Five Creative Businesses That Got a Boost at the Horseshoe Market

The Horseshoe Market, Denver's premier indie craft and vintage market, is gearing up for its fifth year with the first of four markets this weekend. Amy and Doug Yetman founded the indie market back in 2010 out of a desire to bring the community together in search of "creative gems."

Here are five of the businesses that have used the Horseshoe Market as a launching pad.
