Georgetown Trailer Park Mall


Customers browse through Clyde and Son Salvage shop at the Georgetown Trailer Park Mall, Saturday, April 14, 2012 in Seattle's Georgetown neighborhood. The market, held inside eight vintage travel trailers, sells everything from clothing to indie designs to vintage camping gear to locally-made art to mantiques (antiques that appeal to men) almost every Saturday of the year. For more photos, visit the gallery.

Bruce and Shannon Andersen, owners of the trailer gallery Frida, launched the first trailer business during 2010, at 947 Doris Street, where the market is held today. They owned art fabrication studio on Airport Way S and asked their landlord to rent some space in the back lot.

"That was the birth of it," said Bruce Andersen.

Out of a 16-foot Shasta trailer, Nate and Mardi Hamilton sell barware, velvet art and vintage concert t-shirts out of their business, Clyde and Son Salvage shop. "It's a shop for big boys to buy their toys," said Nate Hamilton. "You can find vintage-style, bric-a-brac to fill in the spots of your man cave."
