Tiny Trailers- A Girl Cave

 I was just sitting down to enjoy a yogurt and fruit breakfast and peruse the ETSY Blogs this morning when my friend, Barb called and said "'get your butt over here" to the Vintage Flea Market at the fairgrounds.  I'm not in the market for more stuff, and would probably have passed it by, but when she mentioned 'Blog Candy' she got me. 
 I'm glad that I went.  There were lots of great re-purposed items, but the thing that caught my eye were the tiny trailers from the 50's and 60's which had been restored inside and out. All the women I talked with were envisioning them as 'girl caves', offices, guest rooms or craft spaces when not being used as a vacation home. 
 Couldn't you just imagine, pulling into a campsite at Yellowstone and sitting in these cute little chairs?  You'd be right out of the pages of Sunset Magazine.
 Another cozy interior... Don't you just love the yellow oven?  When these trailers were at the height of popularity, the big colors were turquoise and pink.  Now you can find them restored in all colors and styles.
Awhile ago I bought this cool book on Teardrops and Tiny Trailers, which has the styles and history of these cute trailers.
My husband and I are not the do-it-yourself-restoration types, but I almost have him convinced to someday consider a new Teardrop and customize it for Oregon Duck Football games!
