You might not realize it, but every time you take a yoga class at your neighborhood spot or buy a gift from the local artist down the street, you’re shopping small and making a difference.
In fact, for every dollar spent at a small business in the U.S., approximately 67 cents stays in the local community. So when you Shop Small on Small Business Saturday—and all year long—it can help add up to a big impact.
Talulah Jones is one of my favorite small shops in Denver. You can find some of the most unique things for your home as well as toys, books, and clothes for kids! – Kathleen Barlow
Midnight Rambler Boutique has the cutest mix of merchandise from kids to pets to clothing and accessories. The store itself is a gorgeous space and its owned and run by a group of local ladies – Kate Kazell
I like Sacred Thistle for fancy tchotchkes – they are a florist specializing in unique and fresh wabi-sabi arrangements in downtown Denver. Boutique includes curated goods for the home, as well as unusual plants and curiosities. – Heather Dunn
I love the Tattered Cover Book Store! Established in 1971, Tattered Cover Book Store is one of America’s premier independent bookstores, a Denver institution, a community gathering place, and an experience you can’t download.
