ready for all kinds of weather...

So I've been sussing out pop-up canopy tents for the past month or two...trying to decide what kind I want to buy.  I want a white one for various summer shows...white is best as it allows lots of daylight on the paintings. 
When we were in Florida last week I saw one at Home Depot at $100 less than what Home Depot in Canada was selling the EXACT same one for.  I dont get that. It doesn't seem fair at all.  I was going to buy it and bring it home but didn't want to be encumbered with lugging it through the airport.  
While in Costco this morning guess what I came across?!  A fabulous pop-up canopy tent for a reasonable price too. It's a Caravan brand, which is a good one. I was smitten.  When I got home, I talked to Dave on the phone and told him of my discovery.  I planned to go back next week and get one, but when he arrived home from work today guess what he was carrying in the door?! surprise!  We set it up in the driveway just to be sure of how quickly and easily it would go up, and it's a breeze! I'm so delighted.
