If you love all things vintage and retro (and delicious coffee), you are sure to love Lady Luck's Beanshine!

Owned and operated by Lady Luck herself, Brisbane local, Amanda Miller, this exciting venture offers much more than your typical coffee van.

Take your event to the next level with Amanda treating your guests to award-winning Di Bella coffee and other quality beverages from her shiny black Mustang and matching classic teardrop caravan!

Dream't up by Amanda, who is known for her fiery red hair and cheeky ways, Lady Luck's Beanshine is a unique brand, which recalls the pinup girls and classic cars of the 1950's. The mobile coffee teardrop itself was custom designed by Amanda, so she could sleep in it for early morning swap meets.

"It's decked out with a dual fuel coffee machine (gas and battery powered, so no noisy generators!), electric grinder and of course, all the tasty syrups and milk to suit all dietary requirements. And to top it off, the teardrop is towed behind its stunning black 66 Mustang. Tell me that's not better than a boring old coffee van?" Amanda said.

Amanda was inspired to create Lady Luck's Beanshine whilst attending a car show "I was waiting in line for my morning coffee (from one of those boring vans), and there was absolutely no vibe. It was just another job for the barista as they showed no interest in the amazing scene and hotted up cars surrounding them. So I just thought, how much better coffee would be served from a seriously kool rig and from a Barista who fits the scene?"

With Lady Luck's Beanshine, Amanda offers a range of beverages, including Di Bella coffee, quality teas, hot chocolates, chai lattes, iced coffees, soft drinks, fruit juices, bottled water and light snacks, which can all be enjoyed in a dedicated area next to the stunning black 66 Mustang with shaded seating and 'kool' tunes.

It's no wonder Lady Luck's Beanshine is proving popular at car shows, school fetes and weddings around Brisbane "My Mustang is picture perfect for wedding photo shoots with the teardrop setup at the reception to provide guests an endless supply of coffee and drinks" Amanda said.

Lady Luck's Beanshine has attended the Fine Iron Car Club & Custom show, the Eliminators Hot Rod Show, the All American Car Show, the Vintage Speedcar Association morning tea, Just Scraping By BMX jam, Bimonthly Webbys Old Skool Cruiz's, 4x4 Show & Swap, and so many more fabulous events.

Amanda's next project is already on the horizon as she wishes to find a permanent site for Lady Luck's Beanshine. "I'm looking for a permanent home where I can set up shop and trade Monday to Friday, still offering the same products and services, while continuing with the events on weekends."

The space will be "very chilled with old skool memorabilia, comfy couches, tunes, and of course all furry friends are very welcome", Amanda said.


In the meantime, Lady Luck's Beanshine is available for car shows, swap meets, festivals and weddings.

"Lady Luck's is all about bringing back 'Old Skool'" said Amanda. "Providing great service, super friendly atmosphere and just a chillaxed environment where everyone is welcome - to sit back, relax, drink great coffee, listen to tunes and have a chat." And if you're wondering how good the coffee is, Amanda declares: "Bloody excellent of course!"
