You know the old question, what would you do for a living if making decent money wasn’t an issue? As in, what do you REALLY want to do for a living? Well I’ve thought about this many times and the answer changes, depending. I like change and I can’t see myself doing any one thing forever. But I do know that it has to be creative in some way…but that’s casting a pretty wide net. Which I think is good.
One of my dream options is to be a vintage picker. You know, one of those uber cool people who goes hunting for vintage treasure amongst piles of junk. I seem to have an eye for it…or so people say. I also love to travel. Well put those two things together and what do you get? A traveling vintage shop!! Hello!!
This isn’t just a pipe dream for a some folks. Check out these people who are living the dream. They’ve built their vintage shops on four wheels and taken it on the road. What a great way to fund a travel adventure! Major envy going on over here…
