The Gypsy Wagon is the creation of Suzie Kerr Wright and built by Bobby Williams. Bobby, a talented woodworker/homebuilder, completely understood the vision Suzie had for this rather unusual task and his creativity and skill in homebuilding was invaluable. Suzie’s husband, David, pitched in between work travels and in May, the magical gypsy wagon was born!
The Gypsy Wagon pays homage to the colorful, music and dancing, fortune telling Gypsy of 60s television. “When I was a child I remember all my favorite TV shows had episodes with Gypsies. I was fascinated by their colorful clothing, sense of wanderlust and their mysterious traditions. Although they were generally portrayed as conniving buffoons who always got caught in some kind of silly scam, I still thought they were cool. My favorite Halloween costume as a kid was a gypsy.” In truth, the real Gypsies were far different than the way they were portrayed in The Monkees, Andy Griffith, Partridge Family and other shows I watched as a youngster. As I grew up, the fascination didn’t stop, and has grown into compassion and understanding of their often tumultuous lives and struggles. But one thing seems prevalent throughout their stories of hardship-they were family and always stuck together. Their resilience was amazing. And in their travels they created forms of music and dance that still intrigue us.” Your Gypsy Wagon was created to bring that sense of wonder and joy Suzie experienced in her younger years watching the Gypsy antics on TV.
“I am a professional Astrologer and Tarot reader and Reiki Master/Teacher and Life Coach with over 25 years of experience. I am grateful that I am able to help anyone who is in any situation with my experience.” Suzie found she needed to find a way to express her creative side separately from her daily work, and have an opportunity to do readings in a lighter environment. She is also a singer, dancer and drummer. “Your Gypsy Wagon is something that combines the things I do best- Astrology and Tarot- and just pure childish fun.”
The readings guests of the Gypsy Wagon receive are the same quality of accuracy and insight of Suzie’s more formal consultations. Stop by Your Gypsy Wagon for a reading or just to check it out and enjoy the music and whimsical vibe combined with just a little mystery. Suzie promises-no silly scams in this Gypsy Wagon…
