Blossom launched a little over a year ago, and it has been a year of challenges. This experience continually generates new lessons and experiences, and aside from the initial fear of branching out independently, the growth has pushed any lingering doubt away. Blossom has grown to become so much more than just a mobile vintage shop; it embodies adventure, a creative outlet, and a sense of community. 

After a road safety check at MEL's trailers in Orange, California, it was recommended that Blossom undergo approximately $5000 worth of repairs. These repairs entail working trailer lights, brakes, an equalizer bar, and a working lock and key. To be forward, it's a big chunk of change. Yet, all of these repairs are strictly for safety and do not change any aesthetic appeal of Blossom. 

Every penny from Kickstarter will be going towards the safety of our road trip. 

Over the past year, Blossom has seen community events, pop-ups, flea markets & craft fairs. We hope to continue our journey and fulfill the grand dream of taking Blossom across the country to expand the very definition of community through the USA. 

Each event imparts its own story on Blossom; the people and events that continue to make Blossom possible are the reason it started in the first place. 

With your help, Blossom can continue to become an experience synonymous with creativity, community, and collaboration.

Here is our tentative route: 

  • Ojai, CA
  • San Francisco, CA
  • Denver, CO
  • St. Louis, MO
  • Grand Rapids, MI
  • New York, NY
  • Philadelphia, PA
  • Charlotte, NC
  • Atlanta, GA
  • Nashville, TN
  • Birmingham, AL
  • Oxford, MS
  • Austin, TX
  • Marfa, TX
  • Long Beach, CA

Risks and challenges

We know that we can not be 100% prepared for unforeseen accidents while on the road, however making sure that the trailer is completely safe to be on the road will decrease our chances of bigger accidents and challenges. Furthermore, carrying emergency gas, water, and oil shield against minor car problems.

The friends and communities that Blossom will visit are also meant to keep the trailer and those behind it sane. People will always disagree, but we can always get by with a little help from our friends.
