If you happen to see a bright red and pink caravan cruising the streets of Brisbane and south-east Queensland, do not be alarmed. You are not hallucinating, and you should follow this vehicle for vintage shopping fun.
The Best Little Vintage Van in Vegas is a travelling second hand market stall that flogs its wares from the back of an old-fashioned motor home. This is something of a holistic shopping experience. The setting – the van, it's Astro-turfed gardens and flamingo and garden gnome decorations – as well as the vintage clothing, home wares and bric a brac on display, will have you feeling like you've stepped through a time warp.
This event is founded and run by a dedicated vintage hoarder who now shares her expertise and collection with the public. Browse a huge selection of vintage clothing as well as retro treats like ceramic collectibles and cup and saucer sets.
The van will travel throughout the region, stopping at a new location each week. Markets, parks, festivals and even street corners are some of the sites to look out for. Visit the Best Little Vintage Van in Vegas Facebook page to stay informed of their schedule. Otherwise, keep your eyes peeled for the bright, multi-hued van.
