If you love romantic décor and vintage style, stroll into Gatherings in Jeffersonville, IN for unique gift items and home accessories. This delightful store is filled to the brim with all things beautiful. Soft neutrals with accents of black and dark brown as well as floral patterns abound.
My favorite display is a vintage metal serving cart adorned with a coiled green garden house and framed bird prints tucked within. Other delightful items include unique picture frames, candles, gifts for the new baby and a line of scrapbook items by Anna Griffin. Among the vintage items, one will find rhinestone jewelry from the 1920s and 1930s, stemware, dishes, silverware and ice buckets.

Do you hold any special events? Gatherings will be conducting several upcoming seminars. One will be on tablescapes for the holidays during the Christmas season, another on how to host a tea party and a third seminar on paper crafting; specifically how to create vintage crafts from new scrapbooking supplies. A Holiday Open House will be held on November 6th from 6-9pm. An Open House is also held in the spring. Another event called Art on Spring is held three to four times a year. Several downtown businesses participate and a local artist is featured at each participating location. It is always an evening event and refreshments are served.
Is shopping independent stores and businesses important to you? Shannon says that being an entrepreneur gives her the desire to support other small, independent businesses. Furthermore, shopping independent establishments allows her the opportunity to find unique items that aren’t run of the mill.
Not only does Gatherings offer items to decorate your home, but they will also provide design services, customized party décor and fresh floral arrangements. It’s a one stop shop to meet all of your home interior and gift giving needs.
