About WabiSabi

WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO:

WabiSabi is a thrift store in Moab, Utah. We strive to minimize waste and maximize resources in our geographically isolated town.  We pride ourselves in processing over 350 tons worth of donations per year and keeping almost all of it out of the landfill through sales, donations, art supplies, and recycling.  Proceeds from the sales of donated materials are distributed to local nonprofit organizations and support WabiSabi programs.

OUR MISSION:

WabiSabi is the nonprofit that receives, revalues, and redistributes needed resources to strengthen the Moab community

OUR VISION:

WabiSabi’s hope is that one day everyone in Moab will use their resources wisely and share their excess with those in need.

The word “WabiSabi” refers to a Japanese concept, one that has many different English translations. The definitions that speak to our mission are those relating to the beauty of imperfection and transcending ordinary ways of looking at things. Properly employed, the imperfect is sometimes more than perfect!
