Hilary and Kevin Manger

What makes your shop unique to the Vail Valley?

Hilary and Kevin continue the Squash Blossom legacy by providing customers the highest level of service, as well as offering unique, one-of-a-kind pieces, from local and international artisans. Having grown up with precious jewelry in our blood, a sense of adventure in our mind, and a love of storytelling in our heart. For the past two decades we have worked as managers, artisans, and representatives alongside pillars of the industry. We are thrilled to apply our knowledge and craft a sensational shopping experience in the beauty of the Vail Valley. 

How would you describe your shops’s relationship with its customers?

We are a family business.  When patrons walk in our store it’s as if they are in our home. We welcome everyone with open arms, and create a comforting, informative, and hopeful memorable experience.

What is your involvement with the Vail community?

Again, we are a local family owned business. Ourselves, kids, family, and friends are all intertwined in the communities, schools, and organizations of the Vail Valley.  We are members of the Vail Valley Foundation, board member of Children’s Garden of Learning, volunteers at the Shaw Cancer Center, and part-time Vail Resort employee.

Do you offer special experiences?

Experience is what we are all about. Aside from the beautiful collection of jewels we have procured…we offer world class Finca-Deborah coffee, cold or warm beverages, and a cozy corner with the seasonal sporting event showing. We love the chance to connect with and get to know everyone who walks through our door. 

Our core value is community. We believe it is important to give back to our community and support those in need. We created the “Hope Bracelet” campaign at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Every bracelet sold contributes to the The Community Market, a local fund that provides food and supplied to families in need. 

In addition to our in-store experience, we have started offering mobile bracelet making classes and birthday/craft parties.
