Hello hello! I got a fun story request/idea for Boise boutiques, so I found a handful for ya. Keep this list handy for visitors & birthdays. A lot of these are my go-to's for when one of my moms are in town or I need a gift/card on the fly.

Also I started it off with local vintage shops because we have quite a few really cool ones that are new-ish. Happy local shopping!
