VAGABOND JOE’S FELLOW TRAVELERS

Vagabond Joe has met some incredible fellow travelers on the road through Stranger in Paradise – the first theme to the online store soon to launch.

STRANGER IN PARADISE

Vagabond Joe is about showcasing Contributors talent and work in its entirety; and not solely the sale of the products they create for the online store. And so,  proudly presenting the individuals brave enough to take this leap of faith before there was even a website in existence, please see listed here below the very first Contributors and a sample of their own portfolio of work. Soon you will be able to buy the limited edition originals created especially for vagabondjoe.com by these fellow wanderers. For sneak peaks into the Contributor’s Stranger in Paradise treasures visit Vagabond Joe’s Facebook page and follow this blog by clicking the media buttons at left.

THE JOURNEY IS THE DESTINATION…

The journey is about discovering objects of desire, new & old, from all walks of life all around the globe. Vagabond Joe explores the places, people, stories, ideas behind each theme and reveals the novelties collected along the way.

His fellow travelers are a handpicked diverse selection of Contributors…fashion designers, jewelry makers, artists, vintage traders, book sellers…’it takes all kinds’. We see ideas envisioned through each Contributor’s eyes and what the spark of a new theme inspires them to create or discover…

Some fellow travelers custom make limited edition designer products and one-off originals for each theme, which are available solely through vagabondjoe.com. Other contributors source secondhand gems worldwide whilst all books strange and wonderful are shipped in by our local independant The Book Lounge.

OUR OWN DRUM

 

Vagabond Joe’s mission is to showcase the talent of individuals, celebrate the independents, discover the weird and wonderful and march to the beat of our own drum. Want to know more? Navigate around the site and hit the ABOUT, THEMES and CONTRIBUTORS tabs at top to explore further…

Build a unique gift box or two (‘one for you, two for me’) and have it have it hand delivered…
