A bunch of you correctly guessed last week’s “Where Is It?” which was Idaho Made in Old Boise. I still want to learn more about Old Boise, but Idaho Made is a well-known spot for locally made gifts (Valentine’s Day included!), jewelry, and home decor.

But the best part about Idaho Made is that it runs as a sort of artist’s collective, with dozens of artists and makers renting out space in store and also staffing the desk — so if you go in to talk to someone, chances are they’re selling some of their stuff as well.

So if you’re looking for gifts or places to find something handmade locally, Idaho Made is open seven days a week, and shares the building with several other local businesses worth visiting, including James Beard award semifinalist Ansots.
