If we weren't already excited enough for Small Business Saturday, we now have more reason to be. If this is your first rodeo, Small Business Saturday has happened every year since it was conceived in 2010, as a counterpart to Black Friday and Cyber Monday. We were so grateful for everyone's support over the years, and can’t wait to celebrate with you this year. Join us on Saturday November 24th starting at 11a. We will be serving mimosas and handing out FREE tote bags to the first shoppers who make a purchase.

From 11a-5p gather maker, Courtney from Bored Inc will be popping up with a special collection of her enamel pins, patches, cards, prints, and totes. Her RBG enamel pins could quite possibly be our most popular selling item ever! Grab the best stocking stuffers and meet the artist.

Additionally, Kristina of Lacson Ravello will be in the shop from 11a-5p with her locally made clothing. Her dresses and tops are perfect for your holiday parties or gifting to your bestie. Meet the designer and try on her gorgeous designs.

Also, Alejandra León of The Lioness Oracle will be on hand doing Tarot Card readings from 11a-1p. Readings are 20 minutes and cost $40. Show up early to make sure you get on the list. This is an experience not to be missed!

O and did we mention we will be having a raffle to win a gift bag full of goodies from the shop? And if you spend over $100 you get 10% off your purchase! Also, 25% off all items in our Mien pop up!

Join us for Passport 2018 on October 21st

Join us on Sunday October 21st from noon-4p as we participate in Passport - SFAC Galleries’ 10th annual DIY art collecting experience. SFAC Galleries’ signature event puts the art collecting experience in the hands of the general public! Local artists will be stationed in venues throughout Hayes Valley/Civic Center (including gather!) and Passport attendees can “create” their own limited-edition artist’s book by collecting original, artist-designed stamps in a customized “passport” notebook. Walking throughout Hayes Valley/Civic Center, hundreds of do-it-yourself art collectors will follow a designated route to collect stamps from emerging and established Bay Area artists while discovering small businesses in the neighborhood.

We will be hosting Grace Rosario Perkins, an Albuquerque and Bay Area-based artist who has spent most of her life living between city centers, as well the Navajo Nation, and the Gila River Indian Community. Her work examines cultural dissonance, disassembling and rebuilding personal history through explorations with color, abstraction, and language. Learn more about the event, the participating artists and host venues, how to purchase your passport and more here.

We will be serving mimosas to celebrate and give passport participants 15% off their purchases in the shop from 12-4 that day!

Daisy McClellanComment

Join us at gather on Saturday July 8th from noon-4p as we host local clothing designer Theia Grazi and local florist Rust & Flourish for a special summer pop up!

Since 2011, friends Amy and Anya have been creating their clothing line Theia Grazi here in the bay area for every day women who want to look sophisticated without giving up comfort. They will be bringing everything from their Spring collection that we currently don't carry in the shop as well as amazing deals from past seasons. The designers will be on hand to style you and answer any questions you have about their process.

Rust & Flourish is an event and design studio based in Oakland who advocates of the slow-flower movement, striving to use locally sourced, seasonal, and foraged materials. Owner Ricci's love of flowers started at a very early age, when she would collage with her mother's garden and Martha Stewart magazines. She will be popping up for the day with various mini arrangements as well as fresh blooms to decorate your apartment with.

We will have mimosas on hand while you have fun trying on dresses and picking our flowers. What could be better? It's will be the perfect Summer day.
