What is ten feet long, has two wheels and a pair of wings?
This does! Ta da…..
Somehow I found and bought the most darling little trailer. I’ll sell with at my markets in California. It all happened so fast. I had no idea last Thursday morning that I’d be the owner of a vintage trailer by the time it struck midnight. I had even gone to rent a u haul cargo trailer at the end of the day for the upcoming Alameda market. I was even excited about towing that to market. But something got me looking on Craigslist and suddenly there were some sweet trailers in there needing a new home (this after months of nada). One phone call lead to a few email exchanges and I was off to beat the competition in a couple hours.
A 1964 Shasta is what I got. Since I got her (or him, not sure yet), I’ve learned to hitch, tow and even back it into a space (though I’m still on the left end of a learning curve on this last one). It’s a fixer upper on the inside and I’m happy to be in charge of that.
Here’s my darling’s début market. It’s hard to shoot a market stall where it looks nice, but believe me it was a pretty homey feel despite this image which makes it look jumbly.
Anyway, I’m blessed to have this and loving it lots. Hoping I get into the Sacramento Antiques Faire Sunday to set up again. Apparently there’s a waiting list. Fingers are crossed!
I’m learning that lots of people I know are into or have a vintage trailer. Let me know if you own or want to own one. I’ll be posting on the progress of the makeover as I go. Would love some advice!
