We began as a small shop selling a unique collection of colorful pieces. We grew by incorporating the culture and ethos of our surroundings into our collection and approach. Our selection has evolved to become a well-edited assortment of local + contemporary designers and independent labels from the U.S. and abroad. The Gold Trout offers a unique selection of handpicked + small batch cards and invitations, exquisite gifts, home accessories, and custom stationery. Locally-owned and loved across the USA.  

We are a retailer, yes.  But, consumption is not part of our primary mission. We encourage thoughtful consumption based on the application of principles that honor the Earth + support artists and small companies to remain independent. Would you rather create? Join us for one of our workshops @19 West Main.  

We also offer hand-lettering and calligraphy services, custom painted signs for weddings & special occasions.  Please refer to Stationery + Invitations to view some of our brands we carry in-store for wedding invitations, parties, holiday cards, birth announcements, and social stationery.  Schedule an appointment for a call or in-house consultation.
