A visit with Thomas Paul Althaus {Canned Goods}

Canned Goods founder, Thomas Paul Althaus

Yesterday afternoon I had the pleasure to spend time with Thomas Paul Althaus, brains behind Denver accessory company, Canned Goods. One thing that I’ve always noticed about Thomas is his absolutely positive energy that radiates to all that come in contact with him.

Canned Goods have been a staple in my wardrobe for over a year. As far as my wardrobe goes, I’m pretty simple, so I rely on my accessories to make outfits pop. And when I’m in Canned Goods, I feel glamorous! Upon further inspection of the fashionable pieces that he designs, one may be surprised to find out that they are all made with tin cans!

Learn about the Canned Goods story here from his interview on 9 News earlier this year!

Canned Goods can be found in boutiques all across the US and of course, in some of the best Denver boutiques too! The latest collection experiments with new shapes, cutouts, and even colors of tins. You can pair earrings with a a cuff and create a set, wear them separately, or even wear 2 different earrings (which I’ve done often)! Every piece of Canned Goods sold gives one can of food for each item purchased through the CAN DO GOOD program!

Today, I’m wearing this little combo that I love by Canned Goods!

One of the things that I love about Canned Goods is how light and effortlessly they feel when worn! My ears don’t like heavy earrings, but these earrings make a statement and I hardly even know that I’m wearing them!

It was so much fun hanging out with Thomas! I learned about his career in fashion that spans several years, producing fashion events nationwide, and being part of a hair product company that grew by leaps and bounds and is a global company now.

We’re all lucky that his path lead to where he is now! He’s able to be be a stay-at-home dad while pursuing his passion with Canned Goods, all the while, making us look good!
