Friends of the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery gift shop opens
August 28, 2012
The nonprofit Friends of the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery is reviving the popular hatchery gift shop, or FISHop, starting Labor Day weekend.
The gift shop debuted last year, and organizers plan to offer salmon- and Issaquah-themed merchandise for another salmon season. The shop is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays through Nov. 18.
Merchandise includes apparel, books, pins, games, toys and more. Based on the success last year, the shop will include expanded lines of merchandise to celebrate salmon and Issaquah, and offers educational materials and souvenirs for visitors.
FISHop is on the west end of the main hatchery building, 125 W. Sunset Way, near the bridge across Issaquah Creek.
FISH is also seeking artists of salmon- or watershed-themed works to sell. Contact Jane Kuechle at 392-1118 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
