Meet Marisa Folz, the owner and creator of The Wander Shop, a women's lifestyle shop featuring apparel and accessories curated of local and small brands.
Inspired by her love to travel, she knew The Wander Shop was destined for life on the road. After a few months of pop-up's in a tent, she found the perfect home for the shop, in a 1963 Airstream Overlander. It was run-down and worn-out, but it had character and most importantly, it was hers, a classic Americana. It took 63 long hardworking days, but thanks to her family and friends they removed 53 years of dirt and brought it back to it's prime.
The Wander Shop opened the doors of the Airstream in April of 2016 at their homebase at Eucalyptus Gardens in Wilton Manors, a beautiful diverse community. In September of 2016, they welcomed a new ship to the fleet, Vagabond, their wandering Airstream for events.
After a few years of enduring the mobile business Marisa was eyeing the idea of having a bigger and more permanent space. One day while walking to get a juice from JB&C in the upcoming Flagler Village she noticed a sign that said "space available for lease". She stopped in her tracks and knew this was her next move. In July 2018, the doors of The Wander Shop's first storefront opened in Flagler Village. In May 2021 the storefront moved to a bigger location in Oakland Park which is the current location.
Marisa loves to share her story with those she meets to inspire others to follow their dreams. The Wander Shop has become more than just a boutique. It's an experience, a journey and a place to discover passion.
