Re: [sig] Rom Varda's and Period Caravan wagons
- Somewhere on the web is a site, I'll try to find it later, about one couples
venture into building a gypsy vardo that slide had the top section slide
down for travel to and from events. Offhand I think vardos are 18th century
but I am not certain. I'll try to remember to ask over on the gypsy list I'm
on about books for researching a vardo.
Sorry I couldn't be more help right now. Congrats on being done with school.

- I know the drawings of Jacque Callot show wagons. I believe the lovely
vardos that we see pictures of are not period. I would still love to have
one anyway and yours will definately dress up an event!! Good luck!!
