Local Legends: Edelweiss Imports
It all started when Marianne Kundert’s parents bought a deli in Brentwood Mall. It was her mom’s dream to own a café, and hospitality was in her blood. She loved to cook and bake, so they expanded the deli and began serving homemade tortes, baked every day with real ingredients.
Local Legends: Hidden Secrets
It’s not hard to spot Elisa Maxwell. If it’s not her infectious laugh that pulls you in, her indomitable spirit will. She’s the owner of Hidden Secrets, a gift shop that’s been a staple in Strathmore for 12 years. But “business owner” isn’t the only hat she’s worn in this town – she’s been a single mom to five boys, a scout leader, and a hockey mom.
Local Legends: Meet the Men of Durango Livestock
