Telluride Arts: Holiday Arts Bazaar, 11/30-12/2


Holidays making you feel blorfty?

Can’t say cause you don’t know what blorft is?

“Blorft” is comedian Tina Fey’s way of describing angst, holiday angst included. According to the superstar comic, the adjective is shorthand for “completely overwhelmed, but proceeding as if everything is fine and reacting to the stress with the torpor of a possum.”

Part One of the holiday trifecta, Thanksgiving, is OVER. Thank heaven. You ate too much, but next day, you ran off the guilt, right? Now it’s on to the Really Big Stressor, Christmas –  at least the secular version of the holiday, when, Puff!, like magic, people we care deeply about morph into boxes to check off on a holiday gift list.

Need some ideas?

For the lady in your life with everything, how about Victoria’s Secret’s annual holiday over-the-top (pun intended) bejeweled bra for somewhere in the neighborhood of $2 million clams to support, umm, the sisters?

How about a His & Hers Rolls Royce Limited Edition Dawn Coupes for just north of $400,000?

A Dolce & Gabbana Refrigerator for a mere $50,000.

For the little girl in your life, a year’s supply of Madame Alexander Dolls for $8,000.

A Waterford Crystal Flower Bouquet vase, just $950.

Not part of the .01 percent?

Or you just don’t want to flaunt it.

Unfurrow your brow.

Stop gnashing your teeth.

There are ways to make amends – and friends.

And they are homegrown, piggybank-friendly – and local.

Visit Telluride Arts for the 45th annual Telluride Holiday Arts Bazaar to kick off your Christmas season.

As in previous years, the Bazaar features unique gifts for everyone on your list, all created by over 30 vendors, favorite regulars and new artisans too. Expect to find greeting cards, gourmet tea, pottery, prints, handmade winter accessories, purses, bags, belts, cards, soaps, ornaments, phone cozies, pet portraits, cashmere, chocolate treats, and so much more. 

“You bring yourself, and we’ll bring the CHEER,” says Molly Perrault of Telluride Arts.
