This month's theme is The Queen of Hearts. The Queen of Hearts to us is not just about Valentines--it's about all the things we love. We love found treasures, their histories and stories. We love finding treasures that reconnect us to different people and places in our lives. We love finding out who owned treasures, what they were used for, and how they can be used today. Are we going to repurpose a treasure or use it the way it was initially intended? How many places in the world has a treasure been before it ended up in our store? What's your Queen of Hearts find?
This month when I asked Tray what his favorite things are, he said some of his finds from Southern California and Nevada are really fantastic. He's fallen in love with an antique Chinese fishing boat, about 60 years old. Also on his list are some huge, 4 foot tall, tapered, galvanized olive buckets, an awesome green leather club chair, and a beautiful array of dough bowls. I kinda figured the boat was going to be at the top of his list because when he got home from the buying trip, it was the first thing he showed me. He raced in the back door and said, "you gotta see what's in the van. You're not gonna believe it." Well, that's a stretch for me because I've learned anything is possible when Tray is on the hunt. He also said, "it's a great month for anyone looking for that perfect farm table because we have a really nice selection."
We also have great gift ideas for the Valentines on your list, and if you can't decide, a Gather gift certificate covers all the bases. For everyone who has enjoyed the paper line, the biggest order Tray's ever placed will be stocked and ready for you, including the gift wrap, cards, placemats, and ribbons. Over the holidays, Tray and Grant had the opportunity to visit the Heritage Candle factory just outside of Atlanta. Tray and Grant caught the owners on a day when they were the only ones there. They got a private tour. Not only was it fun and informative, they got to package and label all of the candles purchased to bring back to Tucson, two case of which made their way back to Gather under my feet. Y'all all know how Tray will use any space he can in the van, and being that I'm 5' tall, he, of course, reasoned that the boost would be more comfortable for me. Along with the scents that have become our customers' favorites, we're introducing 5 new fragrances. At $13, that's a great gift for anyone for any occaision.
The Warehouse at Gather is becoming a fan favorite because everyone can shop on Thursdays starting about an hour before the market opens. Now you can shop and be in line for the drawing for gift certificates. Double your fun.
Check out Simone's article "Living in Luxury--Small Things & Simple Pleasures" in the Jan/Feb issue of the Antique Register. So fun!
You know Tray loves the drawing on Thursday mornings--he gets so excited to see who wins. I'm sure if there's a line on Friday morning, he'll be giving gift certificates away! If there's a line on Saturday, who knows? He may go crazy then too!
Thanks to each of you for making the market a success! We appreciate your business and look forward to seeing you!

Gather A Vintage Market
"What started out as a passionate hobby has turned into our dream business!"
In 2012, we decided it was time for us to launch our dream . . .
a 4-day Vintage Market. We were fortunate to find a warehouse in downtown Tucson, a former lumberyard known as the Old Arizona Sash and Door Warehouse. The minute we walked in, we knew we found the perfect space. We love the old crusty, galvanized tin walls, exposed rafters, and wooden floor. Our dream was to create a magical environment in which we could interact with customers, share our ideas, vision, and creativity, and have fun with everyone who comes through our doors.
In January 2013, that dream came true when we opened for our first market. We now have 16 vendors, and we blend all of our furniture and finds together to create a curated collection in styled vignettes. Our vendors shop across the country and even in Europe to bring you amazing treasures. Each month when you come to our market, the entire floor plan is redesigned and restyled around a theme, creating a fresh and interesting experience each month. Our goal is that every customer who comes through the door has fun and is inspired while enjoying the uniquely styled treasures, and we want to provide customers with creative inspiration for incorporating vintage items into their homes and gardens.
We'd love to see you at one of our upcoming markets. We enjoy and are grateful for our customers, and we love hearing about how they use the treasures they've found at Gather in their homes and gardens.
