GL,They're not going to be more at the factory.More than likely cheaper.You will find handmade items elsewhere,more unique,more expensive.All depends on your tastes and budget.For good ole Alaska souvenirs, Walmart,Fred Meyer's any large chain.Some items I really like are picture albums with Alaska written on the outside.Canned/smoked salmon that I've seen ready to be addressed and sent.T-shirts,hats,Alaska jams,candy,soaps,books,video tapes,calenders,coffees,chocolates.....no shortage on neat things to purchase.
Do you know if the prices at the Ulu Factory are about the same as purchasing elsewhere? Also, I've heard that Fred Meyers is a great place to get souvenirs. Is that true?
When you buy the Ulu knives...do you actually use them when you get them home? Guess I'm trying to find out if that a practical gift for someone who cooks. Thanks.I've been checking out the Ulu knives, & I am getting one for myself and I am definatly planning on using it when I get home... I cook alot and it looks like it will be GREAT.
