Who We Are
We live, work, and play in Alaska. It is our only territory and we know it best!
Karen Sobolesky & Co
We specialize in books, authentic native designed souvenirs and gifts, books, hand crafted jewelry, art prints and cards, arty tee shirts, plush, toys and unique "just for fun" products for the specialty and souvenir markets in Alaska. We represent companies whose products are made in Alaska, the Lower 48, Canada and Lithuania. We represent single artists and large companies. Each offers a unique place on our comprehensive line list. We hope that when you read our line list or visit our showroom, you too will see our love of fun, art and books that binds it all together.
Karen Sobolesky began her Alaska independent sales and marketing company in 2000. Since that time, we have grown from one to four reps and moved from a 200 square foot showroom to a 1,700 square foot showroom which is open Monday through Friday, 9 to 5 pm and by appointment. During the Covid 19 Pandemic the showroom is open by appointment only.
We travel the state to visit our accounts, conduct product knowledge staff training and provide in-store service as needed.
We participate each January in the Alaska Wholesale Show and hold an annual fall Market Month at the showroom. We enjoy a close working relationship with the buyers and retail directors with whom we work and appreciate every order that is entrusted to us. We strive to give our customers the very best in customer service.
Our philosophy is “win, win, win” and we look forward to working the “win” with you.
