Monday Morning Chat: Five minutes with Christine Muzik, owner of Spirit Pass in Centennial Mall

Hometown: “Fairbanks, Alaska.” What brought you to the Craig area: “Rent was cheaper here than in steamboat. I moved to Colorado in ’93. My grandmother was in Denver and someone said Steamboat was nice. So I went there and all of a sudden the rent was really high and I saw an ad for Craig.” How did you get started with this business: “Ten years ago, exactly this month, I rented a little space to get rid of my crafts and I found that there was a need for something inexpensive in Craig, nice quality stuff that’s inexpensive. And then I found that there were some Native Americans that needed some money so it kind of worked out really well. But I wanted to bring stuff, something for everyone, because I believe regardless of how little or how much you make, you have a right to something nice at a decent price.”
