We're a family owned business based in the foothills of the rockies. Creating quality products since 1963. We have maintained the principle of customer first by offering quality product and excellent customer service since our simple beginnings.|
After vacationing to Colorado, Joe and Paula Pastuer decided that the small city of Manitou Springs would be the perfect home to their first business, The Glassblowers of Manitou.
Two generations since Joe and Paula started their business their children and grandchildren are continuing to offer handmade, unique product at competitive prices.

With the recent success of Twin Bears Embroidery they have continued into obtaining Christmas in Manitou, a year round Christmas store that has thrived since the early '80s.
Today we operate as one of the only custom hand blown glass shops in the US.

I have been purchasing my special gifts from The Glass Blowers in Manitou Springs, ever since I lived there in 1982!

Every time I give one of their pieces of unique art, it is received with a "Wow!" (Read More)
Nothing beats getting into the Christmas spirit every year. So to jumpstart my mood, I start heading to Saint Nicks as soon as fall hits and keep going until I'm well and truly in the mood! And my house is overflowing with things I've bought, including Santas, ornaments, garlands, mistletoe, bells, reindeer and anything else Christmas you can come up with! Saint Nick's is the ultimate Christmas shop in town!
