The gift shops in Grand Lake are a real contradiction to what is the norm in a resort town.  Far too many resort towns are littered with shops selling "trickets and trash".  Instead, Grand Lake has shops with unique quality merchandise that are staffed by friendly people who really care about their stores. 

The overall theme of most shops is primarily outdoors related products for the home - furniture, rugs, paintings, lamps, tableware, accessories, towels, condiments, etc.  If you don't see an item you want in a given store, ask them and they are more than willing to attempt to direct you to someone who may have it.  Be prepared for them to remember you and ask if you found the item should they run into you on the street.  

Shopping Grand Lake is simply an enjoyable and rewarding experience!
