It started with a remarkable dream. A busy aviation studio, industrial in nature and doused in the smell of engine oil and creativity. In the back, a forgotten room, full of steam trunks and suitcases filled of forgotten treasures: the kind of trinkets that people hold on to, precious pieces that mean something - handcrafted and beautiful.
So, we created that room at Trunk Nouveau at Stanley Marketplace: a trunkshow packed full of love and local, a curious place to discover and explore.
Stanley originally began with a couple of neighbors who wanted to open a small beer hall. Through a series of fortuitous events, their initial idea grew into something much larger: a community-focused marketplace featuring 50+ independently owned Colorado businesses under one fantastic roof. Stanley aims to be a place for all of us to enjoy. We're in a quirky and interesting location, smack in the middle of two different neighborhoods, and we plan on being a positive force in both. As we say in our Stanifesto, we're here for good.
Presents with a Purpose...
Our Trunk Nouveau suitcases are packed with Independent and Local jewelry, funny cards, charm necklaces, gemstones, wooden toys, cool unique gifts and so much more... And, 6% of every purchase is donated to help ensure the survival of the Andean "Spectacled Bear" through the Spectacled Bear Conservation Society. Together, and by shopping small, we can do BIG things.
