Need Some Relief From the Sun???

A few years ago when we lived in our previous home we had only one tree in our backyard...and unfortunately it did not give any relief from the sun when sitting or playing on our patio. My son used to love to ride his little car out in his kiddies pool, and we used to love to eat dinner outside on not so steamy hot nights. We had a patio umbrella for when we ate outside, but I liked my son to be in the shade if we were out in the heat of the day. We ended up purchasing a tent from Target that year to use for the summer for relief from the sun. We got in on sale at Target for about $19.99. It only lasted for one summer, as it was not that well made to last year after year. But, it was cheap, and was perfect for what we needed it for!!

About 2.5 years ago we were at The Sport Authority and they had a Quik Shade Canopy on Clearance at the end of the season for about $40 or so. We thought about it and decided to purchase it, as it would definitely last more than 2 years. It was very well made and it was portable, which we liked.
We still have it...and have used it for parties we have had, yard sales, a sidewalk sale we participated in, my cousin has borrowed it once or twice for craft fairs, as did my sister, and sister-in-law. It is still in like-new condition. It came with a carrying bag with wheels...thank goodness as this sucker is a bit heavy!! Plus, the best part is you can set it up and take it down in about 10 minutes or so!!! For us, it definitely was a great investment!!

If you think you may need one...this week The Sport Authority has the Quik Shade Tents on sale this week for 1/2 Price!!! The sale ends on Saturday April 26th. They have 2 different sizes to choose from depending on what size you need.
