We've been getting our hands dirty lately to bring a new venture to fruition for the Grass Valley community and surrounding areas. Located in the bustling historic downtown area, our heavily-trafficked space is central and accommodating to the public, and perfectly situated for what's in store. While our website and shop is still under construction (please bear with us!) and won't be officially launched until mid-April 2017, we wanted to give everyone a little sneak peek into what's coming together... and we hope you join in on our excitement; we encourage your ideas and input! Please read on to learn more about what you can expect, and how YOU can directly be a part of the GATHER & MILL community.
So what is GATHER & MILL all about anyway? Well first, you can read about our story in the about section of our website, to learn a little more about what inspired GATHER & MILL and why the owners felt that opening this space was the natural next step for both of their life's journeys.
When we officially open our doors in the spring, GATHER & MILL will proudly host fun and reasonably priced workshops & gatherings for the community. We will also have a beautifully unique, well-curated shop with sustainability and style in mind. Some things you can look forward to seeing in the shop are home goods, ethically-made clothing & accessories, jewelry, textiles, art of many mediums and gift items! We look forward to working with creatives and vendors who take pride in the quality of their goods and artistic talents.
...and that's where YOU come in!! We are currently taking applications for workshop instructors, and consignment vendors. Our consignment vendors will be hand selected by the owners to reflect our aesthetic and vision. If you're interested in selling consignment in our shop, please fill out the form on our contact page.
If you are interested in teaching a workshop, we would also love to hear from you as well! Here are just *some* ideas of what we'd love to see come to life in our awesome space (but we're completely open to suggestions and ideas... opportunities are endless!)
