Katherine Heigl's New Lane Road Mercantile
"My deepest desire is to make creating moments of peace, beauty, luxury, and mindfulness easy and joyful for everyone by providing carefully curated goods from artists, artisans, and small businesses that give back to their communities and the world at large."
At New Lane Road Mercantile, we envision a world where every purchase becomes a meaningful act of compassion and connection. I started the shop as a means of selling my original art and graphic designs to raise funds for the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation. Founded by my mother Nancy and me to significantly make a difference in the lives of the abandoned, neglected, and abused companion animals in our country.
I decided to expand the store to include my passion for all things lovely, healing, useful, and inspiring. I have curated from crafters with an eye for excellence and a heart dedicated to giving back.
New Lane Road Mercantile was born from my desire to make a difference while providing a shopping experience that inspires you to consciously craft moments that matter while simultaneously making a positive impact in the world as you do so.
Over the last fifteen years, I have had the privilege of calling the Utah mountains my home, and through my experiences living here, I have found a certain peaceful presence I’m determined to share.
The goods curated for New Lane Road Mercantile are meant to do just that by delighting each of your senses and inspiring you to create moments of peace and joy every day.
It took moving to the mountains to inspire me to slow down and appreciate the moment. My goal is to take what I’ve learned and help inspire the same for you…without the life-altering move!
