The Hope Gallery opened in June of 2018. We are located in downtown Bargersville, IN. We are a unique boutique for happy, funky, cool people and their pets. We sell and consign art and other unique items. Our tagline is wonderfully made/ perfectly unique which describes both our products and our team members. Our team members learn all aspects of running a business. As of March 2019 we have 30+ team members that work at The Hope Gallery. Our young adults are paired with volunteers who manage the store in 3 hour shifts.
The Hope Gallery is named after Jennifer and Andrew Parker's thirteen-year-old daughter, Hope. Hope had a severe congenital heart defect - Hypoplastic left ventricle which is essentially half of a heart. She endured 17 surgeries including four open heart. She was unable to speak or use sign language due to a stroke that occurred during a procedure, but was full of HOPE. She was crazy about living life and absolutely loved all people. Even when living was hard, painful, difficult, and incredibly frustrating for her, she had joy in the midst. The Hope Gallery has Hope’s prayer box where people can drop in prayer requests for our team members. Hope used to pray on behalf of these requests. Hope taught us to make the most of every day that we have here on earth by loving others. She unexpectedly went to heaven on February 25, 2020. We miss her immensely and honor her legacy by continuing our mission.
