As part of the Shop Local Colorado campaign this May, we encourage shoppers to celebrate the mothers in their lives while also supporting local, small businesses across the state.
We invite business owners and community partners to use the #ShopLocalColorado toolkit to share the shop local messaging and urge all Coloradans to shop locally, support our small businesses and boost their local economy.
The following local shops are a perfect fit for the women in your life. Beyond the businesses listed, we encourage you to look at all of the small businesses in your area to find inspiration for the mothers in your life.
In 1995, founder of Rosy Rings, Shannon Cumberland started making candles out of her duplex kitchen. The business blossomed as she learned the craft of candle making and began to incorporate floral elements into the scents. Today, the shop sells countless scented products and ready-to-go gift sets.
“I plant little seeds of ideas all over; the process is always about cultivation. And I’ve learned that by letting go of expectations, you can enjoy surprises as the flower,” said Cumberland.
Rags Consignments is a women's consignment shop specializing in clothing, accessories, footwear and jewelry. The store was started in Boulder over 25 years ago by the current owner, Margaret Miner. There are now three locations in the front range and an online store for statewide shoppers. In 2019, Rags saved over 87 tons of clothing from landfills alone, so you can feel good about shopping locally and sustainably.
