The Gerbera Van was established in 2001 By Jean, Matt and a couple of friends who has since moved into other business ventures.
We started by making and selling wedding car decorations. Our wedding car decorations were the envy of everyone who saw them but it soon became apparent that the demand was far greater than we could comfortably supply.
We toyed with the idea of having our designs mass produced but that didn’t sit well with us so instead, we reined it in and just kept a few customers who had become regulars.
One of those customers was using our decorations on her amazing pink VW Splitty called Nellie. Through our many meetings with Nellie we soon fell in love with her and the scene she belonged to……….
I guess you can see the link now. It wasn’t too long before we started supplying Flowers, Leis, Garlands, air-fresheners, hula hula girls and many other funky things to the very wide and diverse VW community.
The rest is lost in the mists of time but suffice to say, we are currently the number one seller of these things on eBay, and have a passionate following at VW Shows across the country.
in 2017 we attended over 30 VW shows from Cornwall, through Wales and up to the Far North of England. We haven`t reached Scotland yet but are certainly open to invitations
