A Talulah Jones 24 Days of Christmas: Day Eight

We're all hearing a lot of talk this holiday season about shopping local and what it means to a community. But Talulah Jones shop owner Robin Lohre is doing more than that: Beginning December 1, Lohre will host a reception showcasing a different local artisan every night through Christmas Eve. Check Show and Tell daily to see who's on the night's roster.

Mandy Yocom, Fern and Sprout

Fern and Sprout, crafter Mandy Yocom's sweet felted accessory line, is a frequent sight at markets and boutiques around town, offering Yocom's whimsical mounds of felt rosebuds fashioned into hair ornaments, shoe clips and other adornments. A Fern and Sprout headband is the perfect way to smart up your day, even when you're dressed in a hoodie and jeans, and the shoe clips can shoot a fabulous pair of pumps right into the stratosphere of cool, in mere seconds.

Yocom sets up her Fern and Sprout show from 5 to 7:30 p.m. at Talulah Jones, 1122 East 17th Avenue; visit Talulah Online or or the Talulah Jones Facebook page, or call 303-832-1230 for details. FYI: If you mention you're shopping for the Denver Waldorf School tonight, 10 percent of your total spurchase will be donated to the school.
