Couple’s stunning renovation of vintage van for hire

A COUPLE that has just moved to Toowoomba has completed a stunning renovation on a vintage van and is offering the Soiree Van for hire at weddings, parties, gatherings or festivals around the region.

Stephen and Amanda Macor found the little vintage bubble in 2018 and it had been stripped on the inside of all its character.

"The only salvageable piece was her black and white upholstered curved bench seat," Mrs Macor said.

"We have only just finished the renovation and it's now ready to go out in the region and become a gorgeous memory at someone's event or backyard shindig.

"I love creating a warm inviting space no matter where we live and this sweet van indulges my whims of beautiful flowers, decor, rugs, linens and cushions.

"We light up the van with fairy and festoon lighting even when we are just having a BBQ with our neighbours.

"Creating a soft warm atmosphere everyday with cool vibes and beautiful objects to satisfy the eye so we can celebrate just being healthy and happy."

Mrs Macor is also a makeup artist and interior designer with 30 years' experience.

She attends the Farmer's Markets on Saturday, selling race wear hats and dresses as well as balloon flowers in celebration of The Carnival of Flowers.

"We are so very excited; this will be my first Weetwood experience and with the new spring date I am looking forward to dressing up to celebrate not only a return to the track but the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers."
