Keith Emmons and Robert Ungemach first made their mark in the Bishop Arts District about eight years ago, selling all natural, made-from-scratch bath products out of their storefront, Shambhala. As time went on, their collection of Fair Trade and Made in America products grew along with their interest in selling jewelry, candles, home goods and more, and they new it was time for a change.
New wood-planked walls complement the retro copper ceiling and serve as the backdrop for their unique display system, but the focus of the rebranded store remains on the stories, the people, and worthy causes behind each product. “If we really want to create a better world,” Emmons says. “We have to start living better lives that include care and concern for the people who provide our goods.”
