Camaraderie is what its all about!

Thank you for your interest with Arctic 56 Collector’s Club in Anchorage, Alaska. Founded approximately 10 years ago by current & past club members, the Arctic 56 Collector’s Club strives to provide a forum for people interested in village house collecting. The Anchorage based club provides Alaskan collectors an opportunity to learn more about this exciting collecting interest, create camaraderie with those who enjoy this artistic hobby and offer an avenue to channel members talents back to the community.

Joining the Arctic 56 Collector’s Club is a great way to get inside information about village collecting. Opportunities from exclusive merchandise to preferred service at local retailers to village design ideas are some of the uniques offerings from club membership. Club meetings are held throughout the year and provide a way for collector’s to meet other people, enjoy the social aspects of village collecting and enjoy great food and fun at the gatherings. In addition, the Arctic 56 club offers an avenue to challenge members creativity by establishing a club village at Providence’s Childrens Hospital for the holiday season. This magical display delights local children who are undergoing treatment for various health conditions. It is a great feeling to know that the club’s creative talent is providing joy to others during the holiday season.
