Redwood Coast Mercantile was born from the salty sea air of the Pacific Coast, and the mossy earth floor of redwood groves.
My name is Lindsey and I am a candle maker, mother, gardener, felter, and I enjoy seasonal living. I live in Northern California with my husband, toddler, and two cats. In my early twenties, I was confused about my life as I sat next to a computer working 8 hour days. I had been doing this since high school and thought this is what everyone is supposed to do as a career if you wanted to make money and be happy. When my mental and physical health started to decline, I decided it was time for a change. I quit my job and began working at community gardens, vegetable farms, and chicken hatcheries. During this time I researched everything about sustainable living and regenerative agriculture. It all came together.
