Some of my favorite things… (sing to the sound of music song… ok you have it in your head? good, now it’s stuck!)
I have met some fabulous shop keepers and entrepreneurs located here in Denver, attempting to make a living hocking their wares! And I also found a cool list on 5280 of some others that I will have to try out!
If you want to keep the money local and help out some really cool products check these out!
Recycle Fashionably – home grown yoga bags. These ladies came up with this idea from years of hippy living for one and living with stinky bickram yoga clothes for the other! The have multiple sized yoga bags – fully lined – wait did you get that part? Fully lined to keep that sweat and whatever from getting all over everything else! And you can machine wash them! Woot! They also have some fabulous grocery bags – again fully lined! Check these products out – they do their job wonderfully and help save the environment!
Silverplume Sundries – I found this little lovely while chatting with a co-worker about hand crafted items. Low and behold, she and friend have this awesome lotion business.
All natural, great smells and the stuff works!!! I love the body butter in rose – OMG amazing! I used it after i shave and i’m smooth and moisturised all day long! The under arm stuff works! No stink! Promise! I can attest! The rest of the offering are all fabulous and they make an amazing gift. One other cool thing about their foot balm – it can be used on radiation burns. And it works. If you know someone going thru chemo and they aren’t able to get anything to heal their burns – try this magical wonder!
Callies Barkery – This woman is another transplant from the East Coast (kinda like me, but i got here via Cali…). I love her and her treats! She hand bakes all these treats with love for the animals in your life that you love! My dogs love all the choices! We stick with the breakfast scones mostly. They keep the stinkies at bay! Tons of flavors and choices! And baskets for gifting! Give your animal some love this christmas!
Women’s Bean Project – this product and project i am not as intimate with as the rest of my favorite shops, but I love the premise behind this. These women need your help. They make these items to sell to help them break the cycle of poverty. How amazingly awesome is that? I left the merchandise mart sale put on by the Junior League with an armful of their products this year!
