Holiday Shopping That Supports Maritime Heritage


Looking for a unique holiday gift? Want to support maritime history and preservation? Many groups have gift shops with items you'll never find in malls or downtown, and there are online shopping options as well. Maritime Heritage Network just opened the MHN Gift Shop, which brings together heritage gifts and the reliability and security of Amazon.com. You'll find more than 350 items, including books, music, DVDs, and much more!

If you prefer to shop in person, try the Northwest Seaport gift shop at South Lake Union Park. Holiday hours are: Saturday December 2, Friday December 8, and Saturday December 9, noon to 4 p.m. Other Saturdays and Sundays if volunteers are available. Call 206-448-0707. Plenty of parking is available.

Sales at all gift shops support continued operations of maritime heritage groups.
