Gifts under $50 on East Colfax

If you haven't yet familiarized yourself with the locally owned shops on E. Colfax, you're truly missing out. The BlueBird District (between York & Colorado) is home to the bookselling pillar The Tattered Cover (after it moved from Cherry Creek North), Twist & Shout Records (featuring tons of vinyl, CD's and DVD's), and one-of-a-kind Denver specialties like The Shoppe and Plastic Chapel. Here are a few things I found while shopping in the BlueBird District on East Colfax: 

Gifts under $50 - Online, unique & still local

Gifts under $50 in South Broadway

Don't fret that Buy Local Week is now over; there are lots of great finds at locally owned retailers all over the city! Over the next two weeks, we'll bring you a few ideas for great, unique items you can find at local retailers for less than $50.

Flobots urge you to buy local
