The Caraven (or the Vanerari)
Way back in May 2007, Genevieve bought for Kingsley on his birthday a derelict 1941 caravan (she thought he’d like the radio). In return, Kingsley bought Genevieve a race-car for her birthday a month later (but that’s another story). After three-and-a-half years of careful restoration, “The Glen” was delivered to Venerari earlier this year. It is one of only a few 1940s vans standing in Australia. It had, during its restoration, a cult following, indeed its own blog! It will be lovingly used as the mobile Venerari showroom at wedding fairs, and as a safe haven in the wilds of west Queensland’s gemfields when we are on buying trips. We’ll let you know when its next out and you can come to see us!
