Husband and wife Lon and Lauren McGowan founded this hand-curated design shop in 2013 in downtown Boulder, where they provide gifts and décor that perfectly suit cozy mountain life. The array of artisan-made gifts and goods here truly runs the gamut, from Donna Wilson’s adorable lambswool plush toys she hand-knits in Scotland, to super-soft hats, scarves, and throws, to more practical items like survival knives and study/desk necessities. Don’t miss Alpine Modern’s in-house line of candles, made with essential oils that evoke the Colorado wilderness (think: fresh-cut fir and fragrant cedar). The Pearl Street shop’s interior, replete with beautiful, natural-wood wrought in refined, geometric designs, is a sight to see in itself.
