Playing Tourist for the Day

During Spring break a few weeks back, it occurred to me that I had been living in Golden for two years and had yet to really see any of it. So having nothing to do for a few hours I decided to play tourist for the day; or at least till Bob came back from his 40mile bike ride(such an over achiever. So armed with my new camera (and leaving my wallet at home to avoid temptation) I bravely ventured in to town.
First Stop: The Rewind Consignment Shop

During the week I park right across the street from this place and have fought with myself many times about going in or not. I have to tell you, I really wish I had gone in that first time. This shop is one of Golden’s hidden gems.  It’s located at the corner of 13TH and Arapaho street, across from the church. The store owner’s name is Kerry and she’s been in business since 2009. She has a great personality and is very easy to talk to. You can tell how much she loves what she does.

Rewind was voted Best of Westword 2011. They carry a wide range of good quality items from furniture to clothing and accessories, purses and other various around the house items. This place is great because there are always new items coming in. You never know what you are going to find, so visit often. I went back a few days later and scooped up a pair of blue open toe flats for just $12 and LOVE them. :)

If you're interested in selling something, go talk with Kerry. Once the item passes inspection you both agree on a price and profit is split 50/50. Not a bad deal. I’m thinking of taking in some dresses that have been sitting in my closet for the last few years. This is definitely worth checking out!
