If you are looking for a bling fling, but not an on line pop-up plus shipping and handling experience, and you don't want to travel to Anchorage or Seattle, cozy up to Laone's Kenai River Purse Company and Boutique in the Central Peninsula Mall across from the Triumvirate Theatre in Soldotna and get your fashion freak on!
Laone's Kenai River Purse Company features a wide variety of popular brand names in purses, accessories and many hand made one-of-a-kind items. "I started out selling items in tents at the local Saturday and Wednesday markets; I traveled to bazaars around the state and finally decided that it could work in a shop so we opened the Kenai River Company here in the River City of Soldotna. Many of my customers got to know me at the markets as just Laone, so I named the store Laone's Kenai River Purse Company so they would remember it was me and come to my store the same way they came to see me at my tent," said owner Laone Benton. "We really have so much more merchandise than I have ever had before. Everything from the fashionable bling to high quality leather purses, shoes, hats, scarves, and many hand made gifts, jewelry, unique boots, and accessories, plus a delicate line of perfumes. We're just getting started, I plan on doubling my inventory over the next few months and have a huge shipment of new purses coming in any day," says Laone.
Laone feels that her shop is representative of what the advantages of local shopping is really all about, "This isn't a huge box store or shopping cart experience. You get to take your time and feel special shopping here. You can talk with me personally or ask your friends how this purse or that dress looks on you without making the long, hazardous, and expensive trip to Anchorage. And for the guys, who want to find a quick and unique gift for mom, significant other, wife or friend, we have a variety of things you just won't find at other stores around here and we're happy to help the gentlemen make a perfect selection. We also have wallets and hats for the guys, so come on in," she says. According to Laone you kind find items that literally come from all over the world at her shop. Laone's Kenai River Purse Company is also featured in the 2010 Passport to Adventure on The Kenai, Alaska's Playground, and "This is a fun place, so come in and shop around when you are visiting the Kenai." Laone's Kenai River Purse Co. is open Monday through Saturday 10:00am - 6:00pm in the Peninsula Center Mall on the Sterling Highway. Call Laone for more information or special orders at 398-4522.
