You may have noticed that Tipsy Skipper has some new wheels. We're now driving in style in a Chevy Suburban - which is perfect for hauling around our shoes and accessories to trunk shows and events. After all, those Skipper Skimmers, Tipsy Toes, Tipsy Totes and Captain Morgan Clutches take up a lot of space!

Plus, what's better than an American-made Suburban to go along with our American-made products! We're all about the USA here at Tipsy Skipper.

So, obviously, we weren't finished there....

The next step was DESIGN! We are all about prints, patterns and color, so we had to make our mark on the 'burb. That huge truck is like a blank canvas! Originally, we thought of covering the truck entirely with a Tipsy Skipper print, but then we came up with a more subtle design.

We put a nautical twist on pinstripes, and kept our signature navy blue

We found a local company here in RI to help make the vehicle design a reality. Finish Line Signs does all different types of custom decal work and signage. They can do vehicles, boats, etc. We handed them the design, chose our vinyl colors, and a few hours later came back to the shop....

The 'burb was officially Tipsy Skipper-ed! It looks fantastic!

We've been turning heads with our shoes and accessories and now we're grabbing attention on the road. You certainly can't miss us!
