Simply Bella

Every town needs someone to fulfill the wish-lists of culinary artists, aspiring gourmands and dinner hosts. If it has to do with cooking or kitchenware, Ketchikan has its own Irish-descended expert in Orla Roberts. After 25 years in the business, she knows every cheese grater, grinder, frying pan, and cookbook.

Her shop on Tongass Avenue, Simply Bella, has an amazing selection, where you’ll find all those kitchen tools, in addition to kitschy home décor, baby items, children’s toys, and a smattering of accessories like scarves, handbags, and jewelry.

This is the kind of store you might have found on the Main Street of any town in the 1950s before big box stores transformed the American shopping experience. If you’re looking for a souvenir from Alaska that you can use, Orla’s got something for you.

Check out Simply Bella on Facebook for current specials, or wander on down to the shop on Tongass Avenue, near Taquan Air. You’ll enjoy browsing the fun seasonal displays and unique items that fill every nook and cranny of the place.
