Gift giving has always been associated with the holiday season, but that hasn’t slowed us down here at Adorned. We truly believe any time of year is the perfect time to give a loved one a special token of affection. Constantly visitors from out of town come into our shop searching for that perfect goodie. They are often in town for a wedding or special event. While we’ve always been Boulder’s go-to destination for fine jewelry, we quickly realized that we needed to expand our product offering. This August we started offering a bevy of homemade gifts from local artists. You’ll be amazing at the variety and quality of all the new items once you step into the shop. In the meantime, we’re here to give you a sneak peak of some of the beautiful new goodies we have to offer.
Laura Konkol of Uffda Embroidery weaves small kitschy embroidery loops with fun sayings. We appreciate her sense of humor and her aesthetic. One of our best sellers is her mountain range pieces that loudly proclaim our city’s name. A favorite for many reasons as it lets our customers bring home a souvenir to their loved ones, but also astounding to watch her paint the mountains with her tiny threads.
If embroidery is not your thing, perhaps a nice candle will make the perfect hostess gift. We’re slightly obsessed with Magic Fairy Candles of Longmont, Colorado. She offers items that pack a metaphysical punch in her Intentional Life collection. Each candle comes with a crystal that is yours for the keeping once the wax is gone. Another bonus? The candles are soy based so can be used as a nourishing hand or body lotion when warm. All of the flavors are delightful, but Self Love seems to be a crowd pleaser. Who doesn’t love the soothing scent of rose sandalwood?
Are you staying with a friend who has kids? Not to worry as we have recently put together a ‘grandma drawer’ stocked with goodies such as hand-made teething rings, amber jewelry and breast feeding necklaces. In addition to these treasures, we can’t seem to keep these adorable rubber ducky soaps in stock for very long. We understand why! These playful and nostalgic beauties are hand-carved by The Charming Frog.
We’ll never stop selling fine jewelry, but it’s been a lot of fun expanding our gift collection. Many customers come into to find something for themselves and usually end up leaving with a small favor for a friend. No matter the reason for your visit, you’ll always be treated like family at Adorned by Nomad. We pride ourselves on being Boulder’s best gift shop and fine jewelry store.
