Holiday Gift Guide 2014

Be sure to stop by the Fountainhead Antique Auto Museum this month and check out the interesting selection of gifts in our shop. There is no admission fee just to shop, although you might want to see our newest displays in the museum and climb into the 1911 Everitt for a fun Christmas photo. We're open on Sundays from noon to 6 PM, and will also be open on December 9 from 5-9 PM.

On December 9 from 5-7 pm we'll be hosting a book-signing with Sandy Jamieson and Nancy DeWitt, illustrator and author of our new Alaska's Automobile Pioneer: Ride Along With Bobby Sheldon Coloring Book. We're very excited about its release, which features 18 whimsical illustrations and text highlighting Bobby's inventions and adventures in the Last Frontier. Even adults will want to color some pages! The book is a bargain at $5.95. If you can't make it into the museum on a Sunday, the books are available 24/7 at the Wedgewood Resort front desk.
Nancy will also be signing copies of our museum book, Alaska's Fountainhead Collection: Vintage Treads and Threads on December 9. Beautifully illustrated with over 280 photographs, this book highlights 46 of the museum's rarest cars, plus several historic fashion pieces and entertaining snapshots from Alaska's early motoring days. The book sells for $19.95.

We have a nice selection of other books, including ones featuring period fashions, cars to color, and old-fashioned paper dolls.

You'll find plenty of stocking stuffers in our gift shop, including the ever-popular finger magnet tool from Busted Knuckle Garage ($9.95), day passes to the museum ($10), key rings, bookmarks, magnets, mint boxes, coasters, lapel pins, and antique car earrings (all under $20). We also offer season passes, which are $40 for an individual and $60 for a family (up to 2 adults and 4 children).

We have several shirts to choose from, including standard t-shirts and ladies tops sparkling with Swarovski crystals. Hurry in for one of our popular "Too Bad..." shirts shown at right, or one featuring our 1920 Argonne, 1932 Chysler, or 1906 Pope-Toledo and 1907 White Steamer together. We also have shirts, ball caps, and knit hats with our Auburn logo embroidered on them.

Fashionistas will love our selection of scarves, beaded clutches, retro hats, and vintage-inspired jewelry. Our cloche hats have been especially popular with museum visitors this year.

We carry such a wide variety of necklaces, pins, bracelets, and earrings that ladies may want to come in and make a wish list for their secret shopper. Our newest additions feature Art Deco-inspired necklaces and earrings, all reasonably priced.

Finally, don't miss our die-cast cars, infant onesies, and custom-made copper ornaments. There is something for everyone here! Our books, shirts, hats and several other items can be purchased by phone--just call 907-450-2100 to inquire.
