A Talulah Jones 24 Days of Christmas: Day Two

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: All this month, Lohre will host receptions showcasing a different local artisan every night through Christmas Eve. Check Show and Tell daily to see who's on the night's roster.

Day Two: Nicole Wolsey-Neech

Nicole Wolsey-Neech goes by the business moniker of She's Crafty, and it's a name that fits her well: She's one of those folks who see new life in a scrap of cloth or a vintage button. A regular on the local DIY craft fair circuit, Wolsey-Neech is as likely to hand-stitch a rustic ornament of colorful modern fabric as she is to doll up a set of bobby pins with plastic flowers or transform a costume-jewelry blossom with a whole new look. Wolsey-Neech will lift the lid on her trunk of reborn tonight from 5 to 7:30 p.m. at Talulah Jones, 1122 East 17th Avenue; also, Christy Lea Payne's trunk show last night was so popular that's it's been held over for another night. Two for one! Such a deal. Visit Talulah Online or or the Talulah Jones Facebook page, or call 303-832-1230 for details.
