Easter Shopping Guide

Daisy McClellanComment

For us Easter is the official start of Spring. Break out the color clothes and get festive with your hostess gifts. We've put together a little shopping guide for the weekend. Hop on in for more ideas!

Instead of one of those plastic baskets, opt for a locally made pouch to fill that she can re-use as a make-up bag. And how perfect is this bunny one?

Add our DIY Nail Polish Kit to your Easter gift. What could be more fun than a lazy afternoon of creating your own custom nail polish colors with your kiddos!

For brunch we're dreaming of wearing this dress with our favorite wedges. 

Throw on our easy to wear Navy Cross Hatch Kimono so you can play games and search for eggs in comfort with the little ones. 

Add our favorite gloss and you are set for an effortless weekend!

Don't forget a hostess gift! We love this grown up gift "basket" full of everything for the foodie in your life (including Easter chocolate)!

Image Transfer to Wood Workshop: Holiday Edition

Daisy McClellanComment

Join us for our special Holiday Image Transfer to Wood Workshop on Thursday December 8th, 2016 at 7p. 

Our instructor, Chelsea has made a business of transferring her photos on to wood with her company Cuppa Fog for the past 4 1/2 years. We carry her beautiful San Francisco themed pieces in the shop. For this workshop she will  share her secret tips and tricks!

In this class you will use your own photos to make 6 mini wood transfers (2.5 x 3 inches) that are perfect to give as gifts for the holidays or turn into ornaments for your tree.  You can use the same image multiple times (perfect for gift giving to Mom, Grandma, friends, etc) or up to 6 different ones to keep all for yourself...the choice is yours!*

Chelsea each teach you: Wood preparation, image transfer application, removal of paper, distressed-finish techniques, sealant method, and how to apply hardware on the back of your new art. You will complete 3 pieces in class and have 3 to finish at home.

This two hour class also includes wine and snacks and a discount on merchandise in the store that night. No experience needed- all levels welcome!

Purchase your space now!

Image Transfer to Wood Workshop: Holiday Edition - Thursday December 8th, 2016 - 7p-9p: $50

*We recommend good contrast and high resolution digital files. We advise you to stay away from portraits (people or animal), as they are tougher to make sure the distressing doesn’t happen over important parts like faces. Please email pictures to hello@gathersf.com by Sunday December 4th.
