Meet Your Merchant: Gathered Handmade

It’s hard not to smile when you walk into the colorful world of Gathered Handmade in Ferndale, where saturated, spirit-lifting hues, from bubblegum pink and turquoise blue to mint green and marigold yellow, grace nearly every nook and cranny. The vibrant vintage market, which opened early last year, is the perfect fit for a Main Street lined with Painted Ladies - and for owner and local artist Andra Stringer, whose personal style gravitates toward the whimsical, eclectic and bright.
