Modern Day Nomads

Have you ever thought to yourself as you're sitting in your cubicle, looking at a spreadsheet, drinking bad office coffee, "If only I could just travel the country making money doing what I love"? That is precisely what Mackenzie and Blaine of The Local Branch do every day!

Mackenzie and Blaine live and work out of a 1979 Airstream trailer they bought when it was in serious need of some love and they transformed it into a rustic chic cabin on wheels. Please do yourself a favor and take the tour of the transformation on their blog! Christina and I both love transforming spaces that have been neglected or just aren't being utilized to their full potential--we particularly love that in small spaces where every area must work double or triple duty. The Local Branch live/work/play Airstream is all that and more!

Not only does this couple travel the United States selling their goods at festivals and events, they also make and sell all American made items for their shop IN their Airstream trailer. Anything you buy from The Local Branch will have an American made story and will include the city it came from on the tag. Since everything is made by hand here in the USA, you can be sure your purchases from these two nomads are supporting our national economy and small business.

Follow The Local Branch on social media to see where they will show up next. Mackenzie and Blaine have me feeling inspired to take risks, make old things new, and support American small businesses and I hope you feel inspired, too!
