Specialty: Anything and everything vintage
Price Range: ($) Budget
Located in downtown Glen Ellyn, a western suburb of Chicago, Gather & Collect is the kind of store that carries a little bit of everything. The store carries almost everything you might find in any household: furniture, artwork, lamps, collectibles, suitcases, quilts and afghans, games, books, etc. In other words if it's vintage, you might find it here.
Jessica and Julie became friends through their children and quickly discovered they share a passion for gathering and collecting — hence the name of their shop. Together they have turned their passion for hunting flea markets, estate sales and thrift stores for quality vintage merchandise into a well curated store. Currently the shop is open Thursday through Saturday only to free up time for the ladies to keep hunting for goods.
In addition to a passion for vintage furniture and accessories, Jessica and Julie share a love of vintage art. You can expect to find most of the walls of the store covered in original vintage artwork, all at affordable prices.
