Found objects that stimulate the imagination. Who owned it ? What is it used for? How is it used? Where did it come from? We love to travel and prefer to rummage at a second hand store in a foreigner country than a souvenir shop at tourist traps. We enjoy recovering relics, seeing the beauty in patina and respect the characteristics of the wabi-sabi aesthetic - roughness, simplicity, economy, austerity, modesty, and appreciation of the ingenuous integrity of natural objects and processes.
Though our shop you may find an object of curiosity , a one of a kind or rare artifact of sorts. It may have a story of how we had obtained it, where it’s been or some narration of embellished folklore for you to speculate on or add your story to.
S P A N is not antique shop or a thrift store. We like to share wares that are unique and as we S P A N , we acquire curiosities and curate them amongst our favorite things . Aesthetically pleasing or Functionally curious may make its way on our shelves and into your hands.
