Trailer Slugs and Stuff!
Here ya go... two of the cutest 'trailer slugs' I have ever seen! This 'Glamping' can wear a girl out!
While waiting for our pizza, I snuck out and went next door to the little gift shop to take a photo of this cute suitcase... I had seen the case earlier in the day... and the front side is uber cute... this is the back side... so I figured I would sneak a photo of it, after the shop was closed... How cute is this and what a great idea... the price tag was $250.00... and it weighed a ton! lol! but I could certainly see one of these by my trailer....
Even the side was finished in mosaic tiles.... if I recall, on the front side there was a 'broken' plate that was a 'frame' to add a personal photo.
Over in Coarsegold, we stopped off at a little plaza that sold hand made goods, from soaps and jams to jewelery and clothes... I found this cute tray that was made by a 13year old girl. She had a small section (booth) of things that she made with corks and what not's... I just had to buy this tray for two reasons... it was cute and would look cute in my trailer and... to support and encourage this young lady..
Well time to hit the trail and get into some more mischief.
Wagons HO and Happy Trails!!!!
We had such fun re-vamping our "Lil Twinkie" 12foot 1976 SCAMP trailer that we wanted to do it again....but this time with a Vintage Canned Ham Trailer....so Lil Twinkie went to a new loving home and we searched till we found "Gracie's Victorian Rose".... We bought her for $950.00....a tad bit more then I wanted to spend...but structurally GVR is in great shape thou she does need some "cosmetic work" and so now the fun begins! Just hope the old check book holds out!!!! aacckk! For any of you that have ever "re-done" a Vintage Trailer project...the initial purchase of the trailer is always the cheapest part! But oh the fun, the shopping, the demolition, and finally the restoration!"Gracie's Victorian Rose" is a bit of a mystery as we do not know her true age (what woman admits her age? haha!)...the previous owner did not have the title & the Washington Dept. of License...could not find enough of the Vin number to run through their system. The License plate is from 1963...(but thanx to the help of a friend who has the same exact trailer) we are assuming it is a 15foot 1959 Aljo Trailer. So by doing the math that makes GVR 51 years old and that makes her younger than me! Hmmmmmm! Unless through our research we find out that she is actually older!Gary is sliding through cyber space looking for Bits, Pieces & Parts for Gracie's Victorian Rose..... the Internet is a great tool for finding resources and information.I found the perfect fabric and will be sewing the new curtains this coming week not to mention continue to call Upholstery Shops for quotes on the Sofa and the Bankette seats.... other then that Gary & I will do all the rest of the re-model ourselves. Well I will be posting LOTS of pics as we progress. Today's task was demolition, fun but dirty!So do peek in from time to time and watch the progress.
