ATTENTION: Collectors, Treasure Seekers, and Holiday Shoppers! The annual Folk & Tribal Arts Marketplace, the largest folk art show in Southern California, returns to Santa Barbara with nearly 30 vendors representing more than 50 countries, and featuring an amazing selection of baskets, décor, ethnographic art, furniture, jewelry, pottery, rugs, sculpture, and more. Whether you are shopping for a gift or adding to your collection or “just because,” you can shop around the world for the truly unique whimsical, practical, and exotic treasures. And while at the Museum, enjoy tantalizing cuisine at the Tribal Arts Café , stroll through the Museum’s picturesque grounds, and then continue shopping around the world.
The Museum Library’s Annual Book Sale will also take place on Friday and Saturday, December 6 and 7, from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM. A variety of gently used natural history books about Native American history, animals, insects, and more will be available for purchase.
Admission and parking for both the Marketplace and Book Sale are FREE. Proceeds from the Folk & Tribal Arts Marketplace support the Museum’s exhibits and science education programs, and proceeds from the annual Book Sale support the Museum Library’s Acquisition Fund.
