Antique, Decorative Arts Show Proceeds Fight Child Abuse

Antique and vintage dealers return to Earl Warren Showgrounds for the Antique, Decorative Arts & Vintage Show and Sale Oct. 13-15 to benefit CALM, the Child Abuse Mediation Listening program.

Be it garden artifacts, jewelry and accessories, period furniture, modernism, silver, glassware, basketry, rugs and tapestries, china and porcelain, Bakelite wares, vintage clothing or artwork, the show offers something for everyone.

The show benefits CALM, a nonprofit agency that focuses solely on preventing, assessing and treating child abuse in Santa Barbara County.

In the North and South County, CALM offers safe, nonjudgmental, caring and therapy to strengthen children and their families who may be suffering the effects of abuse. More than 1000 individuals receive services from CALM each year.

An out-reach program also is available in schools throughout the county. Trained therapists talk with students, offering support and information. A speaker’s bureau reaches out into the communities giving education and further support.

More than 10,000 children, parents, teachers and community members participate in CALM’s prevention programs.

Show hours are 11 a.m.-6 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Sunday hours are 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Admission at the door is $6/$5 with an ad online or in publications. Seniors are $5. Free parking is provided by CALM.

Earl Warren Showgrounds are at 3400 Calle Real, Santa Barbara. For more, visit

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
