Allise Feldman, Owner, and Curator, elin. - Allise is the proud owner of the unique shop lovingly named elin. After spending over a decade in retail + sales Allise decided to make her dreams of being a small business owner a reality. So with the support of her family + friends, and especially her husband Aaron, elin. was brought to life. As an Ankeny native, Allise felt it was only natural to have this town be the home of her brick and mortar shop. With an emphasis on the customer experience, Allise's hope is for you to walk out of elin. feeling empowered, beautiful, confident + above all, fierce.
