It may have been the craft beer movement that started it, or it may just be that Breckenridge’s cozy ski-town beauty inspires it, but more people are sharing their creative talents by taking hobbies and turning them into local entrepreneurial ventures.
This means when you visit Lodge by The Blue, you can shop big box stores, but you may find more locally handcrafted goods than you thought.
“The craft movement is alive and thriving in Breckenridge as more locals are sharing their talents, spinning side hustle into full-on artistic entrepreneurship. We’re hollering back to the days where handcrafted outweighs big box. And creativity is flourishing as our friends and neighbors pour their hearts into their craft.” –Lisa Blake for GoBreck.com
