In the moment that I arrived, I fell in love with the beautiful garden. This shop has an impressive variety of antiques as well as beautiful and intricate quilting. It's fun to browse through all of them. Very nice owner and I will definitely come back to visit again. Good location. Not open Tuesdays. Cash only:) Remember to get ice cream at the corner across the street.

walking up to and around the building is beautiful! the owners hard work and creativity show magnificently through out their gardens! I love the hand made quilts and folk lore pieces. it's not an antique mall, it is a husband and wife who've actually worked together & quilt together....they actually have their sewing machine set up by the check out........very quaint!

When I visit family in Port Huron I always enjoy a drive up to Lexington, stopping at various antique stores and estate sales along the way. There is usually something new to see and do. This time, Gatherings was a new place to visit. It had a nice, well-tended garden and was rather inviting. Since I was travelling with my pet, I decided to stroll through the garden while my Dad went into the shop. After taking a couple of steps, the owner appeared on the porch yelling at me to leave as she is highly allergic to dogs. She said that there were signs posted to inform the public of this. She pointed to one, which was not facing the entrance. It was about waist level and small to the left of the entrance area - not where most would be looking as you head toward the shop. As I turned to leave, she continued to yell at me and repeat that she was allergic to dogs. There is most certainly a more appropriate and polite way of informing the public of a serious medical issue. My Dad reluctantly entered the shop and found her annoyed and blathering about the severity of her condition. She was also adamant that no photos were to be taken anywhere on the premises. Although I did not go in, my Dad said that there was no visible, unique, art that could be "stolen" and copied. I must say that I was unpleasantly surprised and saddened by such behavior in such a pleasant little town. Of course we did not let this cloud our day. We went directly across the street to enjoy some food and brew in a place that was welcoming and friendly - even to dogs!

We are local, and took a visiting friend there--my first time there. The owner was loudly yelling out her rules as you entered---"No photos" along with other rules. I understand she has a lot of unique items with sayings on them that she does not want people to copy, but it was a rude way to get her message out. Have not been back.

Dispite the other reviews, my family and I found the owner quite rude. Upon entering she immediately told us we could under no circumstances have our cell phones visible. Apparently this was so we didn't photograph the "art" or steal ideas? I say art loosely because I didn't see one original piece (just knock-offs of your everyday craft show items). Very few antiques, if any. As an artist, consumer, and avid antique collector, this was very off putting and ruined what little ambiance there was. We will not return.
