Momma Bear - Hi there, I’m Erin owner aka Momma Bear. I struggled to find local products with values & ingredients I could trust that were safe for my boys, our waterways, the environment and our friends in nature we share this incredible planet with. I loved shopping local when it was just one son and I would put him in a carrier on my back and navigate busy markets. Since having a second child I found it challenging to purchase local as much as i wanted so I started working markets with him in tow and when created Momma Bears Boutique we wanted to simplify local shopping and increase accessibility. Momma Bears Boutique was my plan for 2022 when my kids were in school but after loosing employment during 2020 I took advantage of the time and got to work. I knew the time was now, I knew I needed to secure our future, I knew I could potentially help other local small businesses. We opened our doors to friends and family Nov 28th, 2020 and to the Public December 6th 2020. We started with any table and chair we could find, paint and refinish, it was pretty crowded! We are so thankful for all whom continue to support us as we continue to grow.
