"Over the past 29 years in the same location the Artisan Center is a Denver landmark and community gathering place and through architectural default ensures that people meet, talk, help and come together in the marketplace spirit of community. Under the visage of its single owner, Ellen Seale Durst, the Artisan Center has been able to transcend retail from the common to the extraordinary by implementing and manifesting Ellen's vision:
"of creating a naturally magical experience that offers as unique collection of contemporary crafts in a safe and joyful gathering place for community/staff; to provide a venue for artisans; and, to offer legendary service." Once a drugstore, our loyal and emerging customer base comes to "their favorite place" to be reminded of the beauty and hopefulness of creativity. Our customers consistently recognize the Artisan Center uniqueness by repeatedly awarding it "BEST RETAIL ESTABLISHMENT" over the years. Our employees understand the challenge of being the keepers of the Artisan Center experience flame and refine our commitment to the community and connections with an employee longevity range extending from three to 24 years. In doing what we do the Artisan Center is able to daily "live its mission".
