Since we really need a mobile retail shop to house our vast supply of handcrafted items we have created over the last couple of years we are going to run a T-Shirt Campaign to get some initial funding to buy a used vintage trailer and convert it to a mobile retail shop to use while we are gathering the funding for our brand new replica 1961 Holiday House Travel Trailer Mobile Retail Shop. Once we purchase the vintage travel trailer, remake it into a mobile store and use it a few months we may be able to offer it as a reward for our main campaign or even rent it out for local craft businesses in North Florida and Southern Georgia to use at their own craft vending opportunities.
Eventually, we hope, that we will be able to attend enough events to spread the word about our long-term campaign and to show other craft vendors the advantages of getting their own vintage trailer mobile retail shop. North Florida could use more mobile retail vendors of all kinds and not just those Food Trucks. With the unique look of vintage travel trailers and the imagination of small business people in our area we could create a lot of interest in our trailers, our businesses and even help the event coordinators get more participants who may just be curious about our mobile retail business.
Beginning next week we are launching our T-Shirt Campaign and need to get at least 500 people to purchase them before the campaign ends. We are current in the process of making a promotional video for the campaign and will upload it up to YouTube as soon as it is done. The campaign will run for 3 weeks and no funds will be taken unless at least they receive 47 orders and we will not make any money until we have reached our goal. Below are a couple of pictures of the T-Shirt we created for the campaign and the kinds of shirts that will be available, even a hoodie, so we need everyone we know to like, share, tweet, and whatever else social media you belong to to get the word out. You can check our Short Term Campaign page for updates.
Thanks and Happy Crafting!
