Oh the memories!

In March of 2012, The Gathered Earth opened as an addition to a local garden center in Appleton, WI. The focus was to bring unique garden art and nature related gifts to our little neck of the woods. In 2014, The Gathered Earth parted ways with the garden center environment to set up shop right off of the highway in Appleton. Five years and two moves later, our gift shop now resides in the heart of Marquette on Washington Street, just a few blocks from Lake Superior.


When searching for unique products to fill our shop, it has always been a priority to find products made locally, in America, or from Fair Trade organizations. Not only do we believe this is the right thing to do, but we also know how important it is to our clients to know the story behind their purchase, specifically where it’s from and how it’s made.


Although the store has gone through many changes, our goal has always remained the same:


do our very best to bring our customers one of a kind, beautiful gifts that have a story to tell, along with the knowledge and enthusiasm essential to pass down their stories.


With over 30 years of combined retail, floral, garden center, and landscape design experience, we know how important it is to provide the community and visitors with an exceptional level of customer service, which we strive to achieve every single day.


stop in soon to say hello! We would love to meet you!

Our story
After many years of dreaming about relocating back to Andy’s hometown of Marquette, we are proud to announce that we have finally made the move!
Our primary goal is to serve our clients to the best of our ability. Whether you are a proud local or a visitor from out of town, we are here for YOU!
The entire Gathered Earth family is forever thankful for all of the support we have received over the years in Fox River Valley. We have genuinely enjoyed serving the entire community and becoming friends with many of you over in Wisconsin. It is both bitter & sweet, but all-in-all we are ecstatic to take a leap and become Yoopers!
We feel truly blessed to have served you over the last few years and are overwhelmed with joy to be able to call Marquette our new home. The stories behind our incredible gifts deserve to be known, and we are on a mission to share them with the UP, we can promise you that!
Best wishes, 
The Smiths - Andy & Erica
