“I’ve been trying to get our local news outlets to do a story about all of the women-owned businesses that contribute immensely to making Broadway the fiercely unique and inclusive neighborhood it is, but since they didn’t jump at the chance, I figured I’d tell you myself! I am building this Hope Slinger’s Guide to make it easy to spend your money with intention. It shouldn’t be hard to find the women-owned businesses in a neighborhood, but right now, it is. That’s goIng to change. Stay tuned for more info about our Inclusive Business Directory!”

But we have all been here too…. your alarm doesn’t go off, your coffee spills on your new white blouse, and your hair has an awesome cowlick….. quite frankly you are a hot mess.
Sometimes we have it rough. But our rough edges make us the people we are. The perfect pair of skinny jeans and the fat pant days are both part of being human.
Here at Haute Mess Beauty Bar we want you to be your full self. We offer an environment of support, beauty, and fun that is a good fit for all. If you are going to be a mess, you might as well be a haute one. “
Quality Paws was also at the forefront of environmental responsibility when we stopped using plastic bags well before people realized it was the right thing to do. We also recycle as much as possible and source our products from local suppliers when possible. All of our pet clothing, beds and leashes are made in the United States or Canada.
In addition to stocking everything you could need for your dog and cat, we also feature CBD for pets and their people. We source all of our Full Spectrum CBD from Colorado-based companies that grow their hemp in Colorado.
Quality Paws moved to the heart of Denver’s Broadway Corridor in 2008, where we have been heavily involved in the local community. We have lived in the community for 20 years and have been extremely supportive of local initiatives including the Rocky Mountain Alley Cat Alliance (currently known the Feline Fix). That is why you might notice some friendly, yet feral, cats safely roaming around our store. Our store has helped rescue over 300 feral cats and we loan traps and offer education on proper Trap-Neuter-Return protocols. We would be happy to answer any questions you might have about feral cat rescue!”
