Adie's Furniture and NoveltiesAdolph (Adie) Kanten’s first business endeavor was Adies Popcorn Stand which he located on the west side of Main Street in 1938. In 1939 owner, Adie relocated his new bright orange stand on the beachfront just a few yard from the Simpson Boat House right beside the highway. The wonderful aroma of popcorn permeated the air. Few could resist a bag of this fresh buttered or caramel popcorn as they strolled along the beach. Popcorn sold for 10¢ regular size, 25¢ large and with butter an extra 5¢. A few years later, a lumber truck crashed into the popcorn stand destroying it. By then, Adie had began Adies Furniture and Novelties. The store was full of trinkets and toys, household items, furniture, and glassware. The 1950’s brought an influx of American tourists from many of the States, mainly California, on their way to visit the newly acquired State of Alaska. Many of these people stopped by the store to shop for 'Made in Canada' souvenirs. Most popular were the little cedar boxes that were made in British Columbia, as were firecrackers and beach toys!
