Artisan Leather Manufacturing, Wholesale/Retail
Breezy Mountain Leather
Breezy Mountain Leather is owned by Valerie A Szarek. It is a leather crafting business originally established in 1973 as a custom and repair leather shop in Troy, Michigan. Val relocated to Colorado in 1978 and has had several retail locations. Over the years, she designed and manufactured products for General Motors, Harley Davidson, Coors, Izzo (a golf strap), Crow's Nest Trading Company, The Territory Ahead, and Marlboro (a vest). She designed the first laptop computer case for IBM. This business has a long and prestigious history.
In 2007 Val entered the wholesale market selling handbags and accessories to retail stores, galleries and catalog companies. She reworked the designs into a high volume production format while keeping their artistic aspect. Val created sales materials, built relationships, etc. Over time, BML’s products were in over 400 stores. The products were embraced in New York, Arizona, New Mexico, Alaska, and Hawaii. BML’s products are particularly popular in the southwest.
The handbags are known as stunning, simple, classic, heirloom quality goods. The brand is highly recognizable. Val developed a novel and artistic method for inlaying semi-precious stones (such as turquoise) in the bags.
This is a turnkey business with enormous growth potential. Leather goods are always in high demand; these products keep their value. Everything exists to maintain and grow a thriving business: desired designs, access to raw materials, equipment, wholesale relationships, etc.
This lifestyle business has been fulfilling, contributing value and satisfaction to both the owner and all her customers.
It is up to the new owner how large they want to grow the business through internet sales, wholesale accounts, art show opportunities, Etsy, custom products, further optimizing the already efficient production, etc.
Included in the sale price is complete training with Val, a master leather artisan with 44 years of experience. Val is a wonderful and generous teacher and can also be available to help develop your new designs and patterns going forward.

Water Sports Equipment Rentals & Sales
This rare opportunity is a company that rents human powered water activity equipment and accessories. Main products include tubes, stand-up paddle boards, river rafts for whitewater rafting and fishing, canoes and kayaks. The equipment and accessories are also offered for sale (new and used) on the company’s website and in the retail store. Merchandise is listed on an attractive and sophisticated website with shopping cart and rental reservation calendars. The founder / owner of the business has one full time manager and the 5 part-time employees who manage the box truck from which the rentals are done on site at the local rivers. The owner does not personally operate the business. The company has very high usage on tubes during the period from runoff until the end of the warm weather season. Other trucks could be purchased to be dispatched to local lakes and ponds taking Stand Up Paddle Boards for similar results and added business volume. The company is located in a high traffic area in a fabulous well known town where it is very visible to passers-by. It has a very low rent due to a symbiotic relationship with the primary tenant. Marketing is consistent and effective and the business has a great high school and collegiate following as well as a strong tourist acceptance.
Here is an outstanding opportunity for someone with interest in the Colorado Lifestyle and related Outdoor Sports. It offers a solid business model with room to grow and would be perfect for someone who would like to develop growth in both rentals and sales while having fun living in a great place.

Children's Clothing Consignment & Boutique - Downtown Evergreen, CO
Adorable and Popular Children's Consignment Store in Downtown Evergreen is for sale!
Twigs has been at its current location since 2008. The current owner purchased the store in February 2015 with a goal and vision of growing an honest and integrity-based store which would provide the community with a budget-friendly option to sell and purchase like-new clothing, books and toys for their children.
This turn-key operation can seamlessly be transferred to the new owner. Current lease ends on 4/30/2017 and is assumable and renewable.
Loyal customer and consignor base. 300 new consignors since February 2015! An easy to use POS system is in place to enter, tag and track consigned items, sales and Consignor's account balance. Consignor's also have online access to their account available to them so they can see their account balance and the status of their consigned items.
An online appointment booking system is also available to help schedule and manage when consignors bring in their items.
The online store has unlimited potential! Currently all functions of the store are handled by the owner. There is a need and strong request from the customers and consignors for Twigs to offer furniture, maternity and NEW children's clothing. So there is a wonderful opportunity for a new owner who has the ability to add an employee or two, to relocate/grow not only the physical store but the online store as well.
