More then 500 shoppers attended the fourth annual Holiday Marketplace at the Steamboat Era Museum November 24 and 25.

Shopping at the Holiday Marketplace will continue from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays, December 2, 9 and 16.

Shoppers will have the opportunity to purchase handmade jewelry, baskets, bird carvings, soaps, birdhouses, garden art and other gift items from more then 20 artisans, said executive director Barbara Brecher.

A few of the new Chesapeake Bay scarves are still available as well as signed copies of Pat Roses’s book, Tides That Bind-Weems, VA. The gift shop is full of holiday decorations, ornaments and hostess gifts, said Brecher.

A portion of the proceeds will support the museum, 156 King Carter Drive, Irvington.
