Looking for books on Davis, UC Davis, Woodland, Winters and other towns in Yolo County? How about note paper with the museum’s logo or stationery with the Davis bicycle logo?

Not into reading or writing? How about a huggable teddy bear with a cozy hand-knit sweater? Need a stretchy market bag for Farmers Market produce?

All of these items are available for purchase at the Hattie Weber Museum, 445 C St., in the northeast corner of Central Park.
In recent weeks, the museum has added handmade boa/ruffle scarves (with and without glitter) in many colors and valentine note cards made from reproductions of the museum’s antique valentine collection to the gift offerings.
All items are reasonably priced and proceeds benefit the Museum Annex Fund, which will be used to restore and renovate the WPA restroom building for use as a museum annex.
The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesdays and Saturdays. Featured exhibits this month include an account of the famous “Purple Circle” of internationally recognized purebred livestock breeders from UCD and the surrounding area and “Retail History in the Bag” featuring merchandise bags from former Davis retailers such as State Market, The Naturalist, The Game Preserve and others.

Children are welcome to come and play with antique toy reproductions while parents view exhibits. Admission is free, but donations are accepted with gratitude.
