I co-owned a store in Historical Downtown Oakland named 8LETTERS in early 2000. We were approached by Joie de Vivre Hospitality to participate in their “Designer Tent Series” at Costanoa Coastal Lodge & Camp. We chose a “vintage eclectic” theme titled, Vintage Camping Cabin. Our tent was chock full of fun details to make you feel like you were a kid again, but this time camping without your parents and their Scrabble board. Our vintage camping lounge included a record player with vinyl 45s chosen by Tommy Guerrero, red plaid and homemade blankets, vintage curtains, Melmac plastic and Thermos brand camping essentials.
