So it's my mission with this caravan is to buy everything second hand, up-cycled or vintage, for most of the caravan essentials this is proving to be relatively easy from finding vintage kitchen utensils at car boot sales and charity shops to buying someone's second hand vinyl flooring.
And this is my latest purchase a lovely lady sold me her old vinyl flooring!!! I think this is going to look fantastic in the caravan, I also have a brilliant rug, with all the relevant colours of the caravan theme, I will up load an image very soon.
2nd bargain of the week this great vintage enamel pot, for just £3! Its really tiny and probably completely impractical but its so pretty, I think it will go well in Bluebell.
The one thing I'm struggling with, (bearing in mind I'm doing this all on a small budget) is sourcing vintage material for the curtains and seats every piece I come across is not big enough for what I need. I think I will have to buy the fabrics new, although the good news is that at the moment time is on my side so I can afford to look out for any remanents that maybe suitable.
The great thing I've discovered is being able to talk with other like minded caravan enthusiasts from across England, who are also embarking on similar ideas, as me. I've found a brilliant blog from a lady called Sharon she does up various caravans and sells them on, its full of lovely photos and advice this is a link to her facebook page where you can follow what she does here.
