Last month I visited my twin sister Evi in New York and we attended a street fair in Patchogue, NY. It was a hot night, the beer was abundant, and the street smelled of vendor food (YUM). One thing stood out like a sore thumb; a fashion boutique on wheels. We were so curious so we boarded the vehicle. Much to our surprise, it was roomy and really charming. Although we didn't buy anything, it did get my wheels turning. I couldn't stop talking about it. I wondered if an arts and crafts store on wheels would be of interest to people.
I am considering purchasing a vintage trailer to cart my artistic wares. A rolling gallery not to replace my beloved display in the beautiful Artisans On The Ave, but instead to highlight certain talents in a way that brings art to the people. I would like to feature fine arts and crafts, teach crafting classes and sell crafting supplies. I've been doing plenty of research and continue to learn more about the idea, but would welcome some feedback or interest from my supporters. This idea is evolving daily, mostly because the size and type of trailer changes with each wonderful one I see.
Oh...I'm not quitting my day job. I Love my Kravis Center (Check out our new season brochure)! This would be a nights and weekends deal.
