When I first spotted the available storefront at Oak and College I got really excited. As a corner location with great windows on two sides, I envisioned a warm, welcoming and eclectic store offering an array of unique items — a location I could help maintain in an attractive manner and where visitors and shoppers alike, felt safe and welcomed.
Peacock‘s Perch is a great place to come in and enjoy coffee and a cookie, while perusing an assortment of treasures you might not expect to see assembled all in one place.
Among a wide assortment of treasures you will find home furnishings, wall hangings, natural-edge tables and benches, antiques, vintage items, jewelry, and hats along with stunning and unexpected pieces such as beaded bicycle wheels. Many of our upscale and original items are the work of talented local Colorado artists.
We seek out the work of “upcycle artists” who repurpose items in such unique ways as to give the resulting creation a higher value than the original item. In addition to their newly-created intrinsic value as works of art, these new creations help the environment. No longer discards, they are now worthy of gracing people’s homes. We believe this artistic approach will continue to become an ever increasing solution to our culture’s outdated discard mentality.
With items for purchase across a wide range of price points, we believe we are just the place for that holiday gift. Come in and say hello and help us celebrate our newly opened “adventure.”
Peacock‘s Perch, open daily, 11am to 6pm, is located at 162 South College Avenue at Oak Street, Old Town, Fort Collins.
