Christmas shopping

The holidays are upon us.
Time to start thinking about Christmas if you haven’t already.
Why not find something that feels custom-made, like it was built just for that special person?
Chances are that we have something built that will appeal to those hardest to buy for in a way that nothing else could.
Due to the tremendous effort and logistics of gathering components, time is up for a custom, though we can print a gift certificate for you for any within our editions.
Every piece is an event unto itself, and destined to become treasured family heirlooms, and designated favorite.
Here are a few suggestions, and a range for every budget,  these represent pieces that are currently in stock and ready to ship:

The patience of a 6-year old!

Brandon waited for over a year to have this Star Wars X-Wing fighter picture by NW Limited…History in VogueTM!
He saw it at Astoria’s Sunday Market in 2007 before his 6th birthday. He mentioned it to his parents just before the 2008 Sunday Market opened.
Before it went there, though, it was acquired and put away for his 7th birthday gift (then more than 5 months away)!
Brandon continued to ask about “that Star Wars picture”, but waited patiently.

Getaway to the beach

If you will be on the coast this weekend, look us up at the Grays Harbor Street Market in Aberdeen, Washington and, as always, at Astoria’s Sunday Market where you can find us across from the Elliot Hotel.
We’ll have Dead Reckoning of the Pacific Graveyard shipwreck charts available as lithographs, or taking orders for framed ones.
Also, Lewis & Clark maps and plenty of wow to be had.
Travel is expensive, but we’ll find you a souvenir that was worth the trip.

Countdown to Father’s Day

Dads are notoriously difficult to impress.
They have very particular, focused interests and already have everything they need for that pursuit, or have such a specialized list that you wouldn’t know where to begin, nor would you have the element of surprise.
We know where to begin!
Gift gloriously, and unforgettably:


Original, authentic signature of Evel Knievel on an 8X10 photo. Matted with first-day-issue stamps and postmarks from Sturgis, SD Aug. 7, 2007!

Shop early, avoid the rush, or even commission a custom!
See you tomorrow at Astoria’s Sunday Market.
