Meet the Maker: H A V E N

IMG_9572.jpeg

H A V E N is a lifestyle boutique in Boulder, CO that integrates vintage collectibles, women's clothing, small batch apothecary and home goods. Helmed by founder Michelle DeHaven, H A V E N is the perfect place to find a new autumnal statement piece for your wardrobe, a handcrafted piece to spruce up your home or an elixir or powder to add to your wellness routine - i.e. be sure to make a visit to their booth at the Fall Flea!


what does your brand truly mean to you?

Haven is my shop and it means I’m putting all of the things I love out there.  I aim to bring unique finds, indie brands, new ideas and a little spark of interest to people’s lives.

how HAS YOUR PROCESS EVOLVED OVER THE YEARS?

I thought we would be mostly about vintage/home and we’ve evolved into just about every category from clean beauty to handmade skateboards and cashmere!

What YOUR FAVORITE PRODUCT OR COLLECTION THAT YOU FEATURE AT HAVEN?

Right now, I’m all about the skin care line from Khus Khus and our giant Moroccan Lamb pillows.

first product you created?

Our custom candle with Wooly Wax!

WHY DO YOU DO WHAT YOU DO?

I love the hunt, and I love interacting with our customers as much as getting to know our vendors.

what's the best part of your day?

Same as most other shop owners I would guess…getting shipments!

advice to others seeking a similar path in life?

Have a plan and listen to your gut.

if you could work with another colorado brand, who would it be?

Julie Arndt!  Because she is rad and has serious skills!

best part of being a colorado business owner?

Every time you tell people that you are from Colorado, they get jealous and want to move here (as we all well know)!


on the denver flea wish list: 

Handmade wooden cutting boards made by the aforementioned Boulder local Julie Arndt to add to our kitchen counter or one of Moon Juice’s powders to add to our smoothies (who could resist something called Beauty Dust?)

We share a vent with the barbershop next store and get to hear a lot of dirt.
