When imagining her shop, owner Bridget Mitchell had so many details swirling around in her head. But, she always knew she wanted to create a place that inspired people. “One of the best parts about visiting Red Lark is its proximity to our awesome local neighbors. We are in the middle of a great street in one of Denver’s oldest neighborhoods—situated between a wine bar, café, yoga studio, hair salon, and tons of restaurants. Red Lark is a place where everyone is welcome to slow down, wander, shop quietly, or enjoy a friendly conversation with our team. We also love sharing the stories of our artisans and take pride in what we do.”
Just under a year old, Red Lark has a unique stamp on the local retail market. With quality and functionality top of mind, Mitchell puts all the products she sells to the test in her own kitchen. “I absolutely love Farmhouse Pottery, a family-owned American pottery studio in Vermont. They create the most beautiful and functional ceramics nice ring to it.” She also loves the procurement process and carries a large selection. “Red Lark has everything from handmade ceramics to kitchen tools/accessories, cookbooks, barware, baby gifts, jewelry, leather goods, décor, bath and body products, and so much more. I also offer a small selection of seasonal products, but I tend to gravitate toward goods that can be enjoyed year-round.
“I grew up in Colorado, and until recently, had a very different career path. I’ve worked for small businesses, large corporations, and was an officer in the U.S. Navy,” adds Mitchell. “I’ve moved around and I’m so glad I settled in Denver. I always loved the idea of having my own shop and I pinch myself when I look around here. I hope the support for shopping local continues.” And, so do we.
