Golden Bear


A Secret Garden

Not sure what to get the woman in your life? The staff at Vail’s Golden Bear can keep you sorted out. It’s not unusual for them to hear, “I’m not sure what I bought my mom last year, can you help me?” Luckily, said creative director Nikki Chase, they take good notes. “We can tell people, ‘No, you can’t buy that, you bought that for her last year,’ or, ‘She’s got this and this and this, so she’ll want that.'” And besides, a little Golden Bear package goes a long way with warm feelings of goodwill.

Roxy is the hip mom’s dream-come-true. Owner Patti Weinstein buys clothes made for real people’s bodies, and it’s all high quality, too. She encourages mothers and daughters to have fun with each other ” and buying for each other. Since owner Susan Rapson Hilbert moved A Secret Garden to its new location, she’s been able to stock heaps more gift items. Though moms always like flowers, there are lots of little gifties, too.
