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.
Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
