Truly BoHotique opened its doors in Downtown Golden on December 13, 2014 with a mission to support fellow local small businesses by carrying a variety of jewelry, accessories, bath and beauty products, and gift items crafted by local artisans and makers, with a strong emphasis on local, female owned brands.
We spoke with co-owner Nadine Wilson about her store and her favorite parts of owning a business in Golden, Colorado.
Good To Be Golden: Can you tell us a little about Truly BoHotique? What are some things that people may not know about your store?
Nadine Wilson: Truly BoHotique is a place for women to find effortless style. We cater to the fashion forward contemporary women who appreciate fashion while still maintaining a mountain casual style. We carry many boutique brands such as Love Stitch, Amuse Society and THML, as well as popular larger brands such as Tribal, BB Dakota and Free People (we’re Golden’s exclusive retailer for Free People!). No look is complete without accessories, so we also carry shoes, scarves, bags and jewelry. Our jewelry collection is predominately locally made, as we try and support as many local makers as possible.
G2BG: Why did you choose Golden?
NW: I live in Golden, I have another business in Golden, and I love Golden. But as much as I wanted to shop locally in Golden for clothing and accessories, there just weren’t that many options. There was a real need in Golden for another fashion forward boutique amongst all of Golden’s outdoor shops. Add to that the growth occurring in Golden, and we thought it was the perfect spot to open Truly.
G2BG: What do you like about doing business in Golden?
NW: We love being part of the downtown Golden business community, there’s a real camaraderie amongst the local business owners. It’s also fun to be part of a growing city and tourist destination. But far and away what we love most is our local customer base. Our customers have been so supportive of us, we’re so grateful for their loyalty.
G2BG: Is there anything you want residents to know about Truly BoHotique?
NW: As we started carrying more and more locally made jewelry brands, we realized that we can provide an outlet for small (predominately female owned brands) to bring their products to market. So we carry as many locally made brands as possible, including locally made bath and body products, gift items, and clothing in addition to our great jewelry lines.
