Local gift basket shop opens
Colorado Artisan Foods & Gifts, a local healthy food shop at 820 Main St. in Louisville opened about a month ago. The company was originally internet-based out of Telluride, but owner Susan Kelley thought Main Street Louisville would be an ideal location. The shop carries Haystack Dairy, Bobo’s bars, Seth Ellis chocolates as well as green chili and apricot chutney from Durango, peppered elk jerky from Montrose and all-natural lollipops from Hammonds Candies, and much more. Gift baskets are also one of Kelley’s specialities. Visit www.telluridegiftbaskets.com for more information on the shop and goods.
