HOW A 1000 YEAR OLD PILGRIMAGE INSPIRED THE BUEN CAMINO CANDLE BRAND, AND THE CULTURE WITHIN WHAT IS NOW KNOWN AS CLASSIC CITY GIFT

A Classic Story...

The Beginning

In the summer of 2012, Classic City Gift founder, Travis Ebbert, was preparing to make a 500-mile pilgrimage across Spain called El Camino de Santiago (The Way of St. James). Travis was eager to begin his trek: exploring the beautiful countryside, meeting fellow travelers (pilgrims), and sharing his passion and faith in God with others. Never could he have imagined the adventure upon which he was about to embark would eventually lead him into the candle industry.

Alongside a friend and over 100,000 other pilgrims he’d never met, Travis began his journey. Traveling an average of 15 miles per day, it took him 33 days to complete the inspiring pilgrimage. Little did he know, the “Camino,” as the pilgrims referred to it, would also be the source of inspiration for another journey he would soon begin.
