Wayfaring Goods is a one-woman business ran by Nicole Aufderhar. She is an avid tea drinker, collector of oddities and an award winning baker.
In college she couldn't decide what she wanted to be when she grew up so she studied everything from jazz guitar to graphic design to accounting to studio arts before finally graduating with a commercial photography degree. What was probably considered an unfocused mind at the time, provided her with a skill set that is uniquely perfect for running a creative business.
Nicole is inspired by the beautiful and varied landscapes of Minnesota, leading to the creation of high quality leather goods that have the look and feel of a rustic adventure.
"I want people to hold one of my creations and be taken back to their favorite place or be inspired to go out and find a new one."
