Remember this beaut? Kim Hayes’ gorgeous 1965 Airstream Safari is coming back to SPACE this Friday for a Valentine’s Day pop-up shop to help you find a special gift for that special someone. The Kabine (pronounced kah-been-uh) lived in our lot for a few months last spring while we outfitted her interior with new cabinetry to showcase Kim’s curated collection of paper, textile and found objects. “Kabine” is a German word that means “cabin,” and Kim uses her little cabin on wheels as a mobile studio and gallery.
“I want the Kabine to have Gemütlichkeit, a word Germans use to describe a space that is cozy and inspires cheerful serenity, whether the Kabine is open as a Shop, Studio or Celebration,” Kim said of her snug little trailer, which will be parked in our front lot and ready to welcome guests from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Friday’s pop-up will focus on the element of paper, featuring postcards, paper, and a typewriting station. Kim will be bringing special Valentine’s Day stationery, and The Kabine will deliver your handmade card to the post office for you. Enjoy fruit water, and a comfortable spot to relax among the shopping. Kim’s going to light a fire burner on the lot, so you’ll be warm and full of Gemütlichkeit inside and outside the beautiful Kabine.
