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. Changing the look of a room by tossing a new handmade throw pillow or bolster on the couch is an age-old home design tactic, but guess what? It works, especially if the pillow is by En Suite Limited, a local line of finely crafted felt pillows bestudded with whimsical felt flowers or trendy gold military buttons. En Suite's pillows are both cute and comfy, and they look like they might even stand up to a pillow fight or two. Decorate away. Meet Kathy of En Suite (who also makes brooches) and squeeze a few pillows tonight 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.
