Hovey & Harrison has a thoughtfully curated display of one-of-a-kind gifts from talented artists and local businesses. Along with the signature Hovey & Harrison line of products, here you’ll find pottery from Logan Wannamaker, cocktail bitters and teas from DRAM Apothecary, and European textiles from Hygge Life.

Wannamaker Pottery is out of New Mexico and highlights the colors and textures of the southwest landscape. Artist Logan Wannamaker makes each piece from the earth’s materials. “I am influenced by the jagged edges of the slick rock canyons, the evolution of sedimentation that makes a cliff band individualistic to its environment or the rays of sun as they set underneath a handful of weathering clouds,” he shares. “I envision the work I create to be like subtle glances while driving a dusty stretch of a New Mexican highway.”

DRAM Apothecary makes bitters can lend themselves to the indulgence of classic cocktails and digestive benefits alike, be they enjoyed in a Manhattan or a simple cup of tea. The products are made using organic and wild Colorado herbs and without the use of synthetic dyes, flavorings, preservatives or flavor oils. All the bitters are alcohol and gluten free!

Pronounced hoo-ga, Hygge is the Danish art of creating joy and coziness in life’s everyday moments, whatever season or time of day. Alexandra Gove and Koen van Renswoude started Hygge Life in Amsterdam in 2014 after an inspiring trip to Copenhagen, where they discovered the Danish concept of Hygge. “A hygge home is not about decorating to perfection or spending endless amounts of money on furniture and accessories,” says Gove. “It’s about filling your space with things you love and creating moments in those spaces.”
