Get a head start on the holiday shopping at the Unique Boutique

For more than 25 years, local artists and crafters have hosted the Unique Boutique, Glenwood’s kickoff to the holiday gift-buying season.The Boutique, a festive sale of handcrafted and baked goods, takes place from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday (Colorado Election Day) in the Devereux Room of the Hotel Colorado.Items for sale will include Raggedy Ann dolls, dried flower arrangements, handcrafted jewelry, gift baskets, body soaps and lotions, woodwork pieces, baked goods, and an extensive array of holiday ornaments and decorations.”It’s a great way to start the holiday season,” said Beverly Rude, of the Hotel Colorado. “It definitely offers the homemade touch with unique, one-of-a-kind gifts from various artists from Colorado.”During the Unique Boutique, Valley View Hospital Auxiliary will raffle a handmade quilt and Xi Sigma will sell various baked goods. Rude said the event usually takes place alongside Colorado’s election polling at the hotel, but this year the ballots were by mail.”That might throw a few people off, but there are a lot of locals who look forward to the Unique Boutique every year. A lot of people come before or after work, and during lunch. It’s a wonderful holiday fair.”
