Summer Pop Up Recap

Daisy McClellanComment

We had so much fun at this afternoon's Summer Pop Up with Theia Grazi and Rust + Flourish! Loved helping find customers the perfect weekend outfit and pick out flowers and succulents. If you missed out we have lots of Theia Grazi's Spring collection in the shop and have a few small and large floral arrangements from R+F still up for grabs! We are also now carrying R+F's beautiful sage sticks and succulents. Come and get it!

Summer Pop Up with Theia Grazi and Rust & Flourish - July 8th

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.
