Vintrey Honest Goods on Public Road

This small, family-owned business anchors the heart of Public Road in Lafayette and is one of the County’s true gems.  Brother and sister team Jordan and Ricci grew up traveling the world with their family, who were engaged in work to sustainably help those with less.  In 2011, with the support of their community in India, the duo began sourcing handmade products to bring home to Colorado and the Vintrey brand was born.  In a beautiful old home in downtown Lafayette’s business district, they surrounded their proprietary handcrafted leather, jewelry and textiles with tastefully curated unique vintage home furnishings, the work of local artists, slow fashion and other small batch goods.   They are not only local leaders in retail experience, they established a community here and abroad that celebrates sustainability, quality and honest goods.  

Tip:  Grab your morning espresso or chai at East Simpson Coffee on your way to Vintrey.

Mika selects every piece with intention.

Dedicated to the philosophy that your home should be filled intentionally with only those items you love, Mika brings her soulful designs to life in a retail experience, hidden just out of sight off Valmont and 29th.   The tucked away location makes it an even more fantastic shopping destination for vintage lovers; like following a treasure map.   The eponymous shop reflects Mika’s sensibilities as an interior designer; she looks for one-of-a-kind pieces that have depth and story, helping her clients move away from fast furnishings.  Her showroom is inspired by Mika’s life exploring landscapes and old cities.  Unless you are stopping by on Thursday or Friday between 11:00 am and 3:00 pm, shopping at Mika Woyda Home is by appointment only, which is a delight in and of itself.

Tip:  DM @mikawoyda on Instagram, or email [email protected] to shop her treasure trove of sustainable home furnishings and accessories. 

IMA Design Gallery is more than a hub for art enthusiasts: it is a haven for conscious connoisseurs, collectors, and consumers who value sustainability, character, quality, and style. Curator Katie Selvage infuses infectious enthusiasm and a discerning eye into every corner of her uniquely eclectic gallery.  Embracing the circular design and consign service model, you’ll find everything from mid-century and navajo tapestries to iconic music insider’s photographs and local jewelry.  An always changing (and always good) array of fine art, decor, and one-of-a-kind treasures makes IMA am epicenter of cool and a must-visit destination in North Boulder.

Tip:  Make IMA your jumping off point for exploring the NoBo Arts District, especially on First Fridays.

Few of a Kind Vintage

Heirloom quality household items from Few of a Kind Vintage in Niwot, Colorado
Expertly curated by Angie Miltersen

Few of a Kind is nestled in the heart of historic Niwot, Colorado, housed within the walls of a century-old blacksmith shop.  Steeped in charm, Few of a Kind offers a delightful fusion of old and new with an exquisite collection ranging from high-quality vintage items to stylish small-batch lifestyle brands encompassing textiles, cocktail provisions, botanical beauty, and hand-poured candles.  The renovation of the blacksmith shop installed two large skylights in Few of a Kind, creating a cozy but sunlit shop with the ethereal quality of a treasure hunt.  Owner and curator Angie Miltersen is a creative shopkeeper with a history in event design and a love for all things vintage; she effortlessly juxtaposes the beauty of the past with the freshness of the present, leaving a lasting impression on anyone who appreciates the art of blending old and new.  There are few vintage experiences  (pun intended) like this anywhere, let alone in Boulder.

Tip:  Pair a trip to Few of Kind with any of the wonderful community events taking place in Niwot year-round.

Island Farm

Island Farm is a lifestyle boutique on Pearl Street in Boulder, Colorado

The Vintage Trail’s only stop on Pearl Street, the Island Farm boutique inspires imaginations with collected treasures and vintage-inspired brands.  The proprietors of Island Farm are constantly on the go, traveling the world in search of expressive goods:  creative décor pieces and new artists to introduce in the shop’s collections, such as vintage-inspired and highly sought after labels like Magnolia Pearl.  Vintage elements (looking for an impossibly large piece of old sea glass??) are tucked in around new offerings in women’s and men’s clothing, curated coffee table books, jewelry, and original artwork.  Island Farm is an ideal stop for anyone with a chronic case of wanderlust, an eye for originality, and desire to live inspired.  

Tip:  Island Farm is on the same block as the Boulder Bookstore – plan a long morning exploring both shops.
