We celebrate our one-year at the 60-year-old Whickerbill this month! The Whickerbill at Manitou Springs is a store with a long withstanding tradition in the Colorado Springs and Manitou area. Last year in March, my husband and I decided to buy one of our favorite local shops, make a few updates to the store, adding in our personal touches here and there. Our goal when we bought it was to honor the history of the Whickerbill since it has been in this area for over 60 years. Thinking back on that cold and raining March day in Manitou Springs when we hosted our grand opening, we knew we had a lot to learn but we also knew we had a lot to give so they we could continue making the Whickerbill a place for locals and visitors a must-see.
At the Whickerbill we blend elements of modern and whimsical design in our selection of housewares, bar accessories, kitchen gadgets and gifts for all occasion. We love to mix classic designs with vibrant colors, and match unique materials with practical craftsmanship. We are a kitchen gift and kitchen provisions shop. The owners personally select eclectic and elegant pieces for the home, “corky” wine essentials, and “manly” culinary items, and festive entertaining wares. for daily use, special occasions, and holidays. The Whickerbill also has unique gifts, hand cut crystal and pottery.
If you haven’t seen the Whickerbill stop in today! And, thank you to all our customers, visitors, and patrons. 2016 could not have been what it was without YOU!
