Ooooh! I'm familiar with the tent in question. $450 is a steal. Somebody
who needs a pavilion go get that or you will regret it later.

[mumble grumble] I just bought 50 yards of canvas, 12' of 2x2 oak, and
arranged to use an industrial sewing machine, or I would be thinking real
hard about "$500 and I'll pick it up from you at Pennsic".
