This October has been a great month, and I have to give a major shout out to the people, organizations, blogs, shops (I support responsible buying), and sites that help me continue to spread the word about getting out of debt to finally get to living a life that’s true to you.
These sponsors support the goodness and not always monetarily. There are other ways to sponsor this site… trades, offering giveaways, etc. If you’re interested in the options or have an idea in mind let me know.
The sponsors of this site help me help others. Check ’em out!
I Heart Denver Store is a special retail project in downtown Denver (located on the 2nd floor of the Denver Pavilions) to support the local creative economy. It provides artist/designers with 70% of sales so they have greater access to capital so that they can grow their businesses. The store currently showcases over 70 artists/designers. The products available range from t-shirts, jewelry, original artwork, furniture, prints, house wares, and more! Each week new items are added and the store is constantly increasing its offering to provide the best goods designed and produced in Denver and the surrounding area. For more information about the program visit the website and their Facebook page. There are a lot of exciting things happening in Denver’s growing creative sector. Visit the store to experience it for yourself.
“We are husband and wife with a boy called Søren and a boy called Silas. Our work is made from olde things, treasures found and recovered from misfortune and neglect, relics of the unusual, the confused and the macabre, cut and pulled and bound into wearable curiosities, inscribable keepsakes and useable treasures. We used to make them for ourselves and now we make them for everyone.”
Margaux and Walter Kent are the Philadelphia-based masterminds behind the durable goods they offer in their shops. The bag above is a strong one that would take on lots of day-to-day use. It’s one that would make a good investment.

They value healthy environments, believing human health, a good quality of life, and a reasonable standard of living are dependent upon clean air, clean water, biological diversity, planned urban and rural development, a rational population policy, and the sustainable use of resources. They also believe knowledge empowers those who possess it.
Jenny of Seahag and Walrus creates each treasure and they are each completely original and one-of-a-kind. She tries to use recycled, reclaimed, and used materials whenever possible. Which includes the packaging too! All the materials are animal-friendly too.
This is the place for you if you like: carefully chosen vintage that’s got major style, quality goods and if you’ve got a sweet spot for helping out ‘ol Mother Nature.
