Tent Sale Starts Thursday!

Rural Intelligence Home and Garden
Every year, on Columbus Day weekend, the Pine Cone Hill Tent Sale, as close to a Marrakesh market as anything one is likely to encounter in these parts, draws thousands of shoppers spoiling for a steal.  At the sale, Whit Selke (above right), co-owner with his wife Annie, reigns as the Grand Poobah of Bargains.  So when you hear a fellow-shopper coo,  “Oh, Whit gave me such a special price,” think, lucky us.
