If you’ve looked high and low for a pair of antique teak pillars in blue, interior/exterior river rock garden lights, or a Buddha head carved to perfection from limestone with no luck, your fortune is about to change.
Straight from the Rocky Mountains, Impact Imports is now open in Old City.
Drew and Suzanne McDaniel, husband and wife owners of Impact Imports in Boise, Idaho, were visiting relatives here in town just last month when they happened upon a dream space for a new store location in Old City. So they loaded up a truck with many of their wares in Idaho and had it all shipped to N. 2nd Street.
Impact Imports is a 10-year-old retailer specializing in rare items hand-picked by the McDaniels on their many travels. In addition to the retail side of the business, Impact Imports also works with builders, interior designers and independent clients on custom-made orders like teak dining tables or bar tops and marble or river rock bath tubs.
In effect, if you can dream it, Impact Imports can have it custom-made just for you. You can see some of their completed custom projects on their website.
Be sure to check out their selection of unusual gemstone jewelry, too.
Fun fact about Idaho, home of the potato. Its state flower is the Syringa, otherwise known as the Philadelphus lewisii. Looks like this move was meant to be.
