Our Wander Life
Lifestyle for the wandering soul: with a focus on intentionally living.
We are on a mission to wander as far as we can, whenever we can, with as little as possible.
To live our passions and chase our dreams.
To salvage as many found items as we can find, giving them new life along the way. Each item with the purpose of representing the moments of days, the telling of tales, and the passing of time.
To shop primarily secondhand + handmade, while supporting and advocating for small, local, & ethical businesses.
Most importantly, to live our own idea of our best life, while encouraging others to do the same.
Through offering our creative services, we are passionate about partnering with: local gems, small & ethical businesses, in a way that helps them tell their stories and reach their goals.
It's simple, we live our life with a feeling and an understanding that everything has a meaning, a deeper purpose, or connection, at least it should. The places we go, the people we meet, even the things we own, are all a part of a bigger story. If we aren't intentionally connecting with the world around us, the items we own – whether to the past, present, or future, to the people who owned them long before or the people who will own them once we are gone, down to the people who poured their heart and soul into creating them –– what's the point?
The things we surround ourselves with should have meaning, tell a story, preserve a history, provide value to our lives, beyond creating an image we want to project, or fulfilling our desires for the latest trends being pushed upon us. There should be more substance than that, don't you think?
We truly believe when we can connect with our surroundings, our belongings, or help the people who worked tirelessly to gather them and/or craft them, live out their dreams and passions through our purchases – we have everything we need, and more than we ever could have wanted. We are fulfilled. We are rich. Living this way has truly become more, and our lives have become a living breathing scrapbook, filled with tokens, memories, hopes, dreams, & better quality, more meaningful goods.
