Shopper’s Diary: Cabin Fever in Sandpoint, Idaho

March 21, 2011

Sandpoint is a small town of about 6,000 people nestled near the Selkirk mountains in northern Idaho; visitors en route to nearby Lake Pend Oreille and Schweitzer Mountain ski resort provide a steady stream of traffic, which means great restaurants, breweries, and a music festival that draws more than 20,000 people annually. Every year I try to visit my favorite shop in Sandpoint—Cabin Fever—which never disappoints; the owners stock a selection of high-quality Western-inspired goods for the home, always with a few surprises in the mix (no online commerce; contact Cabin Fever directly at 208-263-7179 for product and ordering information).
