PRODUCT OF THE MONTH

Stork scissors, used for fine embroidering and other delicate needlework, are believed to have begun as birthing scissors used by 19th-century midwives to clamp and sever the umbilical cord after a baby's birth. The forceps-shaped scissors originated in Europe and were produced in metals ranging from brass to solid silver. By the late 1800s, the novel stork design had been adapted as a popular sewing tool that still is reproduced. Vintage steel stork scissors presently sell for $20 to $40.

New Beginnings

Shokota Pow-Wow Supply is a small home-based business located in Fort Hall, Idaho.   It has been a life long dream to open a "Trading-Post" to sell supplies used in creating Native-American Arts & Crafts.   Being raised around a family of artisans, I learned to appreciate the creativity and heart that is put into every hand made item. I was born to be an entrepreneur....whether I wanted to be or not, it’s in my blood. It’s what comes natural to me. I have always had a dream of owning my own little store stocked with the necessary supplies used in the creation of beautiful beaded items and unique dresses and such. I have watched my great-grandparents, aunts, uncles, and my parents create the most intricate bead-work from moccasins and gloves to hair ties and chokers and brain tanned hides. Over the years, I have been purchasing items to sell in my store, “One of these days.” So to make a long story short, I realized that “One of these days” was taking too long to come, and it was time to make my dream a reality. And so there you have it, Shakota Pow-Wow Supply, LLC. was born.
