Since moving to Indiana and getting involved in the arts/artisan markets here, I've noticed a resurgence, and very well supported, movement back to handmade. Gather Shoppe is one of the latest to join this much welcomed group.Home Spun: Modern Handmade in Indianapolis, Gather supports artisans through the sale of goods, workshops, and featured shows, for the emerging and established maker.
With humble beginnings, Gather started with Pop-Up shows titled Gatherings, and keeping with the self-sufficiency movement, Gather opened with a Go Fund Me campaign.
After a successful, and crowded, opening last month, Gather will be hosting it's first feature show titled Home.
