What is Walnut Creek FOCO?

What is Walnut Creek?

Going into our fifth year, Walnut Creek Foco
has evolved and grown beyond a retail store.
It is more than a collection of artisan shops,
 with the addition of a professional and public 
studio venue, an adventure game and now we are
 part of the historical/ghost tours, we have become
 vital resource to the entrepreneurial artisan
 community in Fort Collins, Colorado.

We host over 70+ artisan shops on our first floor. 
Our vendor booths are full of one of a kind,
handmade items, eclectic found objects, upcycled 
quality furniture and industrial salvage, home decor,
 jewelry, clothing, crafts, fine art, vintage wares,
 antique treasures and always the best place to score
 the most unusual gift you hoped to find! 

Whether you are looking for Farmhouse, vintage,
 classic country, urban, industrial, boho, french provincial
 or an eclectic combination that suits only you!
 We will have what you are looking for at 
reasonable prices and top quality.

We have grown into that place our customers want
to just stop in and check out for fun! Our whole building
 is an adventure. It was built over 100 yrs ago, and still 
contains one of the two largest freight elevators
 located in our beautiful city. Our hand pulled elevator
 works and is just one of the fascinating elements
 of our building. It is full of architectural richness
 and still has its original wood floors and hand laid rocks
 that make up the walls.

We now have a puzzle/treasure hunt/escape room game
 located upstairs. Our game is unique, when you beat the
 puzzles, solve all the riddles and answer all the mysteries 
correctly you win a treasure map! This is a real map
 to a treasure somewhere in Northern Colorado! 

Somewhere Secret is ranked the number one Escape Room
 in Fort Collins.It is perfect for team building, 
birthday parties,family experiences or just for fun.
