After running an online store for a year and a half, Beth got an itch to make her vintage dreams a little more...tangible. At the time, images of a brick-and-mortar store began to flood her mind, but it was a bit beyond her financial reach at time. So what was a girl to do? Well, meet in the middle, of course: the mobile middle.
So she and her husband trolled the local Craigslist ads for a couple months, finally finding a 1960 Holly trailer with good bones! It wasn't necessarily love at first sight, but as soon as Beth stepped through the trailer's screen door, she knew this was the baby she'd been looking for, and they towed her home the next day.
Five months of labor and love after that, Holly emerged from the paint fumes and particle board with a new lease on life as St. Louis' first mobile vintage store, making her debut July 14, 2012, at the Indie Craft Revolution show.
Since then, she's been hitting the streets of the Gateway City and is excited to give vintage-lovers the opportunity to spend time with her in several ways:
