The trailer put off a warm glow and a cool vibe earlier this month when we had a Friends and Family launch party. We, like most people, needed a deadline to push us to get the project done! And a trial run of putting it all together was not only fun, but got us ready for the real deal at Vintage Fest America July 8th and 9th at the Dakota County Fairgrounds. It was a beautiful summer evening filled with jazz records, mojitos, cool merchandise and dear friends. We had great reaction to the merchandise and almost everyone walked away with something they couldn’t live without. Particular favorites were the cabin section and the metal bar trays. We see it as the first of many interesting events with fascinating things (and people) from around the world.
