I know it could not have been easy to orient yourselves to the layout, etc. for the first time, but I have heard nothing by complement from or staff about The Tent Merchant! We had our wrap-up meeting this month, and sandy gave a complete run down of all aspects of set up, etc. It has always been a pleasure to work with you folks!"
