Caboodle is a unique store which set out to make the world a better place a little bit at a time. The impetus for Caboodle came when I was a La Leche League Leader and met mothers who were crafty as well as talented. These moms would often craft a gift rather than buy one. I thought it would be really cool if there was a store where these stay-at-home moms could sell their items without having to produce them by the hundreds. Our gifts come from small home based businesses, crafters, artists and young entrepreneurs. Some of our items are unique in that they are reusing an item in a new and creative way. Ultimately, we strive to offer unique items that are handcrafted locally and gentle on the Earth. This makes the world a better place one little corner at a time.
Caboodle is shopping with a conscience!

Testimonials

I love your store…it is my go-to place for unique gifts!

Great little shop! Wonderful customer service. They went out of their way to quickly make a matching necklace for some cute earrings that I purchased there.
— William
This is my very favorite little gift boutique in town because every single thing in it was handcrafted by Colorado artisans. Caboodle has a unique variety of gift items and things you just can’t live without, such as jewelry, candles, soaps and lotions, seasonal items, bags and wallets, pottery, glass and metal knickknacks, tchotchkes and decorations, and even things like teas and dips and sauces. The owner is so friendly and she is happy to show you around the store or help you pick out a gift. She’ll probably point out something you didn’t even happen to notice yourself. I am addicted to the organic soy candles from Evergreen Candles that come in so many different scents. I have several and change them all throughout the year depending on the season. The soy candles burn longer than paraffin wax and they smell so real because they’re made with pure oils. They also liquefy as they burn, leaving less of a residue in the candle holder so it is easier to clean once your candle is finished. I’m so happy Caboodle is in my neighborhood. And I love the thought of keeping my dollars right here in Colorado. I hope you’ll stop by and discover your next treasure in this locally owned store dedicated to locally sourced creations.

This is one of those little finds that left me wondering why I hadn’t stopped in before. It sits right next to one of my favorite coffee shops. If you are there make sure you stop in here. The store is full of fun gifty items and specialty things made in Colorado. The lady with whom I spoke when I was there was incredibly knowledgable of the inventory (probably the owner). She said there were only two items in the whole store that weren’t made in Colorado and that no one has guessed correctly which they are! I love this shop. I found some of the nicest smelling soaps I have found here too. Check it out, it’s fun!

Every trip I make to Caboodle reveals something new and beautiful. Marlene is wonderful, and has great neighborhood spirit. My visits are always memorable, not to mention the wonderful gifts I’ve found for friends, family, and me! No doubt you will find something you love, too.
— Janet
This is the only place I go to buy gifts for my girlfriends. I adore the handcrafted jewelry, especially by the woman who uses stones and then little dragonflies and things on top for her necklaces—I cannot remember her name. The prices are reasonable and I love that everything (except the things hanging from the ceiling) are made in Colorado from local artisans. I bought dozens of super cool sushi plates of all sizes, dual wasabi, ginger bowls and chop sticks for our annual Christmas Eve party. I used some of the plates as candle holders around my bath tub—divine. I called the owner in advance of Christmas to put aside some things I like to “direct” my 24 year old son to. I adore this store.

Great place to find a variety of products made by local artists. Unique gifts and specialty items. Most items are geared towards woman, but you can still find something for guys. Fun place to shop, for sure! Some things are a bit pricey, but you can still find reasonable prices on a lot of items.
