The Golden Rule
Sometimes, a gal wants to step back in time. To take in the vintage allure of an old-fashioned holiday and escape the hustle and bustle. Alas, there is still shopping to be done and less than a week to do it. Fortunately, there’s downtown Golden, the historic little hamlet that is big on charm and style alike. And our favorite Golden haven is Baby Doe’s, the classic Colorado retailer known for its eclectic mix of casual clothing, gifts and accessories. We love proprietress Nancy Taylor Mason’s quirky taste and fab finds like silk ikat individually dyed and hand-woven scarves that glisten with color and the adorable repurposed felted wool sweater monkeys for the little ones on your list. What’s more, the location is just as unique as the store’s coveted collections. Years ago, Baby Doe’s housed a 1950s Fair Variety store. In fact, shoppers can still see the vintage “Wrigley’s PK Chewing Sweet” advertising mural painted colorfully on the boutique’s brick interior – a true testament to Golden’s rich history and Nancy’s love for nostalgia and meaning in everything she does. Baby Doe’s, 1116 Washington Avenue, Golden, Colorado, Ring 303.279.8100, www.babydoesclothing.com.
