By Alexa Jorgenson
On March 5, 2009, as many people left their homes in the morning for work, a natural gas line blew up and destroyed four downtown businesses and called for an emergency evacuation of two city blocks. Fires in the gas lines and rubble burned for over 24 hours after.
Our flagship store in Bozeman happened to be on that very block. When news reached us, we feared the worst. I remember walking up to Montana State University that day, headed to my first class of the morning, and being struck by the plume of smoke above the downtown area. Once I heard the news, I wondered and worried about our employees and our storefront on that day.
It's an exciting time of year here at Montana Gift Corral. The winter months are the time when our buyers go to markets all over the country to find new product lines to bring into our shops for the year, as well as re-up on some of our favorite classic product lines! (huckleberry products, anyone? ✋)
That being said, we have a lot of new product lines coming in every day, and we are excited to share some of our favorites with you today! You'll also find some of our timeless favorites that we also love. We hope you enjoy!
There's nothing dryer than wintertime in Montana. With our low humidity and the cold weather, skin really takes a beating. Combine, that with shoveling snow, skiing or snowboarding, and constantly washing your hands, and the people need relief! My poor cuticles can barely take it! Luckily, we carry some of the absolute best Montana made body products to soothe that dry and itchy skin.
