Great to see so many new and old customers coming into the shop. Summer is always busy in Bandon, OR. It’s Xmas in July at the Gypsy Wagon! That’s when we get our big shipment in from India. As always we have the BEST prices on the most exotic goods in Oregon. Come in and feast your eyes! The shelves are just bursting at the seams:
As always things can be shipped to you if you can’t make it into the store. Let me know what you’re looking for or what colors you’re interested in and I’ll take photos for you. firstname.lastname@example.org Examples of new goodies:

Exclusive!! 100% silk kimonos made from recycled half sarees. Created by me with the help of Lani from Patina (the shop next door to mine). These are all exquisite and hang beautifully because of the excellent quality of the old silk from India. Can be worn as a kimono or a scarf! Each one is a steal at only $36. Get one quick before they’re gone!

I carry a wide range of wall hangings, pillow cases & table runners all made from antique textiles from India. The textiles get cut up, hand quilted together and then over-dyed. Each one is an individual work of art. No two are alike. Feel free to request colors. Here’s a very small sampling of what I got:

If it’s been a while since you’ve been in the shop there’s lots of new goodies. Scroll this page to see lots of new stuff. My photos really don’t do these items justice. If you’re local here in Bandon or planning on coming to town, now would be a good time to see how beautiful these things are. The old Wagon is bursting at the seams. To my friends who are out of town, I will ship to you. Many of the things listed here come in different colors. Write me at email@example.com to ask for certain colors. I will photograph stuff so you can see it. I take paypal.
I also have many different pillow cases that are made with the antique textiles from India. They come in big (26″x 26″) & med. (16″x16″) sizes. Watch this blog for updates and more photos! If you can’t make it into the shop, let me know what you’re looking for, what color, what type of wall space you’re trying to fill, the more info the better. Scroll the entire page to continue seeing all the new goodies.
Every now and then I have to break down and buy some unbelievably rare goodies for the shop. This is my favorite stuff. The reason for having a store specializing in tribal treasures. Write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org for bigger photos and ordering information.
Probably From Saurashtra Gujarat, India. Early 20th Century Hand-embroidered silk on cotton, wedding canopy. Bride and mother work on these for months to prepare for the wedding:
The Gypsy Wagon has one of the best collections of these hand embroidered wedding canopies in America. This one has lots of mirrors. I love all the details in this work of art:
This is one of the most visually stunning Wedding Canopies we’ve ever had in the store. This thing is breathtaking:
