Vagabondia was born out of an insatiable passion for travel, so it's no surprise that when it comes to style, I'm an obstinate believer that it should be centered around exploration. It should be about serendipitous encounters with pieces that exemplify your character in the most unexpected and most exhilarating of places, be it in your hometown thrift shop or in a bustling village market in a new country. It should be about gracefully stumbling out of your element and experimenting with shapes and colors and patterns and prints, just because you can. It should be about discovery, about connection, and about continually fostering your personal expression. Essentially, a no-holds-barred approach to wearing your creativity on your sleeve.

 

My goal at Vagabondia is simple: I strive to offer unique, accessible, and  timeless pieces from places near and far that above all, tell a story. From colorful vintage clothing from the early 1900s to 1980s and repurposed art, to handcrafted stationary and accessories, to colorful textiles, traditional garb and folk pieces that I pick along my travels, I take pride that there is something for every style, budget and occassion in the traveling Vagabondia trove.  

 

So abandon all inhibitions, at least for a short while, and let that explorative spirit wander.

 

Trust me, it's worth it.
