In the capitalist gloryland that is the good ol’ U.S. of A., there aren’t many experiences as satisfying as a little bit of retail therapy.
But even if we might love the convenience of Amazon (especially with that sweet, sweet Prime membership), they don’t always have what we want.
These Colorado e-commerce companies are working to fill that void by selling creative, fun and just-what-I-was-looking-for items, from clothing to home decor:
Based in Greenwood Village, eBags is an online retailer for luggage, purses, backpacks and more. But don’t let the name fool you — they sell way more than bags. The company recently started selling travel accessories, jewelry, clothes and even camping gear on their site.
Boulder’s Shinesty curates, produces and sells clothes for the discerning frat bros and patriots in your life. Their online platform gives you access to thousands of items, ranging from suits emblazoned with your favorite NFL team to a hat with a tiny, jet-ski-riding DJ Khaled embroidered across the front. And they even sell vintage items like 90s ski jackets and a Jazzercise onesie.
Based in Denver, DENY Designs sells everything you need to make your house look amazing. They partner with artists and designers to put their work on different items like tapestries and cornhole sets. Everything is custom-made in the U.S., so you can have a cute house and support artists in the process.
Boulder-based Fanatics partners with the top names in sports to sell licensed merchandise online and through their mobile app. Browse by team, product or style and pick out your favorite team swag. If you’re looking for something more classic, fear not — Fanatics also sells sports memorabilia.
Denver’s Bold Betties is a platform where adventurous women can purchase clothes, accessories and gear while participating in community with like-minded individuals. Not fully committed to living the outdoorsy life? Bold Betties lets you rent certain items for less than what you’d pay to buy them.
