A Talulah Jones 24 Days of Christmas: Day Six

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.

Jeanette Gaydos and Alisha Stovall, Verveine Designs

Top off your Monday with snacks and a bit of smart upcycling from Verveine designs; together, crafty friends Gaydos and Stovall create big, dangly jewelry using aluminum salvaged from soda cans, decorative papers and hand-formed sterling wires, as well as lovely retro-urbane handbags juxtaposing bright cotton-lined vintage and recycled fabrics with wooden handles. We see "perfect gift" written all over these wares.

Check out the Verveine trunk 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.
