Five years ago I bought a little Aussie Teardrop trailer and travelled the east coast of Australia exhibiting at caravan and camping shows with a range of kitchenware I called at the time ‘Roaming Cooking’. I have since sold that business and started another, this one, Just Smart Kitchenware. This year I was planning on spending 6 months in the UK exhibiting at motorhome and caravan shows. I was there from mid Feb and attended the big Motorhome & Caravan show in Birmingham, doing research and preparing for the 6 months ahead – and then Covid hit. Mid March I was back home in Australia.
My original plan was to continue exhibiting at caravan shows in Australia when I returned from Europe in September (I was planning to go to the massive caravan show in Germany too). I haven’t exhibited at the shows in Australia for a few years and am ready to launch some new good quality collapsible kitchenware. I am based in South Australia and over the past few months, as everywhere, the shows were being cancelled – except some regional shows in Queensland! So what did I do? I bought a little caravan of course so I could travel and attend them 😊
So meet my new little van! It is three years old and is called a Euro Sunseeker (now known as a Euro Hobby). I love it! After living in the Teardrop for a year, I feel so spoilt having a little kitchenette (including a fridge!) and being able to stand in it and have room to change – oh the luxury. It also has a little porta potty so I don’t need to tramp to the toilet block in the middle of the night! I drove from SA to Queensland last week and picked it up from the previous owners in Maroochydore a few days ago. I then decided to stay in the caravan park in Maroochydore for a week so I could get used to it, so haven’t really driven anywhere with it yet.
The next stop is the Fraser Coast Expo at Maryborough Showgrounds from 14th – 16th August where I will be exhibiting my new (not yet released) kitchenware. Then I will head up to the Rockhampton show from 21 – 23rd August. If you are thinking of attending either of these events, the organisers have given me a unique discount code ‘JSKITCHEN’ you can use to receive 30% of the entry fee (tickets to the shows need to be bought online due to covid. See Fraser Coast Show link & Rockhampton Show Link and don’t forget to use your code!).
I turned 50 earlier in the year and what better way to spend part of my 50th year than travelling around in my little van working on the business which I love doing, using my kitchenware and testing new samples so I can bring only the best & most practical, space-saving kitchenware to you 😊
