Gather's next market is June 8, 9, 10, 11
The theme for our June market is "The Perfect Mix," which is all about having the right balance of the things that you love. There's really no such thing as "does that match"--it's more about balance. Tray describes his "Perfect Mix" as a combined balance of some pieces rustic and some items refined all coming together to create cohesion. What is your perfect mix--your perfect balance?
This has been such an exciting month. The Gather guys, Tray and Jason, embarked on an exciting journey--the 501 mile yard sale from Mississippi to Virginia. They started in Mississippi and travelled just shy of Knoxville, Tennessee, and then doubled back. They had so much fun--from the southern hospitality and crazy good food too, and of course, all the great stuff.
Some of our favorite finds from their trip are a 14-foot long church pew out of an old church in Mississippi, pairs of old, store-front screen doors, and fire place mantles. We fell in love with the architecture of the old mantles and surrounds with their crusty, chippy patina. There's nothing more southern and welcoming than porch swings and gliders, and several of each made it to Tucson. We paired one of these gliders with a fine, upholstered chair to create the perfect mix. They also brought back some old farm tables, and sometimes when I'm appreciating their beauty, I wonder about all the conversations that must have been held as friends and family gathered around them.
Another super-cool thing that Tray found on this trip across the south is an
old ice-cream freezer. He's been wanting to sell ice cream for the last couple of
summers, and it wasn't until this trip that he found the perfect vintage freezer
to fit into Gather. He's got traditional chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry ice
cream cups, old fashioned fudgesicle and chunky strawberry bars, and lemon chill.
This'll be a bit of fun for our ice cream lovers.
This month, Julie Shaw, Gather's awesome photographer, swung by to check out one of the set-up days. Enjoy this short video of the Gather team at work, creating the Perfect Mix for you this month.

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.
