Welcome to our store which was established by Preston E. Miller in 1965. We offer unique one-of-a-kind items and exclusive products such as our own Fox Brand Braid. Today, Four Winds is the largest operating trading post as well as the oldest in Montana. Shop where the local Indians buy their supplies!! A visit to our old-time store is a trip back in history. Beads, face paint, deer & moose hides, dance bells, real sinew, & porcupine hair roaches (headdresses) are among the authentic goods found at Four Winds, the oldest continuously operated trading post in Montana! The original log store was built in 1870 by Duncan McDonald & moved from nearby Ravalli to it\\\'s present location by Preston Miller almost 40 years ago. Find old & new books here about local Indian history as well as about Duncan & his father, Angus, famous local Hudson\\\'s Bay trader who built nearby Fort Connah.

Swap Meet, Flea Market, Farmers Market! Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday beginning June 5th and running all summer.
Vendors Welcome! Swap Meets will be held beginning June 5, 2015 and run every Friday, Saturday and Sunday through September 2015. I will be advertising across the state and include parts of Northern Idaho. The site is at Garrison, Mt. it is the junction between Butte, Missoula and Helena, has a large amount of drive by traffic and can be seen from Interstate 90. Easy access on and off the highway and plenty of parking. There is a campground within a mile of the site, reservations are encouraged since it is often full in the summer. We have a small amount of space that vendors are welcome to park in if they have a self contained camper, on a first come first serve basis. It is not paved and the mud would depend on the weather.
Cost will be $20.00 per day for a 10\' x 10\' space or $48 for the whole weekend. Reserved spaces will be allowed at a rate of $ 16.00 per day but must be paid at least 2 weekends in advance of the swap meet.
Vendors are welcome to set up on any of our off days or the months of May and October for $10.00 per day the spaces will be first come first serve and we ask that you take care of your own waste disposal.
