Merry, Merry: Gathered
Gathered is the brainchild of Leslie and Bruce Schlernitzauer, owners of Porcupine Provisions Catering. They call it their “pandemic pivot” – their solution to bringing customers beautiful (check out the photos and you’ll know what we mean!) and locally curated food and gift boxes. Talk about an amazing creation being wrought out of necessity. Gathered offers thoughtfully curated, food focused gift boxes and comfort meals while supporting small local businesses and Charlotte non-profits along the way. As Smarties, we could not love that concept more! Each gift box includes as many local lovelies as they can find from local farmers and producers and some of their favorite added touches like house made relishes and a cheese board.
Gathered is like a gifting concierge, collaborating on custom gift that fits the needs and preferences of its customers this holiday season. You can also find some of their products in retail fridges located in Woo Skincare and Cosmetics and Paper Skyscraper.
Gathered is offering one lucky Smarty its beautiful Charlotte Gift Box. They’ve packed everything they can carry from their favorite Charlotte vendors in one awesome gift! This is as local as it gets! It includes: City Farm Foods cranberry orange jam, Cloister honey, Pour Olive Manzanillo olive oil, Cannizzaro marinara sauce, House Made roasted nut mix, House Made cornbread mix, and your choice of Noble Oat granola. Total value $85.
