Specialty Stores

Sometimes, instead of a big-box retailer with a little bit of everything, you need a shop dedicated to variety in a specific area. For those times, look no further than Spokane’s many specialty stores.

For the Gourmet or Collector

Get that unusual ingredient to create a savory or sweet feast at any of several specialty grocers, ethnic markets, and gourmet kitchen stores. Select a memorable present that speaks to the personality of a loved one among dozens of gift emporiums. Discover the elusive component your collection has been missing when you check out the specialty stores dedicated to everything from comic books and vintage toys to handmade Native American arts crafted by local tribes. You’re sure to find items that are both unexpected and sought-after when you visit these Spokane specialty shops.

Candy & Sweets

Candy lovers will delight in the assortment of vendors devoted to confections and chocolates. Among several candy shops with a presence in Spokane for decades is Halletts Chocolates. Since 1978, this local chocolatier has been creating decadent treats like soft peanut butter crunch and grey sea salt caramels. You can also indulge like a true Spokanite with huckleberry-infused chocolates and caramels; the fruit is a sweet and tangy staple of the Intermountain Northwest.

Flowers, Plants & Botanicals  

The many farms surrounding Spokane make for plenty of flower shops teeming with fragrant blossoms. Parish & Grove is one purveyor where you can buy a pre-made bouquet with perfectly placed petals or pick your favorite flowers and arrange a custom creation yourself. You’ll also find a collection of air-purifying houseplants and a terrarium bar where you can make your own mini ecosystem with the guidance of the shop’s knowledgeable botanical experts.

Shop Spokane’s unique specialty stores for quirky gifts and mementos in the artisanal flavors and styles of our region.
