I was google searching fall styles the other day and ran across Punky Style. She is a lady after my own heart! “She has a serious addiction to all things vintage, antique and old and odd in general.” What struck me the most was her ability to make a store out of a cute tiny vintage trailer.
Isn’t this the cutest idea? How much fun would it be to shop at this mobile store? I love it!
Read below for how Punky came up with the idea….

“The idea for the store came in February 2009 when I was outgrowing my vintage storage,” Punky explained. “I really wanted to open a brick and mortar, but I couldn’t find anything unique, or really worth putting money into.”
While joking around one night she came up with the idea of selling vintage on the road. At first it seemed a little far-fetched, but never one to let a little challenge hold her back, Punky immediately began scouring eBay and the Want Ads for vintage trailers.
“Once I found the perfect vintage trailer it took me a few weeks of begging to get the classic car collector to sell it to me,” she said. “As soon as it was delivered I began working on redesigning the interior to work for a shop.”
Her 1954 Bellwood trailer became the Haberdash, her traveling vintage shop, and since its grand opening in June it has made its way to numerous markets, fairs, and private parties. Due to such a high demand, Punky has also developed the Haberdash website where fashion junkies near and far will be able to get their hands on her unique finds.
