welcome to period six!

At Period Six, we believe that every item has a story, and every story deserves to be told. As a mother-daughter duo, we’ve combined our passions for creativity, community, and craftsmanship to bring you a curated collection of artisan-made treasures that are as unique as they are vibrant.

what's with the name?

Our name, Period Six Studio, has a special meaning to us. On our travels together, we discovered vintage wood letterpress blocks -one with a "period" and the other with the number "six." These blocks became a symbol of our cherished times together and the enduring legacy of craftsmanship.

:: Interestingly, our store is located in Golden, Colorado, and gold happens to be in the 6th period of the periodic table :: a delightful coincidence that further enriches our story.

our story.

Period Six is one branch of our story together. First we are mother and daughter, but this leg of our journey began with a shared love for all things colorful and beautifully crafted. We wanted to create a space where creativity thrives and where every item sparks joy and inspiration. From the heartwarming stories of the artisans we support to the smiles we see on our customers' faces, Period Six Studio is built on a foundation of passion and purpose.
