Meet Our Vendors
Several years ago, I was invited to a gathering at a friend’s house where I created my very first mala. It took hours. Each stone was chosen with care, the design laid out and strung. The greatest challenge was found in the knots, carefully tied between each stone. Each step was full of beauty and meaning. With a background in both the arts and yoga, I immediately fell in love with the process as I found the intersection of my two greatest passions in one object.
Mala beads, with their roots in Hinduism and Buddhism, have been used for 1000’s of years to help focus the mind in meditation. Each type of stone is believed to hold a different intention, allowing you to carry your hopes and dreams for your life with you throughout your day.

Hi I'm Julie - the adventuress behind the Adventuress Soap Co.
The Adventuress Soap Co was founded in 2018 and our motto is "Shower. Adventure. Repeat."
I discovered a love of soap making back when I was an ex-pat living in China. One day, as I was walking along the leafy covered avenues of Shanghai, the scent of incense mingled with the humid air and led me to an idea: what if I made a soap and fragrance line inspired by my travels around the world? As a born traveler, I wanted to create a line of soaps and fragrances that could transport you to other places wherever you are. Fragrance is one of the most visceral of the senses and it has the power to transport you instantly back to a memory, place or person
I want my products to give you a slice of wanderlust wherever you are and I hope you make every moment into an adventure.
Daina, the proud owner of Adventurist Soap Co. lives in Morrison, CO, home to the world-famous Red Rocks amphitheater! She founded Adventurist Soap Co. in March of 2020 and built it on the belief that outdoor adventure and environmental stewardship foster happiness.
Daina fell in love with the idea of creating products that people love and a story that people resonate with. Her passion is to make products composed with the same beautiful simplicity as the nature that engineers them. The names of the products are inspired by the Colorado Rockies and terms steadily used in the outdoor community.
Adventurist Soap Co. is devoted to living sustainably and adventurously and to motivate those we encounter to do the same. Her natural skincare products make a great pairing for the eco-conscious shopper with the adventurous spirit. You can feel at ease knowing that her products are designed with your health and happiness in mind.
Algorythm designs was created as a remedial effort in the sustainable clothing movement, practicing these ethics diligently through the production of all of their products. The highest form of sustainability is the continued use of a product so we "re-design" brand new products that couldn't be sold by the original manufacturer. This gives the garment new life and another chance to enter the market with a higher value and original design. Owner, Crys Shannon creates each piece with a unique fabric design and uses stitch work and graphic design elements to give the concept dimension. Each jacket is a one-of-a-kind piece that will never be made the same way.
As a welder, fabricator, and machinist, Jacob collected expensive equipment. With an eye for designing, his wife, Brittany started looking at his work and wondered what else she could create with the same tools.What started as art projects for her son's nursery quickly turned into a full-time home-based Laser-Crafted Goods business.Since 2017, Brittany has been creating custom designed home décor, personalized gifts, wedding pieces, business branded items and so much more.
I've always loved baseball. I'm told when I was a baby I had colic and would only stop crying when a baseball game was on tv. As I got older my baseball love had highs and lows just like in any relationship. I remember hiding under the covers in middle school, watching Braves games on a tiny Sony Watchman black and white tv with an antenna, hoping I wouldn't get caught. I went to college in Boulder and hearing anyone utter the word baseball was rare. During that time I'd watch the World Series and that was it. Then I moved near the ballpark in Denver and all the baseball love came back. It's been there ever since.
Since childhood I either took or taught some kind of art class. I even went to CU Boulder as an art major.
I always thought of those as 2 very different sides of me. It never occurred to me that I could create a life for myself that revolves around both baseball and art. Then I made a necklace out of a baseball for myself. I had spent time searching for the perfect baseball accessory and was unable to find what I was looking for, so I made it myself. That's where it all began. My love of baseball and art led to the creation of Art of Left Field, a place where I can combine my passions. My primary focus is to take a real piece of what you love and make it into something you can wear, whether it be a baseball, a baseball glove, or even a beer can. Hopefully you enjoy the pieces I've made as much as I enjoy creating them!

