Since having kids I have been more and more interested in how I can make money from staying at home. I only work part time teaching now. I have set up my Etsy shop and run my blog which generates a small income. However it isn’t enough to stay permanently at home and hubby and I decided we would like to do something together. So Vintage Lens Hire was born and we are embarking on the journey of restoring and running a Vintage caravan photo booth.
This is something we have talked about for a while so with £400 in hand we bid on many, many caravans on Ebay. Missing out on so many of them at the last minute. Until we won Betty, who happily ended up being just down the road.
She is a Vintage 1960’s Bailey Caravan. What we loved about her was the wide windows at the front and back. Which allow lots of natural light in, making it great for photos. She also has a spilt style barn door and lovely retro shaping to the roof.
A sorry state.
I’m not one to gloss over the truth of the matter. You get what you pay for. She is very old and very tired. But not without merits and will look great when she is restored. So she’s gone off to have all the rotten wood replaced inside and have a new paint job outside. Then she’ll be returning to us so we can decorate her ready to be up and running for Easter 2018.
