   With over 30 years of collecting on her own, Michelle inspired Chelsea at an early age to love things old and pre-loved. Opening a store has been a lifelong dream for them both. The inventory that they’ve accrued is impressive; from vintage teddy bears, Americana, primitive chippy-paint furnishings, mantiques, industrial, farm junk, pottery, to tiny whisk-brooms. Their rare finds show off an eclectic mix of eras, styles, and staging.    Starting in 1998, Michelle began creating and selling her own handmade primitive dolls, along with collecting antiques. Her dolls were sold in local retail stores in Littleton, Lakewood and Westminster. As well as selling to individual local retailers, Michelle was also featured in several editions of Country House Magazine. Growing up, Chelsea would spend countless hours in her mom’s craft room watching and learning, then later becoming a soft sculpt artist herself. The two began sharing and selling their handmade creations at several well-known shows in the Denver area. They hosted 3 different pop-up boutiques in the summer of 2018. Finally, becoming tired of the set-up, tear-down routine of shows, the ladies decided to find permanent residency. To this day, this mother and daughter team design and create items that are only sold at Kitschy Witch Boutique.
   Kitschy Witch is also home to over 20 local, talented artists and collectors who display and sell their beautiful vintage, and handmades. Each vendor designs and merchandises their things to suit their own personal style. All of these artists and collectors were heavily juried, hand-picked and then invited to be first to represent this eclectic shoppe.
   Many followers ask how they came up with the name, “Kitschy Witch.” Through our years collecting, we kept stumbling across different sizes and versions of the notorious Kitchen Witch, which originated in Norway back in the 1800’s. Chelsea and Michelle created a hand-sculpted, and hand-sewn version of these adorable good luck witches. These unique witches make a statement, as no two are alike, with a personality each their own, and can only be found at Kitschy Witch! The word, “Kitschy,” has become an adjective of cutesy, or even tacky, amazing vintage! Kitschy Witch is Colorado’s newest and cutest vintage boutique, chalk full of all the things that you will love!
