Tent sale

My mom and I headed out to the W.S. Badger tent sale in Gilsum yesterday. It’s an annual event, but it was our first time. (You could tell that some folks were long-timers; they knew exactly where the deals were.) We arrived right at 9 a.m. and stocked up on lip balms, sore muscle rubs, creams and lotions. The company has been in Gilsum since its inception in 1995, and is growing by leaps and bounds. (That’s because their products are really good.) They’ve used certified organic ingredients for years, but recently a few of their products have been certified organic. In fact, as of August 2008, over 90 percent of Badger’s products will be 99 to 100 percent USDA Certified Organic. With a child with allergies and eczema, I have to say thanks, Badger Bill!
