My Latest Project on Kickstarter

So I've been harassing my friends on Facebook for the past week now so its about time I shared my latest project with you! I've just launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the launch of a mobile vintage shop that I have been dreaming up for some time now. The page has a lot of the nitty gritty details but in short, I'm going to buy a 1960s or 1970s pull-behind trailer, gut and renovate it, and turn it into a little shop on wheels that I'll drive around New York and beyond! It'll be kind of like the awesome gourmet food trucks out there, just filled with hand-selected vintage clothes and accessories! Mobile retail is picking up on the West Coast but New York really doesn't have any shops on wheels, so this will be a first of its kind!

Please check out my page, and pledge if you feel so inclined. I just added a new reward tier and the first person to pledge $65, gets all the loot below including a 1970s hand-painted cotton scarf, a pair of glamorous 1960s flower earrings and a '70s suede purse with silver trim. If that doesn't strike your fancy, pledging over $50 gets you La Poubelle Vintage store credit! Plus, you'll get to watch a really cute video made by my friend Janelle Jones who is a super talented photographer/videographer.


  1. Love what you're doing and all, but please stop saying your trailer will be the first in NY. There has been an amazing Mobile vintage shop in Bushwick for two years. It is also a 1970's trailer, and it's amazing

    1. Yes! I do know about the Bushwick trailer now. When I was researching the project and making the video, they didn't come up (her website is fairly new). I've since been to check it out and it is amazing! Not trying to step on anyone's toes, there is room for 2!
