This event provides a vast array of gift choices and decorative items. From hand-thrown ceramics to one-of-a-kind jewelry to custom-sewn textiles to adorable items for children – the Holiday Marketplace, sponsored by Perry Ford of Santa Barbara is one-stop shopping for even the most difficult-to-buy-for person on your holiday list. From fine art to folk art, there will be delightful stocking stuffers, succulent wreaths, herbal products, locally-produced olive oil and honey, scented soaps and candles and much, much more. This event would not be complete without the offerings of the ever-popular Garden Guild crafters and their uniquely whimsical pieces lovingly created using all-natural materials.
In addition to the vendor booths, the Garden Growers Nursery will have unusual plant surprises and the Garden Shop will feature fun, new items and special offers as well. Perry Ford of Santa Barbara will have a number of environmentally-efficient vehicles on display including the ALL NEW 2013 Ford C-MAX ENERGI Plug-In Hybrid and the Ford C-MAX Hybrid. Santa will be on-hand to pose for photos, warm beverages will be available for a suggested donation, and raffle tickets are on sale for $5.00 each or 5 for $20 and prizes include: restaurant gift cards, gift baskets, books, and jewelry. To complete this extraordinary shopping experience music will be provided by Jim Clark (ukulele/singer, Saturday and Sunday, 10:30am-12:30pm), Jamey Geston
(acoustic pop/blues), Saturday, 1-3pm, and Agile Strum (acoustic pop duo), Sunday, 1-3pm.
