Jan 2013- I had this Idea. It had been brewing for a couple of years. It started as a joke, sort-of, but I always knew it was more. I used to joke with friends about having some sort of bus or trailer.We could travel around in this wildly decorated vehicle making crafts or selling whatever we had to sell. We would play disco music and wear crazy outfits! It would be a blast...
Soon after that I became obsessed with gypsy wagons. I imagined taking hipster to a whole new level by having one of these horse drawn wagons in East Nashville. I would cruise around 5 Points with my tapestries and shawls selling jewelry to passersby..
Horse drawn wagons were probably not legal but I had 100s of photos on Pinterest and I loved them so much! How could I make this possible?
THE AHA MOMENT! Let's see. First I wanted this moble craft/party space. i was obsessed with gypsy wagons and I needed a studio! Why not buy an airstream and make it LOOK like one of those French Gypsy caravans on the inside! The search was on! Hours, days,weeks and months on craigslist lead me to Athena, my 1967 Airstream Overlander..This was only the beginning!
