of the best gifts to encourage our loved ones to take little vacations from the noise and weight of the world. Happiness is after all, a state of mind.
