Little Alaskan, Big Impact

Little Alaskan, Big Impact

"Owners Shelby and Mike Oden are a strong team running a beautiful storefront and raising two children, Briar and Boone, the namesake of the first business they began in 2018, Briar&Boone. Since their market days, they realized the need for a local children’s clothing store and got to work to locate the perfect retail space and open the doors for their community. Just two years later, Shelby runs the store, buys the clothing, and enjoys sewing dresses, bibs, blankets, and loveys through their exclusive Briar&Boone Handmade line. Not only are the Odens proud to be contributing to their community, but they are also pleased to be able to hire locally while providing excellent customer service."
