    I have a question for those going! Is there anyone who could look for Dansko half-chaps for me? They were on TotD several months ago, which makes me think BoB might have some stock still...

    I wish I could go, but it's so far away Will it be online as well, or will I have to bribe a COTHer into shopping for me?

    I'm assuming you have to actually go to the sale....
    I've been getting tons of e-mails about it, but since I'm not close, I doubt I'll make it Are they just taunting me, or will they take phone/internet orders?
    Y'all ain't right!

    Okay, perhaps a silly question, but where is it being held? I'd like to check it out.

    best tent sale ever. everything is cheap and on sale. as much as I want to go please see the "Economy Sucks..." thread...I MUST NOT BUY THINGS I DO NOT REALLY REALLY REALLY NEED. I MUST NOT BUY THINGS I DO NOT REALLY REALLY REALLY NEED. I need to keep repeating that so I don't get in the car and drive there tomorrow Man I hate trying to be responsible....


    VAHorsegurl...their address is on their website...and I am almost positive that sale is only at the store and not online...although they do have a "tent sale" spot on their site.

    Thanks toeknee & ShowMeTheGlory for that information. I guess all I really have to do is google this place and I'll find their website?

    Oh, and toeknee, if you want to carpool and you are anywhere between me and Oxford, I'm game for a traveling buddy. We don't have to buy anything we really really really don't need.

    Sure, let me first verify I will actually be in that area and I may have to skip out on the PA Rennaissance Faire.

    I'm not expecting to go. No money & too much junk already. I assure you that in past years, Ali & I, all by our little selves, made the sale a success for John Nunn. I bet his sale totals drop any year we aren't there.

    Well, whoever ends up going, I'm serious. I'm in dire need of some cheap stuff. Please send me a PM if you're willing to keep your eyes open for some stuff. I'm happy to send you a check or paypal, whichever. Drat, why do we live in Florida again?

    I don't recall it being that great. I certainly wouldn't drive 2 hrs. I probably won't drive 20 min. But who knows, I might (although I can't think of anything I really need).

    Toeknee, thanks for correcting the date for me--I was working without a script....
