      As you drive through north Idaho on your way to Canada, plan a side trip through Spirit Lake. A quaint little town with a population around 1300 people, it boast a great fishing and boating lake. Considered small by our standards, it is 4 miles long. There are bars and music, a bank, schools, groceries and gas and best of all a great new business called The North Idaho Collection.

      Recently opened within the last year, this little business is expanding fast. It is located just a block off the small highway that runs through the heart of the town. Turn at the one and only stop light onto Maine street and

      just look for the sign.

      This business has now grown enough to take over 4 locations on the same street. Owner, Cam Criswell has provided the community an outlet for local artist and antique collectors to display their wares. Everything from incredible paintings to wood cravings. Much of the creative beauty is Native American art as well as frontier and country beauty.

      One location will display handmade items and donations of kitchen ware, furniture and even clothing. There are dream catchers and smudge feathers made by local artist, Sherrie Taylor. Also available are handmade knives, baby items, wall décor, collectable wall art of every kind and souvenirs of the north country.

      You ...

      • can even meet some of the artist that display their work and find more information regarding special orders. Many have their own web sites to promote their art business and are glad for one more person to relate information and beauty too and have a great conversation with.

        Local artist and collectors can list an item with Cam for a final percentage of the sale price. She provides a great, personal relationship with each person she deals with and in a very professional and kind manner. She is the heart beat of this small town and has a large number of friends for support of any idea she has.

        The main location is

        at 6236 W. Maine St, Spirit Lake, Idaho. You can contact the store by phone at 208-262-6808 or by email at [email protected] Cam will also provide you with information and a bit of history of the local area. Once you have finished your shopping, continue to follow W. Maine st to the lake and view the beauty of trees and calm water, while boats glide along the shore line.

        It is a great place to take a quick swim with the kids, before you continue you travels. But you will always remember your positive experience at The North Idaho Collection and the warm fellowship of Cam and all those that surround her business.
