Humble beginnings

Moab welcomed WabiSabi  in 2002 when the founder Sarah Bauman flung open the doors to her living room and invited the community in to donate and buy goods, support the nonprofit community, and dream about ways to make Moab a better place. 

WabiSabi originated from a desire to create a thrift store that would also serve as a community center -- a place for people to learn about other nonprofits, make connections, and brainstorm about creative ways to make the world a better place.

It was also intended to empower individuals to actively support their community by donating goods, volunteer time, and helping area non-profits through their purchases.
