Winlock is a growing town with a vibrant community, but it can be a difficult place to shop for date night outfits and high-quality local goods.
That’s something 25-year-old Winlock resident Reghan Burton is hoping to change with her new business, Milk and Honey Boutique.
The storefront, located at 306 NE First Street, is a collaboration between Burton’s screen-printing business Mountain Mama and a wide variety of local vendors she’s met over the years to create a place where Winlock residents can shop for clothes, accessories and home products.
“It was hard for me with Mountain Mama to narrow my focus on just doing screen printing shirts and stickers and I kept wanting to do other things, and so having a storefront boutique where I'm able to have all the other things, but I don't have to use all of my time to be making those and I can also help support other small businesses in the area,” Burton said.
Burton started Mountain Mama last summer while she was a stay-at-home mom for her two children, who are now ages 1 and 3.
“I started going to a lot more markets and local pop-ups just to shop And then I was like, ‘I could do this,’” she said.
She began making screen-printed shirts, mugs and stickers to sell and her business quickly grew, bringing her into contact with a variety of local vendors.
“So I thought it’d be really fun to have a storefront, and then it just started growing,” she said.
Online sales for Milk and Honey started in February and the storefront is scheduled to open on Wednesday, June 8.
The storefront will be open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays.
