La Cache Reopens With New Days & Hours

By Marcia Ragonetti
   La Cache, “offering upscale antiques for a good cause,” is now welcoming back shoppers and consignors alike – with masked smiles and friendly elbow bumps. Both you and Children’s Hospital Colorado are the beneficiaries of this happy event and we couldn’t be more excited.
   After a four-month hiatus, we are now carefully and thoughtfully reopening with NEW sales days and hours: Wednesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. For the present time, Monday and Tuesday will be closed for sales but open and reserved for consignments by appointment only.
   La Cache is well known as a place for extraordinary treasure hunting. Among its trove of consigned items are china, crystal, sterling, jewelry, rugs, glass art, framed artwork and furniture—some 2,000 tags currently in store! Donations are also unusual, one-of-a-kind items and bargain priced with the added bonus of 100% of proceeds from these generous donations going to the hospital. Since 1982 the shop has contributed more than $5,000,000 to enhance the many critical programs and services at CHC.
   Besides our unique merchandise, we have an unusual business model. There are no paid employees at La Cache, only a dedicated cadre of 50+ volunteers who cheerfully and tirelessly assist shoppers with their purchases and consignors with their entrusted valuables. We also have scheduled markdowns on all consigned items and periodic 50% off sales of our “RDF” (Red Door Fund) goods housed in our “404” annex. All combine to keep our loyal and enthusiastic customers returning again and again.
   For those with COVID-19 concerns, know in advance that we are following public health and hospital guidelines as well as government mandates. Well-fitting masks are required to enter the shop and must be worn at all times. Be advised you will be greeted by one of our volunteers as well as a healthy squirt of hand sanitizer. They will explain our new, safer traffic patterns and point out directional arrows throughout the shop which serve as reminders to practice social distancing. High-touch surfaces are regularly disinfected and touchless payment options are available. Plexiglas shields have been installed in key areas – at checkout and at our ever-popular jewelry counter — for the protection of both our volunteers and shoppers.
   We at La Cache are thrilled to have our doors open again for your benefit and all those at Children’s Hospital Colorado. Our shelves, walls, floors are currently being refreshed and restocked with new merchandise to tempt and delight you so come visit us soon. La Cache is located at 400 Downing Street in Denver and is open Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Consignments by appointment on Monday and Tuesday only. For more information call 303-871-9605.
