There are some things all homes have in common, but only certain items are uniquely involved in every Missoulian household. In Missoula, there’s a perfect mix of musicality, local pride, and the love for the outdoors. All of these aspects show through in what we choose to show off (or just plain own) in and around our houses. How many of these can you look around and find in your own home?

Griz Merch.

This may be an obvious one, but it’s certainly true! Probably a sweater, a baseball cap, and, of course, a high soaring flag.
