The inspiration of long time Alaskan Aspen Aponi the Cabin Fever Gift Shop offers handmade items by local artisans, “I opened the shop to give other people a chance to show their talents,” says Aspen who moved to the Peninsula after having lived in small villages on Alaska’s Aleutian chain, “I like it here because there is a lot to do, you get bored down there on the Aleutian chain. I get restless in the winter and it’s called cabin fever for sure and for a very good reason thus the name Cabin Fever Gift Shop so that no one will get bored,” she said.

Aponi is a self-taught artisan herself and specializes in cold ceramics and refurbishing items. In the Cabin Fever Gift Shop you’ll find a wide variety of Native art and beading, a Native Alaskan Parka with a full fur inner liner, wood carvings, Stained Glass & Rope Art, wall paintings & unique wood artistry, handmade baby clothes & assorted wear, handmade spiders, scorpions & dragon flies, Alaska egg shell carvings, DoTerra essential oils, Paparazzi jewelry, “And we also have a donation table where all the items sold will be donated to the little girl who lost both legs in an auto accident Christmas day & other local charities like breast cancer awareness, domestic violence shelters, Autism foundation & the No Kill animal shelter,” said Aponi.
