Gatherings Collective was founded by owner Lauryn Schneider in August 2021 with the mission of combining the sustainability and affordability of a thrift store with the experience and service of a boutique for a unique, one-of-a-kind customer shopping experience.

After a year of selling online with great responses and excitement from the community, Schneider took the leap to open a storefront. She chose a cozy little spot in a historic building in the heart Downtown Fargo, a community she is deeply passionate about. You can now shop with us online and at our permanent meetinglocation at 12 Broadway N.

We believe secondhand items have a lot of life left in them and deserve new homes with people who appreciate them! The bread and butter of our business is secondhand clothing, and we also offer home goods and accessories, such as vases, jewelry, and handbags. Our products are all secondhand, sourced through both local shopping and donations. Schneider goes through each item herself and categorizes based on style, season, size, and brand to develop a curated collection. Our main focus is on providing a wide range of styles and sizes to ensure we have something available for everyone!
