Winter Months for the Accessory Insanity Fashion Truck

Thank you all for a fantastic Spring/Summer/Fall season with the Fashion Truck. I experienced great success, an abundance of enthusiasm & compliments regarding the idea & products and much confidence for future endeavours.

With the cold weather FAST approaching and forecasts of potential flurries already ... The Accessory Insanity Fashion Truck must say "good bye" for the winter. She will be in hibernation now until the Spring. Lucky for her, she joins a number of trailers and RVs in a cozy covered barn to sleep through the nasty winter. Until she awakens from her deep slumber in the Spring ...

See you all next year!!
