As I was going through some photo files for printing, I found these and remembered that I haven’t blogged about it yet! Slow Coast is probably the most charming little shop that we encountered during our California road trip in December 2015. Yes, I know, I am so delayed!
A boutique shop in an AIRSTREAM! Oh, my beating heart. Oh, and look at their message:
“Come by, have some pie, grab a coffee and hang out in our vintage Airstream. Everything we sell directly supports our causes: oceans, forests, kids & community. In Slow We Trust,”
This is what dreams are made of! I instantly remembered my handmade/homemade mentor, Ana of BodyFoodAllNatural with some of their products.
I remember buying myself a bottle of their lavender infused wild honey
I absolutely love everything about this shop! Check out the letter I lifted from their website , http://www.slowcoast.org, below:
DEAR SLOW COAST TRAVELER,
was born in 2003 when our family took a long (1,200 mi/112 days) slow, deliberate walk along the ocean from Oregon to Mexico.
We decided that this stretch of coast, north of Santa Cruz and south of Half Moon Bay, would be our home.
Since then we’ve worked to support the farmers and artisans who are our neighbors and share our love for this place.
When you visit us on the Slow Coast
you’ll understand what we mean by “In Slow We Trust”.
When you buy our locally grown, made, and inspired Slow Coast
products you’ll help this community and give back to causes we support.
Please get in touch if you have any questions, if we can help you plan a Slow Coast
visit or event, and please stop by the Airstream.
J., Dana, Grayce and Julia Nichols

When visiting California, be sure to drop by their cool place and purchase to support their cause!
