The Nomads

Julie and Steve Lawton recently retired following 30 years as retail furniture store owners. Passionate travelers, they followed their hearts, adopted an elephant and began searching the world for amazing handcrafts. They live in the Colorado Rockies surrounded by nature and their collected artwork.
