Tofino: A small surf town on the West Coast of Vancouver Island where Modest Maverick was created!
It was a week or two before my first Tofino Public Market or any market for that matter. I was nervous and unsure as to what the heck I was doing but I was going to give it a go regardless of my insecurities.
We were en route to Victoria when I came across some fabric that I instantly drooled over and said, "Ooo! Beach Blankets!" Needless to say, I purchased the drool worthy fabric, got home and quickly learned how to sew. The first market came and I sold the few blankets I had made and was so excited! The granola, flowers my husband grew and the jewelry I had planned on selling...well...they quickly got pushed aside. The blankets were a hit! On a side note: I do make good granola though, just sayin'!
These blankets are more than just a blanket, they are a lifestyle. They are a constant reminder to get outside more often, go for more beach walks, have more campfires with friends, create more memories.
If you take away anything from my business I hope it is this...
I hope you remember that the outdoors will always inspire you to do and be your best. When you are lost, you will find your way in nature, always.
With loads of gratitude,
