Eleven -71, a women’s boutique and home goods store, is located downtown International Falls and is proudly owned by Katrina Holden and Kelly Franz. Katrina had previously lived in Louisville, Kentucky and had seen many boutiques and fell in love with the idea of having one in International Falls. She didn’t realize that Kelly, due to her business education and love of fashion, had the same desire. They each individually reached out to a contact for more information about opening a boutique and found out about each other. Katrina and Kelly messaged each other right away and realized they each had the same dream. Before opening a store together they spent many hours finding suppliers that had items which would enhance their boutique and strived for Minnesota products that highlighted their business.
They found the perfect spot on Main Street and opened their doors on May 20th, 2016. Next month they will be celebrating their one year anniversary and plan to have a Birthday party with giveaways and in store sales. Their boutique has a little bit of everything from Women’s clothing and accessories, to home goods. They also have a very popular line of MN gear with hats and shirts for both genders of all ages.
Katrina and Kelly have a great fashion sense and have the latest trends in clothing available to their customers. They continue to grow and have new items in their store each week. One of their latest accomplishments is their new online store. They are continuing to grow their retail location but will also focus on their online store.
