Take Art and Nature Home with You!
Shop at the Wildling!
Our unique gift shop is the perfect place to purchase handcrafted gifts, art books, guides to the natural history of the Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Barbara region, trail maps, home decor, kids’ activities and art project kits, plush animals, jewelry made from natural and recycled materials, and so much more! The Wildling Gift Shop is truly a destination in its own right!
The Wildling Shop offers a diverse mix of merchandise that celebrates nature in various ways. Many of the items are made by local artists. Jewelers Monika Miehle and Heather Federlein hail from Buellton, Kaaren Jordan and Linda Pinney live in Solvang, and Joan Craton’s amazing puddingstone necklaces are made in Santa Barbara. Santa Barbara potter Ed Spaw and Buellton artist Cathy McGavin has several of her hand-carved gourd bowls.
The Wildling Gift Shop is now also featuring wall hung art by local artists in the store! Working with artists throughout the tri-county area, the Museum shop will rotate their work every two months.
