Pinedale Christmas Shopping
Great gift ideas right here in Pinedale
by Dawn Ballou, Pinedale Online!
November 24, 2007

One of the fun things to do during the holiday season is go shopping for presents for friends and loved ones on your gift list. Pinedale isnít a large town, only about 1500 or so population, but the local stores still have plenty of selection and great gift ideas to choose from.

We went shopping in town today at the Great Outdoor Shop, Cowboy Shop and The Barn Door. Then went online to the Museum of the Mountain Manís Trading Post (the museum is closed for the season, but the online gift shop and business office are still open and can take orders online and over the phone).

Below are some of the items that caught our attention. Note that we want to give special attention to some of our great books by local authors that are available. These make unique gifts about our area. Some are available signed by the author.

Please contact the stores directly to purchase any of these items (tell them you saw it on this article on Pinedale Online). Can't decide on what exactly to get? All offer gift certificates.
