Doug Allard’s Trading Post has a wide selection of beadwork done on the Flathead Reservation . Expect to find some great beaded earrings and hair ornaments, as well as less apparently traditional beaded cigarette-lighter covers. There’s also a chance for a close view of some buffalo here; Allard has a small herd paddocked near the trading post.
A couple of miles north of Allard’s, the Four Winds Trading Post (406/745-4336) specializes in moccasins, Indian artifacts, and toy trains. Preston Miller, proprietor of Four Winds, also collects historic buildings from around the Mission Valley and has moved several to the trading post.
