Sweetwater Flower Studio Workshops

We absolutely love the gorgeous flower arrangements that Sweetwater has built their reputation on. Have you had a chance to stop by their flower markets? They have locations in Northgate and Old Colorado City where you can pick up beautiful flowers and browse their thoughtfully curated giftshops. But did you know they also have a studio that offers regular workshops? They have fun classes like flower arranging, wreath making, wine pairing, candle pouring, sketching and more.

Women’s Bean Project 

This Denver-based nonprofit “provides job training and employment to women facing significant barriers to work.” They offer a wide variety of natural, minimally processed food items such as soup mixes, snacks, baking kits, and instant meals. Their gift sets are a great holiday gift option and they ship nationwide. But order soon: their standard shipping deadline for Christmas arrival is December 12.

Bare Goods

Each lovely and unique item at Bare Goods is thoughtfully handcrafted by Taylor out of her garage in the foothills of Colorado. She offers cutting boards, rolling pins, vases and other kitchen items that combine beauty and function. We especially love Hand Turned Wood Trees for unique décor in the holiday season.
