We are a family of four living in Longmont, Colorado. The idea for Yore slowly began with the realization that we were collecting more things than we needed and spending money on cheaply made items with short life spans. Acknowledging all of this clutter and waste drove us towards a more minimalistic lifestyle in which we put much more thought into every item we purchase. After resolving to be more conscious consumers, we were having a hard time finding retailers that aligned themselves with our values. That is where the idea for Yore was born, to bring together a collection of goods that meet everyday needs. We look for products that adhere to three basic criteria:
We want our goods to efficiently serve a purpose in our customer’s daily life.
We seek out products that do what they are meant to do, are attractive while doing it, and can endure frequent use.
Where and how our products are made is important to us. We want to work with makers and companies who conduct their business ethically.
Our commitment is to continually provide you with products that heed these standards. We hope you will find something new and useful each time you visit.