Beth Conrey, the owner of Bee Squared Apiaries, a small beekeeping operation located in Berthoud, Colorado, has 125 hives in various locations in Weld, Larimer and Boulder counties. She began beekeeping some 20 years ago after reading a series of newspaper columns on beekeeping. Her friend’s articles inspired her to take a beekeeping class and the rest, as they say, is history. She started out innocently enough with just 2 hives and found herself fascinated. “When you are out in a lawn chair watching bees I remain captivated by the ability of this social insect to produce food for human consumption—the only insect to do so.”
The mission of Bee Squared is to “Bee Exponentially Better” as defined by the following:
- We will sustainably produce, source, harvest, pack and distribute hive products.
- We will provide our employees with a compensation and benefit package that exceeds the industry standard.
- We will donate a minimum of 1% of sales to pollinator causes.

Nicki Krob, who makes her home in southwest Colorado in the quaint small town of Cortez, has always had a love of candles (an obsession really!) and a passion for her state of Colorado. In 2017, as she was planning her wedding, she stumbled upon a candle making kit. She thought, “What a cute wedding favor this would be!” The rest became history!
After making favors for her wedding, Nicki began toying with candle making as a hobby, and soon after, her business was formed. The first candle she ever created was “The Colorado Spruce” with the intent that all her candles would be Colorado themed and have what she considers “fun little stories and tidbits” about the state on the back of her candles.
Colorado is “The Centennial State”, so naturally, Centennial Candle Company was born. Each product created by Centennial Candle Co. is made with simple and natural ingredients. What Nicki discovered in the process of building her business is her mission to surround YOU with the VERY best!
Ada’s dad had a very special and unique way of saying goodbye. Before sending her off, instead of simply saying ‘bye’, he’d make Ada promise to take care of herself.
When her dad became ill and was hospitalized, Ada became his primary caregiver. During that time, she stopped taking care of herself and as a result, the stress nearly ruined her skin. Ada could not find options to treat and soothe her sensitive skin. So, she created them! And, in the process, she learned about the true importance and positive impact of self-care.
Chuan’s Promise is named as a tribute and dedication to Ada’s dad and his request for a promise. It’s a simple yet powerful reminder for all of us to take care of ourselves!
Owner Dante has a background and education in sculpture and new genre artwork from which she showcased in LA where she lived. After a metal smithing class, she acquired a new material skillset to incorporate into the body of her sculptural work. Becoming quickly obsessed with the new medium, she began translating her sculptural forms into wearable jewelry designs.
In her studio practice, each new design is building on the last. She often finds small elements of previous designs that inspire her on the merit of their form. Pulling them forward to develop them into new ideas and a cohesive collection to keep her connected to her artistic foundations while bringing purposeful, powerful objects into the world.
DPJ Studio is committed to eco-efficient practices using only recycled metals and ethically sourced materials whenever possible. Dante primarily works with sterling silver and brass using the Lost Wax casting method, which means she first creates her designs in wax and then casts them into metal. Additionally, she uses fabrication techniques such as shaping and forming designs directly from sheets of metal and wire.

Emily Backus, designer and founder of Human Nature Designs, has a thoughtful, unique perspective on life:
Each one of us is a part of nature, and nature is a part of each one of us. With the urban-industrial shift in mindset, our true nature is easy to forget. We spend more time staring at screens than staring at the sky, and more time listening to computers pinging than birds singing. Yet, when we hold our relationship with nature in the highest regard, we reap the benefits of better health, extended longevity, and more meaningful lives.
Profound words, ones that inspired Emily to start a company that embodied her philosophies - Human Nature Designs. Emily sees her designs as a venue to help you pay reverence to nature and your favorite places in it. She aims to bring a different kind of souvenir to the market - one that is crafted with intention and a deep appreciation for Mother Earth.

