1} Scrabble Shadowbox Art ... everyone just fell in LOVE with this project. celebrate a special relationship, family, weddings, baby and more!! Choose words that describe your theme, add a photo or a collage of photos, a few embellishments and Voila! a fabulous, personalized, one-of-a-kind gift!!




(missed art & play day?? this project can be ordered and custom-made. Custom-made complete= $75.00. DIY Custom Frame= $40.00)




2} BEWARE! Banners ... a spooky addition to your Halloween tricks & treats. Traditional cream & black coordinate with any decor. Makes a great hostess gift too!
(kits are still available for this project. $30.00+ shipping & handling)

Nevermore Kit, Page by Page

a page by page look at our "Nevermore" accordion book.

(we've encountered a major technical difficulty with our video tutorial...so until we get the kinks worked out we wanted to provide a page by page view of our project. all the pieces in the kits are cut to size (for the most part). If you go thru and match up the paper to the pages as shown here, assembly should be simple to follow. If you have any questions at all please don't hesitate to comment, email, FB message or text. Thanks for your understanding!!)

a fond farewell...



The 2011 season for A Vintage Gathering has come to a close. We had a fabulous-Fallish-final show. Friday was beautiful! Saturday...not so much(but very much like a great NW Autumn day!!)
Regardless, it was a wonderful weekend and we will certainly miss the gatherings over the coming months.

We want to thank everyone who has come out to the shows this year. It's amazing how many friends we've made and the homes & gardens we've helped beautify!!
We can't wait to see you all in 2012!!



























yes!! you can find almost ANYTHING at the Vintage Gathering...from the kitchen sink to Granny's organ!! we ARE a dedicated bunch!

see y'all next year!!
