About Raquel Surally Wallace

With an obsession for the creative, colourful and quirky I am Co-founder of The Lost Lanes a marketplace where creative people sell creative things. 

Evoking a sense of something we are very passionate about.  The Lost Lanes, is a tribute to our favourite pastime on holiday, searching for those little lane ways hiding quirky shops, independent cafe's and tiny wine bars you can sit in until the early hours and still not tire of. The Lost Lanes is our way to bring this sense of discovery, this sense of finding something unique, quirky independent and most of all creative directly to you lounge a la' worldwide web! 

As avid travellers and backpackers we love getting lost in lane-ways from Brighton to Melbourne, Barcelona to Morrocco they inspire and bring us real joy.  We want to bring that to every single person who stumbles upon our marketplace, we want them to feel they have discovered something really special, something really unique, something that's made and produced with a whole lot of love and most of all something that's Made By People!

We are The Lost Lanes, we are Made By People.
