Nora's Retro has been in the business for the last 30 years. Now, the women behind the boutique are owners Nora Partayan, Pauline Hawthorne, and Ari Depaola. The family and women-owned boutique sell everything from home goods, accessories, and closet staples. The boutique has a rich history.
The owner Partayan was born in Beirut, Lebanon. She knew at a very young age that she wanted to make a career in Fashion. She says that she went to fabric stores and asked for their scraps and left-over fabrics and started creating her designs.
At the age of 14, Partayan was successful in Europe. She utilized her impressive design skills with her factory in Lebanon. She moved to the United States in 1970 and opened her first location, Nora’s, Pearl Street Mall in Boulder, Colorado. The boutique quickly earned customers in Colorado and opened a second store. The boutique sells unique and fascinating designs.
