Portland, ME, April 24, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Kate Clark began selling jewelry at festivals and markets in Portland, Boston, Providence, and Newport under a white canopy tent. After seeing the successes of the food trucks, she decided to purchase a vintage travel trailer that she will be converting into a mobile shop.
Food trucks and mobile shops have been slowly gaining popularity. It's just an excellent business model. Mobile shops don't require much capital versus a brick and mortar shop in Portland's Old Port district. It also gives her the freedom of going to her customers instead of waiting for them to come to her.
Currently a project on Kickstarter, she's raising money to fix the water damage inside, replace the original wiring, repair the seams, and a fresh coat of paint. For further information about how you can help, visit: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/970128836/jewelry-vintage-trailer-mobile-shop
A mobile shop definitely creates a one of a kind shopping experience. Many of Kate's items that she sells under the name Shoreside Chic are all locally handmade in Portland, ME or are vintage one of a kind pieces, not something you would typically find in the big box chain stores. Jewelry is unique and is a reflection of the person wearing it. Shoreside Chic's jewelry collections include big, bold statement necklaces as well as the tiny dainty charm necklaces and everything in between. She is also the original designer behind the Maine Beach Sand jewelry collection.
When was the last time you went shopping inside a really cool vintage travel trailer?
