    That is different. I suppose it would be a great investment for some of the vendors that travel to quilt shows.

    Wow have never seen anything like this. But for the avid quilt shop that travels the shows on a regular basis, could be a gold mine.

    Wow - that is quite a concept! And for those traveling to shows it would be a nice star up maybe for someone. Wonder what they are asking for it.

    Neat idea! A couple of years ago, a couple came through here with a bus loaded with quilting fabrics and notions. They had just started their business. We have quilt shows here in the winter, so maybe I'll see them again.

    I was thinking for more rural areas, like where I live. I takes 1/2 hr to get to a store. This would be nice to set up in a parking lot once a week and travel to different small town around the area. different area each day.
    Blessed are the quilters, for they are the piecemakers.

    The closest thing we had was a " General Store" that was a bus. He used to carry a few bolts and notions at the back of the bus. Another guy brings a bus load up from the coast and sets up in the church hall twice a year - so that is good too. It's good to see these innovative people. When I lived in Yorkshire, England, there was a mobile cafe which was good.

    I wonder if the fabric is stored in that trailer. If so, it could be musty or even worse. Strange idea for fabric storage...

    I remember someone posting about a trail they had as a sewing room that got stolen out of their driveway with everything in it. The poor women was so heart broken over it. I think it was posted over a year ago. Makes you sort of wander just how many people really do this sort of thing, is it that safe to have or if this is the one that got stolen?

    Wow! Never seen anything like that before! I would be a booming business to travel to small towns, where folks have to travel a distance to purchase....
