Telluride Council for Arts and Humanities presents TAG Holiday Bazaar

Bazaar at Telluride High School, December 3-5

 In her poem "One Perfect Rose," the acerbic writer Dorothy Parker bemoans the fact it's her bad luck to always get "one perfect rose," not "one perfect limousine, do you suppose?" from her true love. With money to burn, finding the perfect gift during the holiday season shop off – for your true love or anyone else on the list – is a cinch. On the other hand, most of have to make the thought count big time.

In Telluride, one of the ways to find gifts from the heart is to make them: the Ah Haa School for the Arts is running Xmas classes for adults and kids all month long. However, if you are not inclined to channel your inner Santa's helper, this weekend, in the Telluride High School Cafeteria, the Telluride Council for the Arts & Humanities presents the 2010 Telluride Holiday Arts Bazaar.
