Selling everything & travelling across Australia in my caravan



Travelling the country with nothing to worry about but the belongings on your back, could seem like a long shot, with bills, and a house full of belongings to look after.
Not for Kara Rosenlund our resident Brisbane born Gummie, who decided to waste no time after deciding to buy a 1956 caravan off Gumtree. This new purchase led her to start a business Travelling wares. Kara now travels across Australia and roams the countryside to sell vintage home pieces off the back of her 1956 caravan.

Kara’s favourite places visited during her travels include:

  1. The east coast of Tasmania
  2. Daylesford, Victoria
  3. The Flinders Ranges, South Australia

You can find Kara selling utilitarian vintage pieces at the next Vielle Branche Autumn Market Day.
