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.

Adventuress Soap Co.
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.

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.

Appaloosa Knit Co
Hello, I'm Amanda, the person behind Appaloosa Knit Co. I'm a software engineer who used some of my extra time during the height of the pandemic to learn how to knit. After seeing the work of others on Instagram, I decided that I wanted to give it a try for myself. What had started out as something that was just for fun and something to do to pass some extra free time, quickly became a collection of hats with no idea what to do with them all. It didn't take long before I was sharing them with friends and family, which quickly turned into sharing them with anyone I could. Each hat is handmade by me from 100% natural wool fibers and with a lot of love. It's my hope that they keep you warm and cozy during all of your adventures.
Art of Left Field
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!

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.

Centennial Candle Co.
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!

Human Nature Designs
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.

Junk food is traditionally a naughty word – don’t eat junk food, it’s rot your teeth, make you gain weight, blah blah blah. I took the idea of something that is meant to be negative and wanted to make it all about positivity. Because girl, you deserve that donut AND that cute headband, mmmkayyy.
I grew up with entrepreneurial parents who were either hustling a paper route to be home with the babies or selling cars out of the front yard to make ends meet. When I grew up, I wanted two things: a family and a business I could call my own.
Along the way I learned that I didn’t just want to have a business to make ends meet, I wanted a business where I felt like I was helping others and where I could share my passion for body positivity. In 2020 I started to make and donate masks to healthcare heroes to help with something I knew how to do – sew! From there Junque Food was born.

As a child, I would visit the old Spanish Guild towns of my ancestors in the beautiful countryside of Ecuador. I would stand in wonder and see all the vibrant beautiful colors in the marketplace. There my eyes could hardly take in all the bright shades of the rainbow and the warm tones of home. Then my small fingers would dance with delight from the textures of the rich woven Alpaca blankets and scarves.
The amazing craftsmanship of a Alpaca blanket is something more than to just be seen; it’s something to be felt, - something to be cherished. It’s a gift from true friends and loved ones. It’s also the perfect gift to give to yourself as well. Alpaca textiles are timeless classics.
These blankets and throws are perfect for your bedroom, living room sofa, and around your shoulders on chilly nights and mornings.
I wanted to share a part of my country’s heritage with you and so I created Loom Colorado to be your best “local” source for Ecuadorian made Alpaca blended blankets, scarves, shawls, throws, ponchos, and much, much more. I wanted to create a website that could hopefully bring you the open market experience and to bring to you items that you will truly desire and cherish for a lifetime.

Welcome To The (Girl) Gang!
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.
The world of baby and toddler accessories can be overwhelming. As I was pulling together my baby registry in preparation for the arrival of our daughter in 2019, I had a hard time finding products that were neutral and functional. The main questions I asked myself were "what are the absolute essentials and will they work as needed?". To be sure of the answers, I decided to make those products myself.
It started with the basic essentials of the baby bib and the burp cloth, which are specifically designed to soak up the daily drool mess. Then, it was the pacifier clips, which keep pacifiers handy, clean, and double as sensory toys and teethers. And now, it has evolved to include the softest swaddles, stretchy baby and toddler headbands, fabric blocks, and the perfect scrunchies and tote bags for mama (with more to come).
Mar Designs is the place for beautiful and practical accessories for baby and mama. Each product is thoughtfully and lovingly handmade, from my home to yours.
My Momotaro is a Latino brand that produces hand-embroidered accessories & décor by artisans in Colombia, Mexico and Peru. Our purpose is to depict the talent and skill of these local Latino communities of women and thus empower all women artisans. As a direct result, all products sold by My Momotaro are unique and of guaranteed quality.
NB has always been a creative, but she never dedicated time to being an artist until 2020 during the lockdown. It was during that time when her pre-med endeavors were put on pause, and she was able to truly expand on her artistic side. During this time, she had the opportunity to road trip across the Western US, which inspired many of her pieces. From old historic saloons, to hiking, and skiing, NB fell in love with what the West had to offer, and that became quite evident in her art pieces she made along the way. Unlike traditional mountain-style art prints, NB's pieces incorporate her love for the mountains with a pop-art flair that she sprinkles into every piece. Life is too short to be scared of using bright colors in artwork!
The Naked Bandit Apres Collection is inspired in one part by all the time spent skiing, and another by all the time spent AFTER skiing. There's truly no better feeling than unclipping your ski boots, cozying up to a warm bar, and sipping a Hot Toddy or Negroni after a long ski day. That feeling alone can be captured in so many forms of my artwork, I couldn't limit myself to one piece, I had to make a whole collection of it.

