Seaview Global, maker of mounts for marine electronics, opens Liberty Lake office

By Amy Edelen and Becky Kramer The Spokesman-Review

Seaview Global has opened an office and warehouse in Liberty Lake, employing five people.

The company designs and makes mounts for marine electronics on vessels, including radars, satellites, GPS, and navigation lights and searchlights. The office is at 2225 N. Molter Road, Suite 105.

Seaview Global’s three owners bought the brand from a company they previously worked at in Lynnwood, Washington, said Jason Romesburg, president and product manager.

Romesburg said the lower cost of doing business was a factor in the relocation. The company also has business associates in the Spokane area, and Romesburg and his wife grew up in the Inland Northwest.

Greater Spokane Incorporated helped Seaview with the relocation.

The business organization has been recruiting companies from the Interstate 5 corridor, touting the Spokane-area’s affordability and quality of life.

Doing business in the Spokane-area costs about 35 percent less than in larger markets, Todd Mielke, GSI’s chief executive officer, said in a news release. – B.K.

Campfire Couture opens in downtown Sandpoint

Kimberly Stoddard has opened Campfire Couture in Sandpoint.

The shop at 319 First Ave. sells heirloom quality clothing and accessories from independent designers and local artists.

Stoddard said she designed Campfire Couture with “a cozy, casual atmosphere” in mind. A leather studio in the back of the shop lets visitors see how the pieces are created.

Stoddard made a leather handbag for a friend from an old jacket about 10 years ago and got hooked on leather working. She started an Etsy site and later opened a leather studio in a downtown Sandpoint location.

Campfire Couture expands her retail offerings. Besides leather handbags and accessories, the store features local artists’ jewelry, shaving razors and grooming products for men, Pendleton wool jackets, items made from vintage textiles and women’s and men’s apparel. – B.K.
