March 2013 my friend, Emily and I drove to meet a gentlemen from Illinois, he was so kind to offer and meet us halfway in Waterloo, Iowa. Site unseen I was so excited as it pulled up cute as the pictures! It is a 1964-70 Arrow, (dart or lance yet to be determine). Previous owners include a Navy Sailor who gave it a forest green & maroon nautical theme with its own port hole door, bell, anchor, along with ancient woods from his travels to England.
Many have asked "What are your plans with the camper?" most would think I am going to go camping of course, which I do plan to do... But the main purpose of this camper is turning it into elk hearts traveling shop! I have been working hard this last year on my creative outsource of turning old or odd treasures into something new. I will be showing at different fairs and events and selling my treasures with the attraction of the camper.
If you'd like to see the transition of the camper turning into the shop you can see it in person this year at many events planned. If you can't make a show keep in touch and like elk heart design on Facebook or become a member of this blog. I will be updating post often as work is being done.
Please let me know if there is something you would like to see or know.
The Arrow campers are rare to find and there are collectors out there with questions.
If you are an Arrow enthusiast please feel free to correct me if I am taking away from
the character or providing incorrect information.
