Keep Going - an Outdoor Adventure

We hit the road in our Sprinter van to get away and get inspired. Follow our YouTube channel and get ready for some cool outdoor designs dropping soon!

Who’s haunting your house harder right now? You? Or actual ghosts? They’re probably annoyed that you’re doing their job better than them. You know, moaning, wandering the halls, moving things around in the kitchen with no particular purpose... there’s no actual reason for this question, just wanted to make a funny observation........

Funny how things happening around you can change your perspective on stuff like... say... an alien abduction.  2019- "Probably rather not..." 2020- "Probably, why not!?"

Making our online store experience similar to visiting our Venice store

I just skated up to Santa Monica this morning to grab a coffee and take some time to myself to think. I shot a video with my good friend Pedro last night for a project he’s working on with Charity Water (I’ll let you guys know when it comes out). During the shoot he asked me a lot of questions about Vardagen and whenever I get interviewed I start to realize how much information is bottled up inside me. I don’t share very often because I just assume what I know isn’t that interesting to others, and finding time to share is always a problem for me. However, last night was really fun to open up and just give Pedro and his crew a more in-depth look at what I’ve been working on for over a decade.   

I’ve been trying to figure out lately how to give our online customers a similar experience to our in-store customers. It’s definitely a huge challenge to be personable online and there’s a lot of little tidbits about Vardagen that you pick up if you visit our Flagship store in Venice. Translating that to your screen is difficult. We want to hear your story and to be able to share ours, to pick up on what you’re into and see how one of our products might connect into your world. Online it feels more like “here’s what we’ve got, want any of it?” and we kind of hate that. We added a chat and we try to be really quick on responding on it so feel free to spark up a conversation!  

I’m also going to take some questions and conversations that I have with in-store customers, break them into bite-sized chunks and post them to this blog. Hopefully it can give more insights, encourage other entrepreneurs and just give you some stories behind the shirt you’re wearing. I’ll also respond to questions from you, so feel free to throw anything my way… email here.
