Allison first spotted "Bailey", the 1965 Airstream Land Yacth, while driving through Llano in the spring of 2013. Abandon on a vacant property, Allison tracked down the land owner who offered to sell it for $200.
The transformation into The Airstream Boutique took a lot of vision, love, Home Depot runs, and elbow grease. The summerlong Daddy/Daughter project with father David Schwabe, a Wimberley contractor, resulted in total overhaul.
The Airstream Boutique opened its door in August 2013, in Ladybird Lake in Austin, alongside some of the city's best food trailers. In December 2013, tens of thousands of people experienced The Airstream Boutique during the two-week Trail of Lights, Austin's premiere holiday event.
Ready to go on the road again, look for The Airstream Boutique at Fredricksburg Trade Days, Wimberley Market Days, Round Top Antique Festival, and other shows in 2014.
