Starting in Boulder and making its way to the hotspot of Denver, Common Era has become quite the popular shopping spot.Starting in Boulder and making its way to the hotspot of Denver, Common Era has become quite the popular shopping spot.
Back in 1991, owner Debra Mazur decided to get down to business opening her own store: Encounters of the Second Kind. Eventually it needed a different name to better fit its unique style, and so became known as Common Era.
It started as a small vintage and used clothing store, but quickly moved to representing a variety of different styles. However, her trademark vintage fashion still soaks through her current clothing lines.
Sales associate Juila Kasid, who has worked for Common Era for three years, started working there because she “really liked the clothes in the store and the owner.”
Common Era has events that go on throughout the year, a feature that sets it apart from other clothing stores. One of these events is a fashion show held in the area of its flagship store in Boulder. Common Era also participates in Fashion’s Night Out each year to show off its signature styles.
It takes a certain sense of fashion to walk into this store and enjoy what it has to offer. There are many lesser known brands that are certainly worth testing out. These include Elsey, C Luce, Piko 1984, Lush, and plenty more if none of those catch the eye.
Kasid said the store has a variety of styles, including anything from classic to edgy or fresh. There’s something there for everyone.
It’s smaller than a regular clothing store, but there is definitely plenty to offer. Not only is there a variety of clothes, there are hats, accessories, and more.
They have rompers, summer dresses, and slick business wear with a touch of suspenders. Then there are perfect scarves to match each outfit, and necklaces to pull it all together.
If that doesn’t do the trick, check out the colorful trench coats and sweaters. Classy and cute or just plain eclectic—either way, just make sure it’s you.
“If I moved out of the Denver area, I wouldn’t know where to shop because I am here so often,” said Kasid. She first saw the store in Boulder and loved it enough to work there.
Walk in with whatever behavior and personality, and walk out a whole new person, with a sexy new dress. In order to get everything out of this store, strut down the street with confidence in its style.
According to Kasid, the owner is very selective when hiring people so there is a solid group of people to help out customers when needed.
“All the people working are basically a family and a lot tighter knit than other businesses might be,” said Kasid. “Debra has created a great environment here.”
