Happy Sandpoint Friday :)
Today we are visiting the actual town - a town so quaint it could have almost been named Mayberry.
Even the local Radio Shack looks cool. How often does that happen?
I really liked the town of Sandpoint, and now of course I wish I had taken a lot more pictures
of some of our favorite places. I loved walking around the streets and visiting the different stores.
The Main Stage Cafe (at the lovingly restored movie theater) had the thickest slices of pumpkin bread ever -
you could grab a window seat and watch the town go by as you ate it. Oh yum... it was so amazingly good!
Pack River Potions, next door, had all kinds of wonderful handmade lotions. They would even customize it!
Snow River had All Things Ugg and had handmade items also. The owners were the nicest people ever.
In fact, just about everyone in Sandpoint was nice. One of the reasons it was so enjoyable to visit each store.
This fun locally painted mural was outside the Potato Bar - an awesome restaurant - and the local Starbucks
We came reeeeeelly close to purchasing Romeo's Pizza, which was such a cool place.
It stood across from a small city park where they had the most awesome Farmer's Market every Saturday.
What can I say... I thought it was an omen. I thought it was written in the stars. I still think it probably was.
We actually DID buy Walker's Donuts. I think we owned it for maybe an hour before we chickened out.
The inspection terms were shaky and it's true - instead of being adventurous and jumping in, we weenied out :(
Such a great place - John helped me get all my antiques fixed up so nicely in here and the staff were awesome.
Plus there was an adorable little cafe attached to it on one side, and an amazing home decor store on the other!
Looking from the back side toward the town, this is the famous Coldwater Creek Bridge,
where the first Coldwater Creek clothing store originated (and still is). Few people know their main headquarters
The main city park and beach, located on the water's edge (yes, that's Lake Pend O'Reille out there).
I hope you enjoyed your tour of the town! Stay tuned for more Sandpoint next Friday!
Have an awesome weekend! xoxo
