When Sister on the Fly Nancy Lucier found her 1967 Scotsman trailer she was lucky to be nearby and able to scoop her up for $350. The owner who placed the Craigslist ad had many inquiries but Nancy and her husband responded quickly and took home the prize! There is one thing that is for sure about vintage trailer hunting – you snooze, you lose! If you have been searching for a while you know this!
When they brought the trailer they call “Rosie” home she had a bad spot on the roof that Richard repaired.
The old ice box was taken out and replaced with a new electric one.
The cheery kitchen with its 1950’s kitchen collectibles makes a welcoming statement as you enter the door opposite it.
Perfect compliments to a vintage kitchen.
Nancy got to work painting the interior and recovering old cushions. A thorough scrubbing and new curtains, beadboard and vintage finds made the old trailer feel like home.
When Nancy and Richard are on the hunt for items for their Brimfield booth they are also keeping an eye for just the thing that they might need for their trailer.
The original avocado floor and stove make the perfect compliment to their red treasures.
To the left of the door is a full bed that Nancy and Richards grandchildren nap on while visiting them at the Brimfield Antiques Fair.
No detail is overlooked in their labor of Rosie love. Every find is a match for the era of their trailer and the perfect color. The enamel kitchen cart and folding stools make a welcome statement.
Nancy enjoying a breeze at the Country Living Fair in Rhinebeck NY where her “Rosie” was a big hit with fair goers.
I love Nancy’s use of vintage aprons as curtains on “Rosie’s” door.
Richard made a picket fence to cover the tongue jack and they decorate it with flowers and a vintage lantern when showing it at fairs and vintage trailer shows.
If you stop by and the Lucier’s aren’t home, just leave a note!
Rosie is the beautiful backdrop to Nancy and her husbands booth at the Brimfield Antiques show. Their booth, The Good Home, is full of all the things that I love! It is located on Quaker Acres and can be found by using the Brimfield App which is a free download for fair goers. Their first show of the season is May 10-15.
