Festival Setup: Building a Vintage Cooler Checkout Stand

About Me

Hi, I’m Gretchen! I’ve been a professional face & body painter for over 25 years. More recently I magically merged my love for body art, bling, camping and retro style into one awesome endeavor, applied my background in retail/industrial design, and the “Glitter Glamper” was born! Thanks to my talented team of artist friends, the Glitter Glamper concept was proven during my first year as a vendor at the Minnesota State Fair in 2019. It has since evolved and grown into a real, physical trailer that can “Bring the Bling” to your event around Minneapolis/St.Paul Minnesota and surrounding suburbs! I hope to see you in person sometime soon, whether it’s at the fair or another unforgettable event in the Twin Cities!
