Rolling Runway Exterior

The Rolling Runway is the brainchild of entrepreneurs Morgan Schubert & Kendall Turnipseed. With an idea that began in a college course, Schubert and Turnispeed combined their love of fashion and the open road with a strategy to minimize the overhead of a brick and mortar store. What was born is a truly unique retail venture: a 1963 Airstream trailer renovated into a mobile boutique. When we caught a glimpse of the gorgeous white tin ceiling in Silvia, the name of Schubert and Turnipseed’s Airstream, we had to learn more...

1. How long have you operated The Rolling Runway?

The renovations of our 1963 Airstream lasted about 8 months, and we had our grand opening August 2, 2015 when we officially opened for business. We are doing a few more events in Athens this month and then hope to start traveling outside of Athens!

2. How did you get the idea to transform an Airstream into a mobile boutique?

The idea stemmed from a class I (Morgan) took my junior year of college where we sold student made merchandise from a mobile boutique operating out of a golfcart called “Couture a la Cart.” When I worked with Kendall (my business partner) in college, we talked about owning our own mobile women’s store since we knew it would cost less than an actual brick & mortar store. Once we researched mobile trailers, we decided we liked Airstreams the best and they have a huge following.

3. Where did you hear about American Tin Ceilings? What prompted the great idea to renovate with tin panels?

We heard of American Tin Ceilings from Google. We found an Airstream online where someone used white tiles on the walls and we wanted the same look for our mobile boutique. After researching, we found out they were tiles and around $20 a piece at Home Depot/Lowes. We determined ...

Retail Spotlight: Polpo

Nov 25, 2013 5:03:24 PM

Polpo is a family of six restaurants in central London. But this is not your average mom and pop diner. Polpo is a bàcaro, a Venetian word describing a humble restaurant serving small plates and young local wines. A Michelin Guide Bib Gourmand winner 3 years running, it has often been described as the “Hottest Table in Town.” An interesting building from the get-go, the first Polpo space in Soho was once home to the Venetian painter Canaletto. Described as “scruffy, earthy and cool,” owner Rus...
