TINY Sightings: Gypsy Wagons in Port Townsend, Washington.

Recently, I had the good fortune to attended the Port Townsend Film Festival in Port Townsend, Washington. Merete was working in Europe, so I went alone. The staff of the festival had a bit of a sense of humor and assumed (quite rightly) that I would enjoy being put up with a family that had converted one of their chicken coops into a guest cottage.

The hosts were a lovely family, of which the patriarch has enjoyed a long career as an architect. He generously offered to take me by an old friend of his who was a woodworker and craftsman who specialized in Gypsy wagons. These two Gypsy were on his property, and they were beautifully wrought from several different types of wood. The older of the two was near 30 years old. The newer was being updated for a writing a cottage.

For those interested in contacting the woodworker directly, you can email him at jadynerae@gmail.com.
