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."

Consignment, thrift and antique shops; they are plentiful here in the Anchorage/Mat-Su Valley area! SecondRun, Ozarks, The Clothesline Consignment, Alaska 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. ;)

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!
