Mermaid Imports: Anchorage’s international travel accessories stop

In Alaska Travelgram, Shopping by scott

Right here in Anchorage, we’ve got a travel accessories shop for the international voyager! Proprietress Tina Baugher has all sorts of goodies to help you look good, feel good and smell good while you’re on the road! 

Above, Tina hangs out at “Bangle Island” near the front of her store. What’s at the top of her list for travelers? “Sarongs, bikinis and all sorts of beach throws and cover-ups when you’re headed to the sun,” she said. 

“Plus, lots of our prettiest and most popular patterns are on sale for 50 percent off,” she said. 

Speaking of sun, it’s important to take care of your skin when you’re traveling. Tina made me try some “Skin Love”, manufactured by her friend, the Swamp Sister, in Homer. I am not making this up! Choose from several fragrances, including Lavender and Vanilla. 


Mermaid Imports is located across from Costco on Dimond Blvd. here in Anchorage, at 209 W. Dimond Blvd. You can’t miss it. It’s the little store with all the colorful flags out in front of the shop! 

Tina travels the world in search of all the cool, eclectic things that Alaskans can use in their home. Drapes, furniture, candles, accessories and just a whole bunch of great knick-knacks from the Far East, from India and the Pacific Islands. Stop in today. Tell Tina that Scott sent you! While you’re there, ask Tina about her Seaside Cottages in Homer. Suh-weet.
