Pennsic happiness!

I FINALLY GOT A PAVILLION FOR PENNSIC! :D

Well, at least a very close approximation of one - at least by mundane standards. I saw it at Ikea with Quincy last weekend, then forgot about it, then was reminded of it today so I stopped after work and bought it.

It's a HALVÖ, a 5-sided gazebo 13' across with polyester walls, about 6'5" at the walls with a huge cathedral roof that's almost 11' tall, including air vent with cover. It's kind of a cross between a yurt and a pavillion, and I LOVE it! Heaven knows if it's Pennsic weather proof, and I'm not thrilled about the polyester, but even if it only lasts one year, the frame is worth making new canvas walls and roof for.

And it's on clearance for a mere $99.00 - POIT!

Pennsic happiness! SCA glee! SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! :D

Ugh, the polyester. You've got a point there. Though it does have much more ventilation than a dome tent, so it shouldn't be too bad. And the additional wall I'll put on it won't be polyester.

I was more thinking about the gaps in it since it doesn't come down to the ground (should I sew loops on the bottom to try to stake the fabric down?), and how a windy day might affect it. I don't have the money to remake all the walls and roof at the moment so I am going to have to live with it for now.

It's going to be so nice to have room to breathe in it! I am so psyched. I won't be using it at Pennsic since I can't go there, but just for weekends in An Tir, so it should be fine for now. I will need to work on making sure the wind and water don't get in, though.

Anyway, I'm glad you posted about it -- and in the SCA context, at that. It's impossible to find info on this gazebo online because IKEA discontinued it and removed it from all of their websites, except for this one in Italian. So, thanks! :)
