Faire Brings Indie Retail Fest to Tennyson Street, Denver

April 29, 2024  |  By Faire

In honor of Small Business Month this year, Faire set out to find and shine a light on the unique independent retail districts that have managed to thrive despite the many challenges in today’s retail and macro-economic climate. Tennyson Street in Denver, Colorado emerged as a real bright spot. Together this thriving collection of specialty shops, studios, breweries, eateries, and galleries continue to hold on to the neighborhood’s historically rich character and local charm. 

In celebration of this active and resilient indie retail community, we’re supporting the local shops on Tennyson Street with Faire’s first Indie Retail Fest, a day of in-store events, a shop crawl, live music, and celebration to close out Small Business Month on Saturday, June 1st.

Indie Retail Fest will provide locals an opportunity to support the independent businesses that make this neighborhood so special, like Miller Lane Mercantile, Lady Jones, Overgrown Home and Wild West Baby, while joining together for unique shopping experiences and celebration.

“I love that our customers genuinely want to support small and local businesses. It really is an incredible community,” said Wild West Baby founder Britni Jensen. “Local businesses truly are the heart of the neighborhoods they inhabit and what makes them each so unique. There’s no denying the convenience of online shopping, but shopping local evokes feelings of connectedness, pride, and camaraderie you can’t find elsewhere,” added Miller Lane Mercantile owner, Calli Swofford.

“Tennyson Street is a vibrant collective of locally owned and community-driven businesses that care about their neighbors,” said Overgrown co-owners and operators, Anna Bernhardt and Nathan Samsel. “Shopping local means supporting your community by choosing to support locally owned and operated businesses over larger retailers. Diversity in local businesses is a big part of what makes Tennyson Street so special. Shopping locally allows that diversity to continue to exist and hopefully thrive for years to come.”
