What kind of vehicle should we buy for our vintage clothing business?

A friend and I run a small-but-growing online vintage clothing business. We've recently branched out into showing at vintage truck shows in the Chicago area. As of now, we've been using a friend's Saab hatchback. Unfortunately, this isn't a really a sustainable option for us; it's also a bit of a tight fit for our 200ish garments, 2 - 3 clothing racks, bust, and table. We're interesting in purchasing a used vehicle so that we can continue to travel with our merchandise. Ideally, we'd like something that is reliable, safe, and has some extra space to grow alongside our business. Unfortunately, our budget is on the low side: we'd like to spend less than $5000... the cheaper the better. Thoughts? Recommendations? Should we rent instead of buy? Thanks for sharing your wisdom!

Flea market on Perry Street?

Each of the past two springs (May? June?), my girlfriend has stumbled across a flea market / street fair in Manhattan on Perry St. near Bleeker. It doesn't seem to be there every week (at least the times we've walked by), and we can't find any reference to it anywhere online. Any fellow NYC vintage-shopping folks know what she's thinking of, and when/if it might reappear?

Vintage Clothing Needed, Stat!

I need to find good thrift stores (or just not expensive stores) in Atlanta that sell late fifties to early sixties clothing (vintage or restyled, as long as the restyling isn't too weird). [more inside]
