Here's My Story

I would like to start off by thanking you for being here with me, offering part of your day to learn more about The Wolf In Me. I would like to introduce you to myself and to my brand.

My name is Tonya Harley, the owner of The Wolf In Me. The Wolf In Me is a mindful community and marketplace which celebrates culture and creativity. My goals are to inspire and help people feel more connected. 

The Wolf In Me marketplace offers treasures from around the world, something for every demographic. With an intentional selection process, I look for International brands and American designers who've truly tapped into their creativity and believe in both beauty and quality. Once their creations have caught my eye, I then seek to learn their story. How are their products made? Who are the humans behind the brand or product? What's their story and what do they stand for? 

This is NOT a marketplace based on quick financial transactions. This IS a marketplace and community which celebrates the creativity of humans from around the globe. Providing you with special and often unique products you are sure to love and appreciate long after purchasing. I posses a foundational belief the world needs less meaningless transactions and mass production. Shopping should be an experience filled with love, intention and even a little dose of story telling.

 The Wolf In Me was birthed in 2018 after my seventeen-year career in creative higher education came to an end. I decided to let my heart take the lead, forgo the familiar path and channel the “wolf” in me to actually build something meaningful in an organic way. I trusted the dots would connect if I tuned into the things which set my soul on fire. I truly loved working for and with creative minds and helping artists promote their talents. I have always had an eye for beauty and quality; maybe it’s the Taurus in me. Being comprised of six different nationalities myself, I am passionate in the belief - ALL cultures and humans are connected. My intention is to give people a meaningful alternative to accessorizing their worlds. In addition, I want to give makers and brands another platform for their creations to be recognized and celebrated.

I’m building this brand for those who are inspired by creativity and other cultures. For the wolves out there pursuing what sets their souls on fire, auuu...  For the individuals who are tired of buying massed produced, poor-quality, meaningless merchandise. For those who want to feel connected to something bigger when making a purchase. This brand is for those who believe in the power of human touch. For those who want to accessorize their worlds with beautiful creations based on intention and love. This brand is for The Wolf In Me and The Wolf In YOU!

I genuinely thank you for taking the time to read through The Wolf in Me’s story and vision. I would love to connect with you if you have any questions, suggestions, or general feedback!

With love & gratitude,
