Kevin Cutler and I attended SVN Regional Training event in Portland Oregon September 11–12 put on By Curt Arthur and his office, SVN Commercial Advisors. To start the day we had a boat tour on with Willamette jet boat excursions. Kevin and I highly recommend it! We then had a surprise visit by one of the founders of Sperry Van Ness, Mark Van Ness. We then headed off to Diner at Jakes Famous Crawfish to get to know some of our colleagues better and the next day we started heavy into the meetings. In attendance was Kevin Maggiacomo, Bo Barron and Kristina Allen with the SVN corporate office. Topics ranged from leveraging the SVN systems to capital market updates and then breakouts in the specialized markets. We enjoyed the local food and meeting other SVN colleagues.
All About Socks, a Utah-based chain that specializes in socks of all sorts, has signed a lease for a store at 2155 E. 17th St., in the Teton Village shopping center next to Mongolian Grill. An opening is anticipated for the end of August.
The first store opened in 2010, but the company dates back to 1991, when Ken Wong and Hillary Lin started Lin Manufacturing in Logan, Utah. The couple have turned the company into one of the largest sock manufacturing companies in the world, making bamboo, compression, diabetic, high performance and novelty.
With all about socks, they had a vision of cutting out the middle man, and bringing well-made socks for the best prices to the public.

Swagger, a women’s boutique that opened last year in Idaho Falls at 537 West 20th Street, will be moving and opening June 6 at 2177 E. 17th Street.
Owner Shantell Goodenogh said the new store, next to Planet Beach, will give them more space and a more visible location. Instead of only Thursday, they will be open three days, Thursday and Friday from noon to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Tucked away where they were they didn’t have much visibility, and they got in trouble with the city of Idaho Falls when they put a freestanding sign on Rollandet. Nevertheless, they have built a loyal clientele that they expect to follow them to the new store.
Swagger offers affordable-but-chic dresses, tops, jewelry and accessories by smaller companies including L.A. Idol, Antique Rivet, Request and Judy Blue. Limited availability is part of the appeal, Goodenogh said.
“When you buy something from us, you’re not going to see other women wearing it,” she said. “I might order six items, and when they’re gone they’re gone.”
Their Facebook page, an important part of their marketing, can be found at Swagger. For more information, call (208) 390-8527.
