Find: Mixed Bag Bazaar 

Unique goods for a diverse world

Michelle Reynolds and Amy Schloss took over the lease at Mixed Bag Bazaar on April 22--Earth Day. Peer inside the Ronald McDonald-hued Latah Street store with its ample bongo drums, crystals, astrological charts and incense and that starts to make sense.

"This store is magical; the connections made under this roof are just amazing," said Schloss.

But don't peg the place as a hippie joint just yet. Mixed Bag Bazaar also sells high-end consignment furniture, vintage clothes, used DVDs, rare books, handmade baskets and local art. Beatles records share space with fringed leather motorcycle jackets, mink coats, fair-trade African beads and vintage kitchen bowls.

Reynolds, former owner of the popular vegetarian eatery Kulture Klatsch, and Schloss recently moved back to Boise from the Bay Area. Their goal with Mixed Bag Bazaar was to offer "unique goods for a diverse world" at prices closer to a thrift store than a vintage boutique.

The Bazaar had its official grand opening party on Aug. 13, which featured live music, local dance groups and artisan booths. Every Saturday until the weather turns, Mixed Bag Bazaar will also host an outdoor market from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. with an array of local vendors.
