A hearty welcome back to tart! This hip handmade boutique is located just a few hours east of Missoula and proudly features a fabulous selection of Montana makers. Seriously so much talent in our state. And! It’s available to everyone!

In my last post I said It’s true that buying from your neighbor is investing in your economy. But, more to the point, it is investing in your neighbor and their family. Your purchase financially supports them and it affirms their passion.

Here, are a few people whose impassioned work you can buy for someone you adore (or yourself!) and feel great about supporting small business and artists. Win! For everyone.

    I don’t live in Montana, but I long for my son to grow up there. My hubs just applied for a job in Lewistown so cross your fingers!

  3. Jayne Barnes says:

    Wishing I lived in MT again too, but I could always wear it around my neck to remind me of how awesome it is. :-)

  4. Teresa says:

    I went to in Bozeman and I miss it everyday. The goal is to get back home in the next 5ish years. There is no place else a child should be raised. Adventure abounds!

  5. Maggie says:

    Summers at my family’s cabin on Flathead lake, visiting more family in Libby, hiking through Glacier with a newborn, seeing Willie live in Missoula. Yes. I love Montana.

    I’m fairly new to reading your blog. Your writing is beautiful and so inspirational and your photos are so sweet. We are a Canadian military family moving all across Canada. Hoping for roots someday. I love all your canning tutorials and such for some newbies like me! Have a wonderful weekend!

    I love that necklace! Pick me, pick me!

    Just for the record : born and bred Montana girl! Grew up in Columbus, lived in Missoula for 8ish years for college and husband’s law school, and now live in Helena! :-)

  11. Melinda says:

    I visited Montana for the first time this summer. Had such an amazing time exploring Glacier National Park and soaking in the gorgeous long summer days. I definitely left a little part of my heart there. Looking forward to a return visit.

  12. LeahC says:

    I’m a Kalispell girl myself but love to travel to the “big city” of Missoula to shop. I ordered a tart necklace and I love it!

  13. Morgan says:

    Shhhh! That necklace would make a lovely present for my Missoula amie.

  14. april says:

    I want one of these necklaces! I go to Missoula for work and was looking at them last week and wanting to buy one!

  15. Kris says:

    I come to your blog because I moved from Montana 2 years ago and love that your pictures make me homesick and happy at the same time. My daughter was born in Missoula. Go Griz!

    Chances are I’ll be buying this necklace when I don’t get chosen, but I have to comment so the winner feels even better when they win :)

  16. Christal says:

    It would be hard to decide which of the Montana daughters (who live in WA & AK now) to give it to… so I’d have to buy another.

  17. Joanne says:

    Montana, oh how I long to vist there. It is my favorite place in the US hands down. I would love the necklace. Thanks for the opportunity.

  25. Laura says:

    I’m a displaced Montanan and so miss my home state. Looking forward to spending Christmas at my true home (Missoula), in my official capacity as the Rock Star Auntie.
