GATHER is super stoked to announce that our temporary new space is all set up and packed to the brim with all kinds of hand crafted goodies and good vibes! The new space is just a three minute walk from our old spot - we couldn't move too far from our favourite coffee shop (the ever inspiring and always inviting Dust Temple). New locally made clay pieces and plant babies, beautiful dried flower bouquets and brilliant artworks fill the space, waiting to be that perfect gift or unique addition to your home.
We are enjoying sharing the space with Pete Mengler, expert chocolate craftsman and owner of the Cravve Chocolate Gallery just next door. Cravve's range includes vegan, dairy-free, keto, paleo and sugar free treats made with ethically sourced cacao from small lot owners around the world! Seasonal fruit from the Mengler's own farm also goes into making the delicious edible art and snacks.
Upstairs, local indigenous Australian artist Michael Phillips uses his extraordinary talents to paint stories inspired by his life, culture, family and the things he holds sacred. His paintings represent concepts, experiences and feelings small and big that many people can relate to.
Right next door, the team of professionals at the Right Hand Tattoo Co. create artwork of their own. The tattoo studio has a warm, welcoming atmosphere and each member of the team has a unique style and skill set. Just across the way you can find delicious fresh food and coffee at Sumptuous Fine Foods, full of a diverse range of locally grown meals and snacks as well as Artilis Studios a creative workshop space for artists young and old.
At our new space, we are once again surrounded by talented people who take pride in their work and inspire us every day. We continue to replenish our store with handpicked pieces from local artists and combined with the sunshine, plants and breeze the space has a relaxed and happy atmosphere. We encourage you to stop in and have a look at the new shop, pick up a coffee and a snack from our neighbours and let us know what you think. We've missed your smiling faces.
GATHER re-planted to shop 8/32 Currumbin Creek Road, Currumbin, QLD 4223.
