Light Dome tent, and side walls $400

I have a used Light Dome tent with side walls, and interior partition.  I've used it a couple times, but it is a bit too beefy for me.  I have pretty badly damaged hands and wrists.  It's a fabulous tent, the top is aged (I bought it used from an art fair person), but doesn't leak water.  I had it up in a show when a pretty torrential wind/rain storm blew through.  It stood firm and dry!  I don't get on this website often, so your best bet is to email me, kittie@kittiesart.com. …See More
