Fred and Sharon Lundahl each served about 30 years in the U.S. Foreign Service working in American Embassies abroad. It was always an adventure to head out to a new country, to try to learn a new language and, most of all, to make new friends.
We remember early times when we served in small African outposts. Most of our careers were spent in third-word countries, as those were the most fun. Now, in our second lives, we travel to find new foreign experiences and treasures, and to bring those back to share in our store.
One purpose of our store, and of our pictures, is to show that people everywhere are the same. Wherever you might land, and you make friends, you invite those people into your family. When we are able to do this, we find it is hard to make war against our family and friends.
