Denver’s River North Workshop is a unique place to find Made in America items for your home, including many made right here in Colorado.

5280 Home editor Hilary Oswald took Theresa Marchetta there on a recent trip to show her how few simple items can make an elegant table for a dinner at home with friends.  Of course, Hilary doesn’t think those beautiful items should only be out for dinner parties.

“I believe in buying the thing you love and using them every day, not storing them away for a special occasion,” she told Theresa.  “Anytime you have a meal, you should have a pretty place setting.”

River North Workshop offers a variety of products and classes.  Customers can take workshops on things like hand lettering, macramé, knife skills and even making their own bitters for cocktails.  They can also pick up products for their home ranging from place settings to eco-friendly cleaning materials, pet supplies and even beard oils and balms.

You can learn in this month’s edition of 5280 Home.
