A great thrift store find!

In Ketchikan, Sea Mart used to be THE place to grocery shop (it could have been the ONLY place to shop at the time, but I can't remember for sure). They gave out shopper's cookies and free coffee for their customers and every once and a while the Sea Mart man would show up!

Josh and I loved seeing the Sea Mart man almost as much as we loved those shopper's cookies. Today, while I was at the thrift store I found this old Sea Mart mug and thought it'd be a perfect birthday gift for Josh.

Do you remember Sea Mart??
What did you love about this cute little grocery store?


  1. tana's just jealous that she never got a picture with the Sea Mart man!!! ;-)

  2. I do remember Sea Mart but not the Sea Mart man! About a week ago I ran across one of those old Milepost guides to Alaska from 1981 in a thrift store and I had to look up Ketchikan and of course there was an ad from Sea Mart that made me smile. There was also one from the Knit Knack shop that I remember my mom taking me to when I was really young.


Leave a happy thought ;-)
