About

Why Shop Sage & Oats?

Sage & Oats Trading Post is located in beautiful downtown Helena, Montana. Our brick and mortar shop celebrates Montana's cultural diversity. Major, an enrolled Northern Cheyenne, works with tribal members throughout our state to collect affordable pieces that showcase the multi-faceted talents of the Plains tribes. Michelle, of Scottish/Irish descent, works with local craftsman as well as international craftspeople to provide an Intercultural Shopping Experience in our store.

Our Etsy page features authentic Native Made in Montana artisan wares by tribal members that Major connects with personally. These artists do not have retail shops in which to showcase their wares. We hope our store bridges the cultural divide and gives shoppers the opportunity to support artisans who chose to live on our remote Montana Indian reservations. We also work with craftspeople to develop lines of products specific to our shop, values and mission.
