uring fall and winter when temperatures

dip, the local arts scene heats up. It’s the

perfect time to grab a sweater and head out to

explore works by Santa Barbara area artists and

shop for locally made holiday gifts.

Oliver and Espig Gallery of Fine Arts

(oliverandespig.com)

has offered unique

and rare colored gemstones, jewelry and art

for more than 40 years and always merits a

visit. Their gallery now includes a boutique

devoted to South Sea golden pearls. A ring

featuring a stunning 15.33mm golden pearl

recently won Oliver and Espig their second

consecutive American Gem Trade Association

SPECTRUM Award, a prestigious honor in the

jewelry world akin to an Oscar in the movie

industry.

Another must-stop is The Santa Barbara

Company

(santabarbaracompany.com

), a

treasure trove of fine gifts and artisan goods

with an emphasis on all things local. Housed in

a charming 100-year-old bungalow, The Santa

Barbara Company showcases local olive oil,

fragrant organic wine-inspired soaps, artisanal

chocolates, beautiful gift-worthy art and

books and more. The company hand delivers

specialty gift baskets locally and ships to other

destinations.

For a festive dose of holiday spirit, step

into Lewis & Clark in historic La Arcada Plaza.

Filled to the brim with unique and whimsical

merchandise, the shop offers well-chosen

holiday items, jewelry, table linens, picture

frames, vintage silver and more. And ‘tis the

season—bring the family to the La Arcada

Plaza annual Christmas Walk on Wednesday,

November 29th from 5 to 8 pm. You’ll find

holiday cheer for all, with photos with Santa,

strolling carolers, local musicians and seasonal

treats.
