This 2-in-one enterprise began as a home-based catalog business in 1985. At the time, Dawna began this business when she gave up her elementary teaching career so she could be home with her young son and new daughter. Today the kids are finished with college and the business continues with Dawn as the day- to-day manager and husband Jim handling the catalog production.
Woodland Catalog features a full range of items with the Smokey Bear and Woodsy Owl emblems. It grew from 8 pages and one color in 1985 to its current 64 pages in full color. It mails nationally twice a year and can be viewed online at www.smokeybeargifts.com. The business outgrew the Fazios' house and the current location, with offstreet parking, was purchased in 1996.
In 2002, the Fazios purchased Northwest Showcase and moved it from its former location in downtown Moscow. The store features the work of about 70 of the finest local and regional artists and includes ceramics, wood, photography, jewelry, paintings, books, specialty foods and an assortment of Moscow and Idaho memorabilia.
Our local customers appreciate the opportunity to buy high quality artist´s products and Idaho souvenirs year-round. Many vacationers go out of their way to visit the home of the Woodland Catalog of Smokey Bear items. We´re open weekdays 10 am to 5 pm and our friendly staff will be happy to see you!
