Vintage Caravan – Petticoat Junction

As most of you know, last year I was featured in the Vintage Caravan Magazine run by Lisa Mora from Queensland Australia…well for 1 year I was subscribed to the Magazine for free, so I thought I would show you some of my favourite caravans from that Magazine here.

…and here is my first favourite one!

Owned by the lovely Gail Campbell from Laidley, Queensland….
and just looook at that lovely car!

What a divine caravan this is…it is an old converted 1977 classic Glendale, which is only 12 foot long…Gail loves this fact, because she says it is small enough for her to be able to handle herself.

You see her business is selling vintage frocks and she likes to take them to vintage fairs…so you can imagine the drop jaw faces, when she rolls up in this lovely van and car ensemble ay!

(before the Glendale was converted)

she fills it to the brim with her genuine vintage dresses and wares and captures the hearts of many who  walk past..enticed into a simpler life gone by…

She has decorated the inside with bright and whimsy wonderfuls…
That checkerboard floor (I want that) those retro curtains, The Tretchikoff picture…
Its sooo divine in style…

…and here she is, the retro Mamma herself…
Loving those glasses Gail 😉

She is a gal after my own heart…I love the way she has decorated her van…

Inside and out.
