Find: Idaho Made's Wonderland of Local Artisans

By Nick Danlag

Jul 21, 2022

If you want to get a gift for a loved one, or yourself, and also want to support local artists and crafters, then Idaho Made is the right place for you. The store features works over 60 Idaho creators and is even staffed by them.

“Whether you are looking for a one-of-a-kind item, a gift for someone special, or a little something for yourself,” their website said, “you are sure to find what you are looking for at Idaho Made. From pottery to jewelry, stationery to sculpture, we’ve got just the thing to capture your imagination.”

The Idaho Made website lists all their artists and their businesses. One of the artists, Sofia Cardoso, creates and sells small concrete items and plant art. Many of her items have human names, like “The Sam” stainless-steel concrete ring and “Helen,” the small plant holder.

The physical store is located at 108 N. Sixth St. and is open Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
