It's hard to believe it's been 2 full years since we opened our yellow door at gather! In some ways in seems like yesterday we were scouting out potential spaces for our little dream but in other ways it feels like we've been doing this for ages. We have absolutely loved the little community of artists and customers that has formed and want to thank you for all your support. Come help us celebrate the two wonderful years on Thursday May 26th from 6-8p. It will be a great way to kick off the long weekend. We will be offering a FREE mini workshop on how to make your own bath salt soak. Your leave with a jar that you mix together (while supplies last). We will also be toasting with champagne and macaroons. O and you can take 20% off ANY non sale item in the store that night! See you there!
