My Story

I've been collecting secondhand my entire life. While on maternity leave in 2019 I cleaned out my closet, held a story sale and the rest is history. I want to do good with my business so I focus on sustainable packaging (I use a zero waste label with a recyclable liner, renewable and biodegradable tape, and a combo of second use, compostable and zero waste recyclable shipping pouches. I offset all carbon emissions from your orders) and I donate 10% of my profits to the amazing local non-profit Open Arms Perinatal Services. Peace Love Bear is an old blog name that combined my care free spirit with my nick name. (fun fact, when we got married, my partner and I both legally changed our last name to Bear, so yes, I'm really Lana Bear!) I was born in Seattle, WA and returned home in 2017. I reside on Tiger Mountain with my husband, and our two kiddos. I worked for URBN Inc. for 16 years and have my Merchandise Management degree from FIDM. I also work as a birth doula as birth equity is extremely important to me. My doula site is Golden Birth Doula. I love to chat so find me at a market!
