TAG, They're It: Telluride High School Starting 12/4

Everything old is new again. Turns out the Telluride Artisans Guild (TAG) is right in step with the times. According to The New York Times, (Home section, 11/26): "The human touch rules this year."  TAG, under the auspices of the Telluride Council for the Arts and Humanities, hosts its annual holiday bazaar featuring homegrown work by popular regional artists. Over 30 booths are set up for irritainment-free shopping in the Telluride High School cafeteria. The event takes place Friday, December 4, 5 –8 p.m., Saturday, December 5, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m., and Sunday, December 6,11 a.m. – 3 p.m.

The TAG bazaar, now close to 40 years old, offers one of the best places around to find gifts more from the heart than from the wallet. Clint's iMovie offers a sneak peak at the wide variety of items for sale.
