Shopping in Breckenridge can take place over an hour or two or it can occupy an entire day, depending on your interest in poking around, because there’s a lot to see. Retailers here offer a funky mix of classic mountain wear (think North Face, Columbia and Patagonia) alongside specialty boutiques ranging from home décor, antiques and art galleries to on-trend women’s clothing and souvenir shops where you’ll find a huge selection of t-shirts, hoodies, shot glasses and more bearing the town’s name and imagery. If your Breckenridge shopping strategy is dedicated to Western wear, you can channel your inner cowpoke in boots, 10-gallon (and other) hats, shearling-lined jackets and cowhide floor coverings. Lots of turquoise jewelry will also support your newly adorned Western outfit, while a selection of artistic, custom jewelers offer other stones and handmade shiny works of wearable art. Art galleries stocked with nature-themed works and others dedicated to whimsy will keep you feeling creative. Several Breckenridge boutiques offer cultural experiences, stocking all-Russian goods or shelves of olive oils from around the world (with plenty of opportunities for sampling).
