Gifts and Specialty Shops in Aspen


The perfect place for those searching for a little something out of the ordinary, Aspen has a unique blend of gift and specialty shops which run the gamut from quirky and cute to historic and useful.

No trip to Aspen is complete without a visit to Carl’s Pharmacy. This Aspen landmark is a real “mom and pop” shop. Operating as a working pharmacy since 1965, Carl’s has two floors brimming with a variety of necessities, kids toys, souvenirs, and just about anything else you can think of. Those with an eye to the past will especially appreciate the old-fashioned wooden toys, as well as nostalgic gifts like silly putty and slinkies. And before you leave, make sure you place a pin on the map to mark where you’re visiting from and see from where others have traveled.

Not to be outdone, The Emporium and Flying Circus is as interesting as the name implies. This quirky shopping experience is a must see, where you’ll discover a maze of tiny rooms overflowing with eye-catching items, many of which have been repurposed.

As a nod to its past and old-west heritage, Kemo Sabe is the only place in Aspen for genuine Western-style boots, belts, buckles, leather goods, and that hallmark accessory of the rancher, the cowboy hat.

Meander through town and discover a guitar shop selling one-of-a-kind instruments or an old-school bookshop where you can smell the vintage pages from the shelves of novels and how-to books.

Consignment shops dot the landscape, but locals know that Susie’s Consignments has the best clothing for men and women, as well as uncommon furniture, home goods, jewelry and rugs. Meanwhile, Pitkin County Dry Goods is where locals shop the latest trends for a sophisticated look.

When you stay with us at Hyatt Residence Club Grand Aspen, you’ll be sure to find just the right keepsake in the unlikeliest of places.
