If you haven't yet spotted the blue bus at local events and festivals, or been able to browse her amazing collection of vintage goods – June 29th is your chance! Robyn will have her bus on sight for shopping, and is generously donating a Gift Certificate to heART schools fundraiser – so one lucky person gets to both donate to our cause, as well as take home something truly fabulous from Perch!

“Salutations! My name is Robyn, and I have been a vintage junkie since high school. I have witnessed, firsthand, the transformation of the vintage shop from the days of the stinky, poorly lit, one room concrete hole in the wall to the stylish, polished boutique of today. I am pleased to be part of the very newest trend in the evolution of the vintage shop- the mobile retail store. My shop, Perch Travelling Boutique, is a member of a very cool group of unique and innovative businesses that have decided to break the mold and try something completely new. Perch Travelling Boutique is located inside a renovated school bus, so we can travel to events, shows and even to your front door!
For now, I am happy to operate my shop at events, festivals and markets throughout the Okanagan. But, like any dreamer, I have big plans for my little shop, and hopefully next season she will be seen by all the movers and shakers right in the heart of downtown Kelowna. Follow Perch on Twitter to find out where and when the shop will be open for business. Don't forget to check out Perch's Facebook page, where you can find the latest updates about the events we're a part of, or comment on my latest vintage treasures. You can always drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a private 'shop the bus' get together.”
I'm constantly blown away by the creative people and businesses that are here in the Okanagan. Robyn at Perch Travelling Boutique is a prime example of this. Our hope with this new space we have is to be a space for these creative types to work and grow together, as individuals, businesses, and truly embed a creative community in Kelowna's downtown core! How lucky are we to have Robyn as an integral part of this. So thrilled!
