THANK YOU SANTA BARBARA!
Last year’s store was a great success thanks to our loyal supporters, customers and art lovers. Be sure to check back for information on the 2016 Yes Store which will open in November somewhere
in downtown Santa Barbara!
The Yes Store was founded as a seasonal artists’ cooperative gift gallery in 1968. Since that time it as become a local tradition in downtown Santa Barbara and features several of Santa Barbara’s finest artists and craftspeople. The store opens it’s doors each year in November and closes on Christmas Eve. For 2015, the store is located at 807 State Street. Opening night is November 5, 2015 from 5:00 to 7:00. Photos coming soon!
Store artists, or “members”, are selected by a jury each year in early October. Selected artists are assigned a space in the store, set up a booth and in addition to keeping their own art-work stocked in the store, they perform other duties necessary to keep the store running.
The Yes Store features hand-crafted work in many different mediums including: ceramics, clothing, jewelry, glass, graphics, leather, metal-sculpture, mixed media, photography, textiles, weaving and wood.
By shopping at the Yes Store you are not only helping local artists and our community, but you are also purchasing unique hand-crafted items of exceptional quality that can only be found here. Thanks for stopping by–and don’t forget to tell your friends about–THE YES STORE!
