1 Beardbrand Beardsman's Kit

As seen on ABC's Shark Tank, Spokane-based Beardbrand is leading the charge for the growing facial hair trend with its high quality beard oil and grooming kits, aiming to help men take ownership of their style. Their oils and mustache waxes are made from the highest quality natural ingredients, and their grooming products are crafted by carefully selected vendors. Available at The Man Shop, Wollnick's General Store, Weldon Barber shops and online. $194.95


2 Vintage Spokane Prints Glassware

You may have seen artist Chris Bovey's vintage Spokane prints around town and at art fairs like Bazaar, but now they've taken a new form: glassware. Atticus is now stocking Mason jars and milk bottles featuring the funky Spokane designs. Bovey's work highlights and celebrates the many local spots that give Spokane its undeniably quirky charm, including the Garbage Goat, the Garland Theater and Manito Park. Find jars and prints at Atticus (prints also available online). $10.95-$11.95


3 Dandle's Candles

Former KHQ news anchor Dana Haynes turned a hobby into a successful small business, and now she works full time making thousands of hand-poured soy wax candles each year. Her candles come in all shapes and sizes and more than 40 scents, including Pomegranate Martini and Clothesline Fresh. The pictured candle includes a cute vintage charm to keep after the wax has melted away. Find them at Decorum, Ferrante's Marketplace, Lucky Detour and Pretty Things, and online. $25


4 Slumped Wine Bottle Dishes

Ruth Eich of Sandpoint gives new life to empty wine and liquor bottles by converting them into hand-cut drinkware, candlestick holders, cheese trays and hummingbird feeders that will give some libation-inspired charm to any home. Pick up a slumped wine bottle (pictured) for a unique way to serve cheese and crackers, candy or nuts at your next party. Available at Tangerine, Windward Gift Shop in Sandpoint, and on Etsy. $16


5 Orange Thyme Bath Apothecary Soaps

What started in 2007 as a small online jewelry site with a few handmade lip balms on the side has now expanded into a wildly successful bath and body shop. Orange Thyme's all-natural, nature-inspired beauty products are hand-poured, labeled and shipped by shop owner Rachel O'Brien. Her olive oil soap is made in small batches that cure for four weeks before they're ready to sell. The line also includes scrubs, body butter, lip balms and sprays in a variety of delightful scents, including lavender lemon and rosemary mint. Find her products at farmers markets, Tangerine, Auntie's Bookstore and Boulevard Mercantile. $6.50


6 Winterwoods Tea

This local tea company was created by Tirza Wibel, a former publicist and mother of five who is passionate about building community through tea. She sources her leaves from sustainable fair-trade farms and companies, and hand-mixes each blend here in Spokane. Rose City Chocolate (pictured) is the company's top-selling flavor, but there are more than 10 delightful blends to choose from. Find it at farmers markets, Indaba, Atticus, Main Market, Petunias and online. $11.50


7 JNB Lettering Thank You Cards

In 2014, Whitworth alumna Jacquelyn Barnes started making cards to give her family something more personal than the usual grocery store card-aisle suspects. She hand-draws the card designs and scans them into Illustrator to trace and color them, creating a look that's charming, personal and far from cheesy. The cards are sold in bundles at Indaba downtown and the Book Parlor in West Central; check out her Etsy shop for more products. $15
