Get your Holiday Season in gear at the Carpinteria Valley Historical Society and History Museum’s Marketplace scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 28, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the museum grounds, 956 Maple Ave.

Create an eleventh-hour Halloween costume, find the perfect turkey platter, and begin gift shopping from the variety of booths hosting vintage clothing, food items, antiques, handicrafts, collectibles, furniture, musical instruments, toys, and plants among many other treasures.

Vendor Martha Fragosa sells her handmade cotton canvas aprons with pockets, tote bags, and hand-quilted baby blankets. “For all you early bird holiday shoppers, I will have Christmas stockings at the October market,” reported Fragosa. “I sew everything on my mom’s old 1950s black cast iron Singer machine.” See some of her creations at and on Instagram marfyscrazycreations.

Granny’s Attic, the booth operated by the museum, is a jumble of old cameras, table linens, kitchenware, and much much more with prices starting at 25 cents.

As always, the Marketplace is free and family friendly. Hot dogs, cold beverages, and snacks will be available for purchase. Musical entertainment includes Mavis Hansen and the Ukulele Jammers.
