This morning I have a couple local business to look at and yes, they carry handmade or local artisans works as well.
This must be Boise's best kept secret, Indie Made located in lovely downtown Boise Idaho, all eight blocks of it, located at 108 6th Street (at Main) in the Pioneer Tent Building. Their site is more like a blog, but they do carry handmade items from local artists. They also have a Facebook fan page. Follow either of the links to find them.
The Purple Rose Boutique at 1415 N Milwaukee, in Boise (off Fairview). Several friends have just raved about this shop, although I have not had the opportunity to visit in person, the facebook page has nice photos of what the shop has to offer, from jewelry to clothing.
Mixed Bag Bazaar is located at 106 Latah in Boise. They also have a website dedicated to Mixed Bag Enterprises. I was asked at one time to put items in the shop for consignment, what happened after that is a mystery. However they seem to have resolved whatever issues they were having and have managed to rally and move forward. Their shop (more like consignment) runs a Saturday Sidewalk Mall (Bazaar) in front and to the side of their store, check the page for dates and details.
Thank you for stopping by and having a read. Feel free to click through or actually visit any of the shops listed here today. They would appreciate it.
