When I found out that the Glitter Glamper was going to be setting up glamp on the Minnesota State Fairgrounds this past spring for their Kickoff to Summer, I had to come up with an outdoor checkout stand display. Yes, I already had a heavy duty retail cashwrap tucked away in my storage trailer, butContinue reading “Festival Setup: Building a Vintage Cooler Checkout Stand”

How to Re-Web a Vintage Lawn Chair
I LOVE to buy old, vintage things, and return them to their original glory…especially vintage camping related things that are full of a history of memories! Nothing says relaxation like lounging by a vintage trailer in an equally vintage aluminum lawn chair, and I definitely have a soft spot for these retro beauties. In factContinue reading “How to Re-Web a Vintage Lawn Chair”
MN State Fair Booth Tour
Last summer I took some video clips with the intention of making a video to share with my fellow face and body painters! Everyone loves to see other artists’ fair booths, myself included! We all learn so much from sharing with each other! Well, I finally got around to piecing together those clips into aContinue reading “MN State Fair Booth Tour”

2021 MN State Fair
The “Great Minnesota Get-Back-Together” was awesome! Sure, we had a pretty rainy first weekend, and yes, post-pandemic attendance was down over 40% this year with the fair overall. But despite these challenges, the Glitter Glamper’s business only dropped 13% from 2019! Now, mind you, it feels wrong to even compare this record low post-pandemic yearContinue reading “2021 MN State Fair”
The Glamper’s First Gig!
Wow, I just realized that while I share things on Facebook, I haven’t posted in my blog since May! Part of that has just been how crazy busy it’s been this summer! I spent most of June working on finishing touches to the Glamper, in preparation for her first event on July 4th! I’ll goContinue reading “The Glamper’s First Gig!”
New Floor for the Glamper!
I’m SO very excited to have finally installed my new, sparkly floor in the Glitter Glamper! Just acquiring the tiles was a multi-month process of searching and ordering samples. I almost settled for one that was “kindof” glittery, with mica flecks in it…but then I finally found one that I LOVED, but they were manufacturedContinue reading “New Floor for the Glamper!”
