This is the first in what I hope will be a series of profiles about mobile vintage shops across the United States. I found Judith & Joe on Instagram and was first interested because their shuttle bus is pretty similar to mine! It’s pretty cool to see how they’ve laid out their mobile shop in a space almost identical to the inside of the Vintanthromobile.
NAME: Judith & Joe
LOCATION: Denver, CO
TYPE OF BUS: 1997 Ford E350 (used to be a shuttle bus for Snowmass in Colorado!)
YEARS IN BIZ: A couple months!
BESTSELLERS: We have this great, long BB Dakota sweater – it’s like a dream – I wear it when I wake up, when I go out, as a robe, as a jacket…It’s been a great seller. Tankfarm makes great men’s tees that are flying out the door, our vinyl records are always popular as well as our bright colored beanies (Colorado is cold)!
DAY JOB/ WHAT YOU WENT TO SCHOOL FOR: I went to school for Journalism & Digital Media and do freelance content and social media. Sara and I met while working in state government which she maintains during the day.
BEST PART OF OWNING A MOBILE SHOP: Freedom! We can take it out when we want and are able. Because of such low overhead, there isn’t a ton of stress to maintain it every. single. day. As it gets warmer though I’m sure we will maintain it every day. 😉 It’s fun!
WORST PART OF OWNING A MOBILE SHOP: It’s cold. Even with the heater, it can be pretty cold. Also…owning a bus can be a trip sometimes.
