When folks come to the high country for vacation or a weekend getaway they are looking for more than just majestic vistas and snow capped peaks. They often come seeking the unique atmosphere and culture mountain communities are known for, a mixture of traditional rustic charm and eccentric modernism.

For those visiting Granby this fall and winter Bombara Artisan Gifts offers a quintessential mountain vibe selling a unique mix of jewelry and artwork that’s right at home in the Rockies.

Bombara Artisan Gifts, 62429 Highway 40, Granby, is a new store offering jewelry, refurbished and up-cycled home décor items, art deco pieces and various items for interior decorating. Bombara Artisan Gifts owner and operator Barbara Netcalf is an artist who specializes in jewelry.

Originally from Denver, Barbara and her husband Clay moved to Granby four years ago to be closer to their children and grandchildren. For some time now Barbara has operated a home-based business called Lady of the Mountain Designs, which operates from a Facebook page, selling her own handmade gifts, jewelry and clothing accessories.

“We had a home based business for about one year,” said Netcalf. “Things clicked just right and we decided it was our time to do something like this.”

Now Barbara is showcasing her artwork in her own brick and mortar store and while most of the pieces currently available at Bombara are made by Barbara herself she has plans to begin showcasing other artists at the store as well, including plans to sell metallic art pieces for exteriors and yard accessories.

Bombara Artisan Gifts Grand Opening was Saturday, Oct. 24.

Bombara Artisan Gifts will be open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. You can also view some of the products sold by Barbara Netcalf on her Facebook page, Lady of the Mountain Designs.
