A new locally owned and operated store, Gatherings Unltd., LLC, has opened inside long-time business Art Reflections in Zimmerman. Owner Valarie Holm has combined a collection of local artists’ work with her own artistic style to offer local residents what she describes as “a curious mix of handmade treasures and things discovered.”
Handmade art, jewelry, soaps, accessories, and home and garden décor are only some of what Gatherings Unltd. has to offer. Upcoming classes to be offered in collaboration with Art Reflections are mixed media arts along with jewelry making, papier-maché and others.
Gatherings Unltd. is a participant in Zimmerman’s bi-monthly Ladies on the Loose shopping event and has a full schedule of activities, including photos with Santa today (Dec. 1) inside the store (in conjunction with Art Reflections and Zimmerman’s Celebrate the Season event), and a Christmas by Candlelight shopping event from 4–9 p.m. Friday, Dec. 7.
Store hours are 10 a.m.–6 p.m. Monday–Thursday, 10 a.m.–4 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m.–2 p.m. Saturday. Extended holiday hours through Dec. 23 include 10 a.m.–4 p.m. Saturday and noon–4 p.m. Sunday.
