Our Story

" Travel is more than the seeing of sights, it is a change that goes on deep and permanent in the ideas of living."

Miriam Beard


We, Luke and Abby, are a husband and wife team who run this shop of ours full-time out of our Dallas, Texas home. Wayfaren began in the summer of 2012 out of a passion for the beauty and life-changing power of travel. In our beginnings, we dove into the world of the handcrafted, exploring affinities for woodworking, lettering, and design. Soon we had a vision for map. A timeless, handcrafted centerpiece at the heart of people's homes - encouraging them to reminisce on past travels, while dreaming up new adventures as well. By the Grace of God, our maps took off and in 2014 we took the leap into full-time entrepreneurship!


We have found such joy in this life-giving adventure we are on with our shop. Each day, this life is a gift - to do something you love, with the one you love. We try not to take this privilege lightly, and hope in return we can in some small way bless each and every customer.
