Denver Shops: Sous le Lit

This week I’ll be taking you on a journey from one side of the South Platte River to the other. Today, I begin on the northwestern side, at Sous le Lit, a shoe and purse boutique on Platte St. across from Wen Chocolates. (Sous le Lit also has locations in Littleton and at SouthGlenn.)

The first thing I saw when I walked in was a selection of disposable cameras and film cameras made from plastic. The clerk showed me a manual for the Holga (on the left), which is apparently quite versatile. Sous Le Lit cameras Denver Oct 2009

You can also find shoes there you won’t find at the mall,Sous Le Lie shoes 1 Denver Oct 2009

as well as accessories like this cap and scarf.

Another store that sells stylish purses is Unity on South Pearl.
