S.B. Museum of Natural History

Join the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History for feel-good holiday shopping on three weekends in December with three favorite merchants: Anomaly Imports, Peruvian Imports, and 2KG African Imports! Free entry for shopping.

Check the schedule of vendors below to shop smart. Treat your loved ones to beautiful palm baskets, textiles, and other delights from Zapotec artisans in the Oaxacan Valley of Southern Mexico (Anomaly Imports). Let Peru’s “fiber of the gods”—alpaca fleece—astonish you with soft indulgences: from cute, cuddly ornaments and toys to stunning fashion statements (Peruvian imports). Turn the ordinary into the extraordinary with upcycled telephone wire baskets and bowls and other beautiful home décor featuring fair trade art from Zimbabwe, South Africa, and Kenya (2KG African Imports).

30% of sales support the Museum’s education programs and exhibits.

December 2–4 – Anomaly Imports & Peruvian imports

December 9–11 – Peruvian Imports

December 16–18 – 2KG African Imports

Note: This year, the Museum is replacing the big Folk & Tribal Arts Marketplace with these three pop-up weekends. They aim to offer you the best of the marketplace while minimizing the impact on the Museum’s regular guests and exhibits. Member and store discounts not available on Folk & Tribal Arts Pop-up items.
