A very popular coffee and ice cream stop and beloved yarn shop, Adelaides is a local favorite. Cheri Diehl of the Peninsula Fiberistas will be on hand to represent the spinners and weavers during the first part of the day. Spinning wheels have a special kind of magic, and a demo is planned for 10 a.m. to noon.

One of the largest galleries on the peninsula, representing a multitude of diverse artists and a working studio, too! Sue Raymond is the owner and clay artist behind it all. The open studio is always busy … classes for adults and children, potters working on projects and members of the Peninsula Clay Artists going in and out. The clay group will be “in” for the walk. They have been working on tree ornaments for the many trees on display in the gallery.

A favorite tree from last year, the “Tree of Trees,” is making a return appearance. The gallery hosts a wide range of work from jewelry to found art objects. OPAAW member Bette Lu Krause has many of her paintings, prints and cards there, too. A hot chocolate and cookies tent is hosted by the gallery and Rosa’s Treasure Chest.

Rosa’s Treasure Chest

1410 Bay Ave.

“Things you want, nothing you need” is how Rosa Accuardi laughingly describes her shop. Literally filled from top to bottom, you never know what might pop up. First-edition books, retro appliances, beachy kitsch or fine china — it’s all in this tiny bit of a shop. A storewide clearance sale is in process, continuing during the walk.

Open most weekends. Look for the bright yellow “OPEN” sign.

Wiegardt Studio Gallery

2607 Bay Ave.

Since 1985, the large and picturesque Victorian house at the corner of Bay Avenue and Z Street has been home to artist Eric Wiegardt’s gallery and studio. Wiegardt’s newest book, “Painting Without a Net,” will be offered at 10 percent off during December and several originals and giclee prints have special, monthly prices, too, just in time for gift giving.

Also on view, several paintings of Venice (from this year’s Italy painting workshop) and new work from the Tidepoint Series featuring the incorporation of gold pigment into the lush tones Wiegardt is known for. Come meet the award-winning artist, check out upcoming class options and immerse yourself in a world of color and texture.
