Thank you to those of you who were close enough and made the effort to show up for our garage sale. Like any garage sale, there were quite a number of people who were waiting for us to open first thing in the morning on the first day. The less expensive parts went very fast. On new items which we could use in future projects we, of course, kept the prices above wholesale but well under retail. Our purpose in holding the sale was to clear out the hundreds of take-off and overstock items or materials we no longer use in our products which we have collected over the past year or so, get them into the hands of people who need and appreciate them and keep them out of the landfill. All items from the sale are now gone or, in the case of new items, back in stock.

Unfortunately, there have been a couple of rumors circulating that we are going out of business. Like any good rumor, these started with a factual event such as the sale. To quote Mark Twain... "The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated".

While we, like nearly every other business in the world, have seen our business decrease slightly from the record levels of the previous years and have made strategic moves to ensure our continued success. In that light we adjusted our staffing levels to reflect the current level of business. We have also elected not to renew the lease on the building where the sale was held and to conduct our operations solely out of the adjacent 10,000 SF building which we own. We had initially leased the sale space for the build-out of a new custom Airstream for which we had a confidentiality agreement with the owner. By locating the project in a separate space we were able to conduct tours of our main building without worry that our agreement would be breached…sort of our own “Skunk Works". These unfortunate rumors are believed to have been started or at least helped along by a would-be competitor. Any assistance in quelling these unfounded reports would be greatly appreciated.
