After Years of Online Success With Pro-Trailer Park Merchandise, the Original Trailer Park Queen Feels Pressure to Leave the Trailer Park For New Subdivision

Jolene Sugarbaker, self-proclaimed Trailer Park Queen, the first to promote a “pro-trailer park and white trash” message online, and owner of popular website “Jolene’s Trailer Park” ( announced today a continued commitment to her trailer park lifestyle. After nearly six years of success with online retailer selling her art, opinions, and designs on unique merchandise she began to feel the pressure of her family and friends to move into a local subdivision. Today’s announcement puts rest to rumors of relocation.

“I cemented my mission of undoing the years of damage done to the trailer park lifestyle far before the movement we see in today’s mainstream fashion and entertainment,” explains Sugarbaker. “Far before ‘Rednecks of Comedy’ and way before ‘My Name is Earl’ I was pushing to bring ‘trailer park’ back into style. Looks like my efforts have paid off; my site is doing great and I see everyone from celebrities to socialites embracing the look. With things going so well, how could I ever leave the park – I can’t become a sellout!”

Sugarbaker first entered into the world of t-shirt printing in the early 90’s in an effort to bring her “White Trash With Class” and “Pro Trailer Park” message to the masses. Her ideas and art caught on, and today she is often referred to as “The Trailer Park Queen.”

“In early 2000 I heard about CafePress and realized very quickly I could get rid of my screen printing set up, and put the production of my products into someone else’s hands,” she explains. “Screen printing is a mess and it’s really tough to turn a profit.” CafePress offered Sugarbaker the perfect online business solution, and matched all of her requirements. CafePress is an online Marketplace, which enables users to create and sell their ideas, art, and designs on a wide variety of merchandise. Through unique on-demand printing technology, CafePress Shopkeepers carry no inventory; merchandise is printed as it’s ordered. Additionally, CafePress handles order fulfillment, shipping, customer service, and the Shopkeeper collects a commission check for each sale.

Sugarbaker explains, “Orders keep rolling in, and between this and standup comedy I do very well. In the 6 years that I have been in business using, all orders have been handled flawlessly. No customer complaints at all! Things are always handled in an efficient manner, and the products are top notch. Here I am, with my Trailer Park Store, able to offer a 30-day money back guarantee, a live phone operator to take orders, and assistance in case anything should happen. It allows me to still be the inventor while the messy business side is taken care of by CafePress.”

With the final decision to remain true to the trailer park lifestyle behind her, Sugarbaker plans to continue to spread the “pro-trailer park” message. Her next steps are sure to further the movement to children with a unique trailer park coloring book, and reach into America’s kitchen’s with her first ever cookbook.
