We'll wrap up our first 30 years of offering up "good stuff, cheap!" to our neighbors and guests on SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 11 at 2:00 PM. As always, we thank those of you that have supported our little home grown business this year and every year since 1986. You're the reason we're here! This fall SOMETHING NEW will be added! BEARCAMP TRADING COMPANY is taking shape right next to the tent; we'll feature many of your favorite tent products plus some seasonal items and some that just wouldn't survive in the tent's warm (and sometimes damp) environment. SO watch for the open sign Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays this fall! As always, stop by and say hi! And yes, the tent goes up once again, May 2017!!!
