ABOUT THE OWNERS

Cozy Cottage is owned and operated by a mother-daughter duo, Tammy and Taryn Ahlquist. The passion for this business began 30 years ago, when Tammy and her mother had a similar store in Loveland, where she discovered her love for home decor and her talent with displays. That passion stuck with her. Throughout the years, she would fill their family home with tons of seasonal decor. In fact, they had 11 different themed Christmas Trees around the house during the holidays! 

Eventually, Tammy planted the seed for Cozy Cottage doing antique shows and had a booth in the flea market. That flea market booth turned into 6 booths, and eventually turned into their "Barn Sale" at their family home. Taryn decided to get involved, and began helping her mom with these shows and sales. 

In 2008, they decided to open a temporary store front at Centerra in Loveland. It didn't take long for that "temporary" store to become permanent, and the rest is history! Taryn started working the business as a sales associate, but she quickly found her creative love with displays. Within the year she became the visual merchandising manager, and then a buyer, and finally partner for Cozy Cottage.

Tammy and Taryn do all the buying and merchandising together, they work together almost everyday, and they still want to hang out together after their work is complete. It doesn't get any better than that!
