Alison and Jay Carroll packed their bags in 2015 and headed south from LA down to Joshua Tree where they put down roots in Wonder Valley. Yes, Wonder Valley is a real place, and it’s every bit as magical as it sounds. Housed in an old 1940s gas station, the newly minted Wonder Valley Oil Shop sells Carroll’s own artisanal namesake olive oil, harvested in Northern California, plus a unisex face oil—the brand’s foray into the beauty space. Look for made-in-LA supersoft graphic tees, a few carefully chosen pieces from Carl Auböck (a cheese board and knife, a bottle opener, and a corkscrew), plus ceramic vases fired right here in the high desert.
