Woodies is a lifestyle brand that I created in 2012. Making sunglasses from wood reminded me of the Woodie car from the 1950's. The Woodie was a blend of machinery and nature that always fascinated me. They always seemed like they were headed to the beach too. With Woodies, I want to bring that feeling to you.
Some of my favorite memories growing up were trips to the beach with my dad. Here's a picture of my folks. Even though I grew up in Oklahoma, I guess I've had a bit of surfer dude in me!
I scour the globe to find the style that best fits the Woodies vibe and bring it to YOU. I am a full-time traveler, a nomad, a wanderer, or as one girl put it; a hobo with a website.
