The Storm CellarThe Storm Cellar's first location, 2010.

Consignment Clothing Store, 2009-present
My bread-and-butter, my first successful business and the first one for which I made a business plan before starting. Coincidence? Probably not.

Independent Consignment & Local Goods

It was known internally as Idaho’s Second Most Interesting Store while we were planning it. Now known internally as Hidden Treasures [pronounced: TRAY-zures], after the headline of our first newspaper article.

The Storm Cellar is a consignment clothing store. Bring in your unwanted clothes and when they sell we give you 50% of the sale price in cash.

We opened in November of 2009 at 212 S Main, and moved to a bigger location at 504 S Main in October of 2010.

When we originally started we took craft items and household goods, but the clothes are the only thing that really stuck. I hope to return to locally made items when I figure out how to do it well. We've since added a variety of new housewares, and when Hallmark in the Palouse Mall closed in 2015 we added stationery.

We intend the aesthetic of the store to be clean and inviting, in contrast to the “antique store” clutter of most consignment or thrift stores. The store is for customers looking for:

  • economical buys
  • eco-conscious recycled items and local shopping
  • unique items
