Shop Local || Alaska Edition

Small Business Saturday was a couple of weeks ago at this point, but am I the only one who felt a sense of pride in their local shopping scene? It really got me thinking about how far I've come in my Alaskan shopping journey. Wasn't it just yesterday that I was an online only gal??!

I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite local spots of late, you know, just in case you find yourself visiting Alaska OR you're like me and think it's fine to get a more clear image of someone else's "local."

Alaska Star Hat via CacheAlaska

This hat on Mallory. (Pssst! It's on sale now here!!) I'll be honest, I initially ordered this for me, but thanks to my unusually large nugget, things just didn't work. This hat is made out of a high quality wool and lined with fleece which means it keeps Mally's head roasty toasty while she plays outside in the frigid temps. For real, it's almost as though the people who made this hat were from Alaska or something... ;)  The pattern is such a classic which of course is an added bonus because it's stinkin' cute! Mal lucked out with this one I tell ya.

Consignment, thrift and antique shops; they are plentiful here in the Anchorage/Mat-Su Valley area! SecondRunOzarksThe Clothesline ConsignmentAlaska Picker, and Growing Spurts are just a few of my favorites. I've been scoring BIG at these shops lately and have to admit, "thrifting" is kind of an addiction. Pretty sure it's all about the thrill of the chase. ;)

red star - Red Barn in Palmer

vintage Coach handbag - SecondRun

J Brand jeans - SecondRun

I had to resist the urge to include my favorite local restaurants because, well, that would make for one hell of a long post. ;) Another time, promise!

If you are a fellow Alaska dweller, what are your favorite local shops? SPILL!

I love supporting local shops! Big thanks to CacheAlaska for partnering with me!
