June Events!

Here’s our Summer Event Schedule so far:

Saturday 6/9, 7pm Death by Chocolate & Analog Apostles–Two new Lexington Bands will converge on the Gathering Place, with The Analogue Apostles, bringing a melodic and dark pop rock sound that combines somber symphonies with pounding anthems, and Death by Chocolate’s honky tonk funk. Also, the Truffle Diva is going to stop by and bring her latest creation, the Death by Chocolate Truffle.  We are beyond excited.    [$5 cover]

Saturday 6/15, 7pm  Approaching the Unreal–a violin & guitar act will join us from Berea, KY    [$5 cover]

Saturday 6/27, 7pm  Ska Nite!–Quite possibly the largest ska event to hit Lexington (ever). Lexington band The Rough Customers will be joined by All Over the Place (Berea, OH) and Squirt Gun Warriors (Baton Rouge, LA) for a night of ska-liciousness. We are still looking for a local young punk, ska, rock band to open for them. If you’re interested shoot us an email: natalie@lexingtonrescue.org [$5 cover]

Saturday 7/7, noon-6pm  Bazaar One Year Celebration! It’s been one year since our grand opening, and we’re planning to celebrate with sidewalk chalk murals, a Thrift Store fashion show, a sidewalk sale, and of course, live music throughout the day. Join us to celebrate creativity in Lexington, see what’s been done this year, and find out how you can get involved at the Bazaar & Gathering Place. [free!]


Seasonal Shmeasonal.

If you haven’t been to visit the Bazaar in awhile, you need to come by & check it out.  We have some ridiculously great new vintage–I’ll post some pictures later this week.  FoxHouse and Finding  Freedom through Friendship brought new scarves the other day as well.  They may not be perfectly seasonal with summer just around the corner, but they’re so gorgeous, we don’t even care!


Thanks to donations from Joan, an incredibly generous volunteer, the Bazaar is looking better than ever.  She went out & bought some much needed display items for our merchandise, along with some new jewelry that Natalie and I found irresistable.

(Thank God for Joan.)

Journal Workshop Take 2

Our first Journal Workshop making Recycled Journals was completely great.  After Jamie got us started with ideas and supplies, everyone went straight to work.  No one could believe two hours had passed when 5:00 came.  I’m looking forward to the second part of our series this Sunday, 3-5pm.  We’ll learn to bind our own journals using the historic long stitch!

Anything Goes 4/22

No Rules Journal-Making!

Journal Making Workshop

Learn new tools to tell your story by participating in journal-making workshops at the Gathering Place.  Workshops will be led by Jamie Karolich of the Living Arts and Science Center. Supplies will be provided, and it’s free to participate, though donations are appreciated.

Sunday, April 22 (3-5pm) Earth day Recycled Journals.

We’ll turn used books into personal art journals which can be kept and enjoyed for years to come. We will use old books to create a new journal using several techniques from collage, decoupage, painting, drawing, sewing and much more as we deconstruct the old books and reconstruct a new personal journal.

Sunday, April 29 (3-5pm) Historic Long Stitch Journals.

Bring your favorite fabric or use some of ours as we create and sew a Historic Longstitch Journal. We will provide paper, needles, fabric and thread. You will be taught the historic long stitch which you will use to turn your fabric and paper into a soft bound journal full of blank pages waiting to be filled with your personal story.
