The West's Most Whimsical Store
Even before it was officially a town, Bigfork had a power plant (1889) which gave its name to the town's main street, Electric Avenue. By the time the township of Bigfork was officially platted in 1902, electric power lines stretched the length of the main street--”Electric Avenue”. in 1932, 90% of rural America was still without electricity, lighting their homes with gas flames and coal oil lamps but Bigfork was electrified!.
Laura, Loyd, Moon, Kaya, Mollie
Electric Avenue Gifts is located on Electric Avenue in the charming town of Bigfork, Montana. In perfect harmony, Bigfork is nestled in mountains yet hugs the shoreline of Flathead Lake (the largest lake west of the Mississippi).
With such a picturesque setting, it is no wonder Loyd and Laura Meissenburg found their way to Northwest Montana in 1985. Laura began working at the tiny gift shop that was attached to a bar (shopping and drinking, why not?). Soon thereafter Laura became partner and then took over ownership.
In 2008, the shop moved physical locations to accommodate more space, but not to worry, it was just across the street, still on Electric Avenue.
Today, Electric Avenue Gifts is the west's most whimsical gift store. And now with an online store, you can shop anytime from anywhere!
