Bertha, the Colour-in Caravan. From Rags to Riches!  She was found on Ebay, abandoned and rather tatty, looking decidedly sorry for herself – but within six weeks she was premiering on ITV’s This Morning!

Eggnogg had been toying with the idea of creating a life size Eggnogg Colour-in Caravan, both as our flagship and to hire out for children’s parties and other special events.  A casual browse on Ebay, followed by a flurry of last minute auction bids and Bertha was suddenly ours.

She needed a lot of work inside and out, as sadly years of neglect had taken their toll, but we could see her potential and so worked day and night to bring her back to her former glory. She was stripped, sanded, cleaned, scrubbed, reclad, painted, sealed and finally vinyl wrapped with our favourite Eggnogg colour-in designs.  Finally after much of blood, sweat and tears, Bertha was re-born as the beautiful, cute, Eggnogg Colour-in Caravan you see today.  Her interior walls are papered with our colour-in wallpaper, she has colour-in curtains hung at her windows, colour-in fabric upholstery and a colour-in paper tablecloth on the table. She can be hired complete with a picket fence, a really cute small picnic table, picnic blanket, replacement tablecloths and plenty of our special colour-in pens

Almost immediately, she was snapped up to feature in ITV’s This Morning with Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield. From rags to riches in only six weeks!  And now Bertha is being booked for everything from Trade and Retail Fairs to children’s’ parties and Summer festivals all over the country.

It just goes to show that if you’re passionate about something you must go for it, whether in your personal life or in business.  It can really can pay off. Do something you love, be determined and never give up!
