A Montana Lifestyle Gallery

When I have a house.....as I sometime may.....

I'll suit my fancy in every way.

My house will stand on the side of a hill

By a slow, broad river, deep and still.

As a knocker there, like a vibrant drum,

To let me  know that a friend has come.

By the fireplace where the fir logs blaze

And the smoke rolls up in a weaving haze.

Pewter and bronze and hammered brass,

Old carved wood and gleaming glass,

Dragons in silk on a Mandarin suit,

In a chest that is filled with Bitterroot loot!


Bitterroot Bit and Spur is a retail western and lodge home décor accessory store, dedicated to providing innovative products for your home.

Since 1990, Vicki Slate, owner of Bitterroot Bit and Spur, has been known for manufacturing products of high quality. Today her focus is to create and locate upscale items to present to you, both in her 4,000 sq. foot retail store in Hamilton, Montana and also on the web through this site. The result is a collection full of interesting, traditional and contemporary style, hard to find pieces.

Be sure to take a look at the Western Home Décor section where you will find a huge selection of ranch housewares, wildlife and western bedding, and rustic bathroom accessories. The odds and ends section has some unusual wine holders and “stuff” that might interest you.

The Rustic Lodge Furniture section showcases some fabulous leather and cowhide rocking chairs at a moderate price point. If you like furniture made from wine barrels take a look at the bistro tables and chairs, as well as the wine stave furniture section.

Our rustic western lighting is just that – made from old wagon wheels, lanterns and hand forged iron pieces. We custom make our lampshades right here in Hamilton, Montana plus we carry really nice metal and rawhide shades in many different sizes.

If you are needing a wild rag or silk scarf, you will find a full selection in our clothing and accessories section. Leather vests, as well as canvas and wool vests are part of the traditional old west style of attire, but with a modern cut these vests are very stylish in today’s lifestyle.

Take the time to browse our Western Art Gallery where you can appreciate the work of Andy Thomas, Martin Grelle, G. Harvey and Nancy Glazier – four of the leading western artists nation wide. Also, we are now featuring the stunning artwork of Cyril Reguerre, a Parisian artist whose paintings depict powerful horses in a wide spectrum of bold color.

Together with her other staff members, Carla, Julie and Audrey and Randee, she welcomes you to call the stores toll free number (1-888-899.0930) if you have any questions or concerns. We encourage you to feel comfortable while shopping on our site, knowing we are just a phone call away.