I am Madhavi (pronounced Ma-duh-vee), the small business owner and chef behind Maia Foods (pronounced Ma-ya).
I grew up in the western city of Pune, India, and after spending some time in Europe, we crisscrossed the US for several years having had to follow our jobs. Finally, in 2005, our family, my husband and two daughters, made our permanent home in Denver, Colorado.
A lifelong educator, I inhabit two very different worlds of academia and entrepreneurship. By day, I teach at a local university in a teacher education program and train teachers and administrators. And in the evenings and weekends, I run my small business, which has allowed me to claim a tiny space in Indian vegetarian cooking. This journey brings me immense learning and allows me to connect with a community of small business owners, immigrant entrepreneurs, foodies, and chefs.
The food I make at home remains a reflection of my travel history. I continue to draw inspiration from the many people I’ve met, and the places, techniques, and ingredients that I have come to love. I started Maia Foods as a cottage business in 2019 when my daughters left home for college. I was looking for a way to share Indian food heritage and culture and when friends offered to buy my homemade ghee on a regular basis, the business was born. I love to demystify Indian cuisine and share it with others. This led to the creation of Indian meal kits such as soups, khichadi, rice, and dals and then to spice blends or masalas.
I try to spend a few hours every week practicing yoga and meditation or taking advantage of the beautiful outdoors of Colorado by walking, hiking, or biking on the trails.
I love connecting with customers so do reach out or visit my food blog for vegetarian and vegan recipes.

Hello! My name is Denise Taylor, and I am founder and owner of Pink Lemon Modern Boutique. I was born and raised in Northern Colorado and a graduate of the University of Northern Colorado with a degree in business. I currently reside in Highlands Ranch. Entrepreneurship has always been in my DNA. I owned a direct mail and packing company before becoming a Baskin Robbins franchisee with my husband. During my tenure, I always had an inkling to own a small gift shop. In 2018, my dream became reality and I began my journey in the retail shopping space and Pink Lemon Modern Boutique was born. It started as an online shopping experience and expanded into a brick-and-mortar space in a south Denver mall.
After surviving the first year of the pandemic, I found a product that I absolutely loved! After long hours of thought and consideration, I decided to take the boutique in a new direction. Pink Lemon now focuses on Puffin Beverage Wear. The unique Colorado logoed jackets, vests, parkas, sleeping bags, and wine bags are a unique gift item for everyone.
Over the past year, I have expanded the business to 4 locations and am very excited to see where this venture takes me. I could not have done any of this without the continued support of my wonderful husband Greg, who had tolerated my ever-changing mind and direction over the past 4 years and supports the business in all accounting and financial functions.
I am honored to be part of the Three Arrows Gallery exclusive women-owned business experience.
“On a snowy day in January 2021, a little girl weighing 4lbs 8oz made her early arrival. Our beautiful baby girl was born 8 weeks early. We didn’t expect it, it was the biggest surprise of our lives…but we believed and knew in our hearts that she would survive.
Due to our daughter being born early, she was taken to the NICU right after her arrival, I was unable to connect/hold her. My husband followed her as she was wheeled to her NICU room…Little did we know the battle we would face emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.
For the first few days of her life, the outcome was scary. We were not allowed to hold her. We just sat by her bedside and spoke over her health, her life, who she would grow up to be. This was all we knew to do. As the weeks passed, our baby girl overcame struggles and battles, we were amazed by her progress. She grew, she ate, she was finally healthy enough to come home with us.
We owe her life & health to the doctors and nurses of the NICU that cared relentlessly for her. We so appreciate all they gave to care for our baby. With this, we donate 10% of our monthly proceeds to NICU charities and support programs for NICU families. Our motto is “We give back for what was given to us.”

Salve’ (pronounced sal-vay) is another way of saying, “hello” in Italian. It comes from the Latin word salvare which means to be well. Erika studied art in Tuscany for a summer in college and liked the alternative greeting because of the way it sounded. For her, the word embodies those amazing moments in life that you stumble upon. When formulating products, Erika considers how the skin looks and feels after using her products; also, the experience while using them. Aromatherapy is a large part of the experience. Subtle scents can help with relaxation and comfort, while others can uplift or help contemplate.
Salve’ Natural Body Care came to fruition because Erika’s youngest son had eczema. The rest of her family also had severe dry skin and went through various body products that failed. She decided to start reading about essential oils, other natural ingredients for the skin, and lotion making. With a tremendous amount of research, divine inspiration, and A LOT of prayer, SNBC was born.
If one person's skin is transformed or they better as result of using our products my job is complete. Enjoy!
