Wanderlust is the brainchild of Vanessa and Dan Lurie (hey that’s us!). We started our business in September 2010 from a love of vintage and handmade and being inspired by the over 600 food carts here in Portland Oregon.
Once we had the idea, we found our 1969 Cardinal Deluxe travel trailer on Craigslist and spent the summer building out the trailer and turning it into the perfect mobile shop. For over two years our shop on wheels has specialized in vintage goods and handmade accessories for you and your home. We travel to events like street fairs and craft shows, towing the trailer and selling our wares. Our trailer shop has been featured in places like Bust magazine, Lucky magazine, the Today Show, USA Today and the front page of MSN.com.
The Storefront!In Spring of 2012 we stumbled upon an available storefront on bustling 28th Street next door to Holiday Hair, a new brick-and-mortar salon that was previously run out of a trailer. It seemed like fate to expand into a new storefront location right next door to another business that had just done the same thing. In July 2012 we opened the new storefront on Southeast Ankeny.
Wanderlust, in Portland Oregon, is open at 2804 SE Ankeny Street (1 block South of East Burnside on 28th) Wednesday-Saturday 10:30am-6:30pm and Sunday 11am-5pm.
