Thistle, a unique gift shop in Wellington, Colorado, has transformed from a regular shop to an innovative new format. From nice shopping to making shopping a party.

Thistle, located at 3713 Cleveland Ave, in the heart of downtown Wellington, always has featured fun, quirky items, many of which are handmade and one-of-a-kind. But, after four years of business in the cute, early 1900’s brick building, Kelly DeVries, the owner of Thistle wanted to provide her loyal customers with a brand-new shopping experience.

Thistle no longer has regular store hours, which may seem risky and strange, but here’s where the fun comes in. Thistle is now providing themed pop-up shopping party events instead. The parties have already begun with themes of plants and the holiday season. Each pop-up features new and different items that fit the theme. It has become a fun meet-up place for friends to chat, laugh and shop while picking up items that aren’t usually available.
