Local Goods

We took the "shop local" mantra to heart, and sought out fabulous local products being sold at local stores

1 | Bar H Brand Purse and Flasks Western flair meets feminine design in all of Bar H Brand's cuffs, purses and flasks. This luxurious mahogany purse is handcrafted in Spokane with genuine cowhide, and lined with a sumptuous caramel colored suede. The flasks are wrapped in supple, smooth cowhide, and can be custom ordered to add names or monograms. Find Bar H designs at Cues and online. $375 purse, $45 flasks


2 | Jody Steensland Bracelets Jody Steensland makes modern-day chainmaille and Viking knit jewelry. Much of her work is done using sterling silver; the bracelets featured on this page use a Greek leather cord and lapis beads. Find her jewelry at Echo Boutique, Pottery Place Plus and Gallery Northwest in Coeur d'Alene. $25-$30


3 | Create My Fête Mason Jar Lids and Straws Transform any Mason jar into a charming conversation piece with these daisy-cut jar lids and cheerful striped paper straws. Popular for birthday parties, showers and even weddings, you can find them at Decorum in downtown Spokane or on Etsy. The Hayden duo behind Create My Fête also sell darling kraft bags, kitchen twine (in decorative colors and designs) and cookie cutters. $3.99 for 24 straws; $4.50 for six daisy-cut Mason jar lids


4 | Dog and Pup Glass Suncatchers The rainbow of glass globes hanging in the windows of Pottery Place Plus is almost a traffic hazard. They're eye-catching, as the sun shines through each translucent orb. Every globe is hand-blown, but they aren't overly delicate. Hang them from a window; we've also seen a cluster of them floated in a small pond or decorative pot. $18-$30


5 | Mountain Madness Soaps Every single bar of Mountain Madness soap is handmade from scratch. They're works of art, and smell even better than they look. You can trust that the soaps and sugar scrubs are made with natural ingredients like green olive oil and coconut oil, instead of detergents or petroleum products. Buy them at Kizuri, their new storefront in Coeur d'Alene or online. $6-$10


6 | Bungalow Candleworks Cabernet Tori Chamberlain-Bailey was irritated with Pier 1's candles. Why did they lose their smell? Why didn't they burn longer? So she set out to make a better candle, and she did. Find them at Pottery Place Plus and online. $12


7 | Maid Naturally All Purpose Cleaner This all-natural cleaner, made with eucalyptus and lavender oils, smells good enough to inspire a cleaning binge. Find it at Huckleberry's, Yoke's, Eco Depot, Main Market or online, then take your bottles to Maid Naturally's headquarters on Nevada and refill them for 50 percent off. $5.89


8 | Hopkins Accent Furnishings Candleholder Paul Hopkins takes used wine barrels and retools them into custom furniture, candle holders and wine racks. Find samples of his work at Decorum or online. $19
