Located in the historic Redman Building at 116 N. Walnut on the east side of the square in Bloomington, Gather is owned by shopkeep Talia Halliday and run by an awesome staff of artistic women. We showcase emerging and independent handmade goods. We sell the independent work of more than 250 artists, crafters, and makers from the Midwest and beyond. The work represented in the store ranges from handmade and handcrafted jewelry to bath and body, kids’ toys and clothing to woodworking, illustration, knitted and crocheted work and much much more. Also offered in the space are workshops and classes to help create and foster our artistic community as well as a gallery space to exhibit emerging as well as well known artists in the area. Each month we host public craft nights to bring our community together around the practice of making.
Gather is about creating a community around art and the process of art — supporting the makers that create, and illustrating that creation.
