Web Exclusive: Denver’s All-time Best Boutiques

The definitive list of Denver’s classic neighborhood shops. Plus, the must-have from each store.

20 Best New Boutiques

They’re clever, stylish, and more niche than ever. The new shops of Denver’s indie retail scene say something about our evolving town (and taste). Vegan footwear? Handmade papers? Japano-funk? Premium olive oils? We’ve found your purveyors. Not to mention an influx of fashion hotspots brimming with urban-inspired threads, flirty dresses, and handmade jewelry. If the vibe seems decidedly feminine, chalk it up to our burgeoning tribe of women entrepreneurs. Another trend: the movement toward ecologically and socially responsible merchandise. Here, in no particular order, our 20 favorite discoveries.

And holler. And distract. And infuriate. And, usually, win. It’s all part of the grand plan for Colorado Republican chairman Dick Wadhams. But after a devastating political loss in 2006, can the man who was once dubbed the next Karl Rove get his groove back?

A Cabin in the Pines

We love the idea of getting away to a remote cottage in Colorado’s high country. Yet, more often than not, that “sweet little rustic retreat” you rented online turns out to be a dusty, cold, bare-bones log dwelling with a tattered plaid sofa and animal heads on the walls. Truth is: It’s just not that easy to find weekend escape-worthy cabins on your own. Which is why we’ve done it for you. Throughout Colorado, we found resorts that offer cozy, romantic, well-appointed cabins. If fluffy down comforters, rough-hewn furniture, and quiet nights by the fire are what you seek, we have a cabin for you.
