A Thank You to the Crew

Good morning campers! Kris and Oz here with a love note for our fabulous staff. We just came back from a wonderful vacation. As much as we love being in our beautiful town and being in the shop, it’s a good thing to get away from time to time, so the two of us took off for a whole week! And one thing that made it great was knowing the store was in great hands and that everyone that came in would be very well taken care of. So thank you Fabulous Staff!