On Point Beauty
We are the premiere clean hair care brand, founded and owned by South Asian and Black women. We wanted to go back to our roots and use Black and ayurvedic techniques and ingredients that illuminate natural beauty. We believe the health of our hair and scalp speaks volumes before we do. And hair care is essential to self-care.
Our vision is to be the number one women-owned clean hair care brand dedicated to providing products that promote healthy hydrated hair and scalp. Our mission is to enable people to feel good, look good, and do good, by embracing their fierce confidence and vicious locks.
We are based in Denver, CO. We started as a hair salon in Five Points, Denver – which is a historically black neighborhood. We saw that there was a gap for clean ingredient natural hair care products targeted to people of color. We then set out on formulating hair care products partnering with a South Asian cosmetic chemist. We have developed products that cleanse to stimulate hair growth and nourishes the hair and scalp.
Our products have amazing, vetted ingredients – and free of silicones, parabens, phthalates, no dyes, nor artificial fragrances.

Pink Lemon Modern Boutique
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.
Potter & Clay Co.
“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.”

I am a Colorado Springs native and I wanted to create something that represented my home in a uniquely feminine and beautiful way - thus born rockymountaincollective! My small business embodies everything I hope to push out into the community. My hope and prayer is for you to feel beautifully radiant and treasured just as you were made to be when you wear my work. 10% of all profits made go to a charity or someone in need, so if you support me by shopping small, following my instagram, or sharing my business, it means the absolute world to me and someone else as well! You were made to do beautiful things with your life, I hope my jewelry can contribute to you and your journey of that!

Salve Natural Body Care
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!

Sojourn Well - Coming Soon!
I am a Colorado native, multidisciplinary artist and certified jeweler participating in national/international shows and commissions in painting, sculpture, photography, and lapidary. Recognized twice by the National Endowment for the Arts for my invention in printmaking then again for my positive impact on the community with the 12 year old zero-use project I founded called ReArranging Denver. Assemblage art made from recycled materials such as “Green Roses” produced from the project has been sold by 20 Denver retailers, The Boulder Museum of Contemporary art, Museo, and the Denver Art Museum.
The Moxi Poppy - Coming Soon!
Toute Douceur started in a tiny apartment galley kitchen with no dishwasher. It started in a search for self-discovery – a need to find my meaning in life. In the beginning it was a simple desire to learn and develop the skills required to create with chocolate and sugar, but over years it has evolved into what it is today. Now, Toute Douceur has become a celebration of quality ingredients and good ol’ fashioned candy making techniques.
I wish I could say that I always knew that I wanted to make candy – but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. It was something I stumbled into, but also something that, once I found myself in it, I never wanted anything else. Since then, so much has happened to help me develop into the person I am today. From leaving an emotionally abusive marriage with my six-month-old daughter, to working a full-time job caring for a toddler, and still trying to build a business. Finding my true partner, best friend, and amazing father figure for my wild little girl, to finally being where I have been working towards for so many years – I am happy to say that the future looks bright.
Twin K9 Threads
Molly, owner and creator of Twin K9 Threads (TKT) finished her chapter in life of serving in the US Air Force and created Twin K9 Threads. She was inspired by her passion for sewing and her twin black Labradors - Sig and Letty. She absolutely loves being a dog mama to these two and loves accessorizing them with fun and seasonal bandanas to stand out from others. TKT bandanas have a secure feature by slipping a collar through the bandana, so that your pup can play and live their best life with their new favorite accessory.
Along with their bandanas, TKT also offers matching, unique, satin scrunchies as a way to mix or match with your best bud. So, treat your pup and treat yourself… you deserve it!
Unleash the Crunch
I started making dog treats out of my parents kitchen when I was in high school. Our Labrador Retrievers would get sick every time we gave them store bought treats so I decided to make my own. Over time, I added healthier ingredients to help aid in softer skin, better gut, and everyday nutrition.
In February 2021, my husband and I got our beautiful golden retriever, ASPEN. She is my everything! Unfortunately, she has the most sensitive tummy in the world and had to go on a prescription food. I decided to try out my treats on her and it PASSED THE TEST! I launched the business officially in May 2021 because I knew there are dogs out there, just like Aspen, that need nutrition and want treats.
