The Gift of Giving

Gifts for Yule is in its thirteenth year now, and it's no wonder the fair is still going strong. Every year, you'll find art, antiques, jewelry, beads, soap, knits, vintage, glass, clothing and so much more — handmade locally, ready to take home, wrap up and surprise your loved one on Yule, Kwanzaa, Christmas, Hanukkah, Festivus or other winter holiday of choice. Local mavens Christina Patzman, Willa Fuller, Diane Freeman, Jil Cappuccio and others will be hawking their wares, so you're bound to find something for that hard-to-gift person in your life.

Best of all, attending Gifts for Yule is good for your pocketbook: Not only are you supporting local artists and crafters, but parking and admission are both free. The gifting extravaganza runs today from noon to 6 p.m. and tomorrow from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. We recommend getting there early so you'll have plenty of time to browse, ooh and aah; you'll need it!

Gifts for Yule takes place in the Historic Phipps Tennis Pavilion, 3400 Belcaro Drive (and this is the last time it will appear in this elegant location); call 303-618-3669 or visit
Sat., Nov. 13, 12-6 p.m.; Sun., Nov. 14, 11 a.m.-4 p.m., 2010
