Campfire Couture opens in downtown Sandpoint
Kimberly Stoddard has opened Campfire Couture in Sandpoint.
The shop at 319 First Ave. sells heirloom quality clothing and accessories from independent designers and local artists.
Stoddard said she designed Campfire Couture with “a cozy, casual atmosphere” in mind. A leather studio in the back of the shop lets visitors see how the pieces are created.
Stoddard made a leather handbag for a friend from an old jacket about 10 years ago and got hooked on leather working. She started an Etsy site and later opened a leather studio in a downtown Sandpoint location.
Campfire Couture expands her retail offerings. Besides leather handbags and accessories, the store features local artists’ jewelry, shaving razors and grooming products for men, Pendleton wool jackets, items made from vintage textiles and women’s and men’s apparel.
