5 Green Boxes
With two stores located one block apart on Denver's walkable South Pearl Street, 5 Green Boxes caters to a hip and artsy clientele. The smaller store offers everything from scarves to pocket books, while the larger, 3,000-square-foot home goods store is a magnet for quirky, shabby-chic, whimsical home goods. The bright colors and friendly staff are a draw, but what keeps us coming back are the little knicknacks—like adorable glass terraiums—that work as gifts or personal splurges. If you're buying for someone else, ask for the gift wrapping.
