Catalog, Vaughn’s Parade Ideas, 1976
Vaughn’s “float system” brought a do-it-yourself attitude to the community-based tasks of float construction. The customer chose a design from the catalog, carefully matching it to the vehicle upon which it was to be built. By return mail the customer received a blueprint for the float’s wooden framework and enough floral sheeting to cover it. The only things not supplied were labor, lumber, and the vehicle itself.
