You may have missed June's Parachute Market, that vintage festival dedicated to postmodern art and the heady psychedelia of summer. Never fear: Curator-founder Coryander Friend is gearing up for a second edition, focusing on decorations with an "elemental" design. The new collection will explore the nature of alchemy and creation through the works of 30 California artists. This includes hand-thrown pottery from Victoria Morris, the quirky, found-object flair of Bari Ziperstein and shell creations from Jim Olarte, aka the "Modern Beachcomber." You can browse through vintage furniture, wearable art, costume jewelry and even seasonal food curated by Kinfolk magazine. Tickets are $8 at the door, but a portion of the proceeds goes to Inner-City Arts to help children in need. 405 Mateo St., dwntwn.; Sat., Sept. 21, 12-7 p.m.; Sun.; Sept. 22, 12-6 p.m.; $6 in advance, $8 at the door. parachutemarket.com.
