We sold out sweet little Scotty in October. She was our first vintage can and it was hard to let her go, but we went right out a purchased one twice the length that had a bathroom. Our 1950 Star is a rare one and full of 'potential'! Some work required but we are looking forward to making her 'ours'. She will reside in SO CA this winter and maybe make the trek back to NC in the Spring, but we aren't sure yet. We may just find one for the East Coast and leave the Star in CA. It would only take a few trips to pay for a second trailer with gas prices as they are!

I am researching vintage fabric and have found a couple of good sites, but so far I have not found a fabric that really WOWS me.  Any suggestions on good sites OR places to go to purchase fabric for curtains and/or upholstery in the SOCA area?  We are about 20 mins North of San Diego.
