The Bear's Lair was proudly opened in 1996 in historic downtown Juneau, Alaska, by owner, Kathy VanderJack. Kathy wanted to offer a unique gift shop to Juneau's locals and visitors alike, offering items made in Alaska and beyond. Locals love picking up gifts for weddings and other events, and interesting home accessories ranging from rustic to modern. Visitors adore a wide range of easy-to-pack small objects like ornaments and gourmet foods, and shipping-friendly items to meet them when they get home. We are always delighted to repeatedly hear, "What a beautiful store! You have things no one else has!"We are one of a handful of locally-owned and operated gift shops in the downtown historic district. If you are looking for a truly Alaskan store, you have found the right place! Please visit us in person to see our full inventory of wonderful items! You can also like us on Facebook and stay in the Bear's Lair loop!
