I was in North Creek today for the steam train festival and stopped to the Gear Source shop. It's gone. Totally empty and the folks that were just closing the door and leaving in a cube van said he's done. They didn't seem to want to elaborate or talk so I just left. ?? I liked the place. I'll miss it.
Thanks Shaman. I really didn't think that Jeff would skip town with the consignment gear as he always came across as an honest and very helpful person. Running a business in North Creek certainly seems to have its challenges. I wish him good luck with his new job.
Thanks Shaman. Bummer to see the shop gone but good for Jeff. Retail is a tough business.
BTW I had a cab driver the other night who claimed to be a real life Shaman. I said "oh yeah - are you a Darkside Shaman?" He said "oh my gosh no no no no! I do not dare dabble in the dark arts". I said "well that's too bad. I know a Darkside Shaman and he's a pretty cool guy." There wasn't much conversation after that:)
Just waking up from my summer hibernation. Hello Harvey faithful! When I was up at my place this summer, I learned that the Gear Source closed. I saw Jeff at the Barking Spider about a month earlier and he didn't mention anything. Is there any update? I need some skis changed over to NTN and I don't know who to bring them to now? I'll see if Gore's repair shop can do it when I'm up over T-Giving? It's a shame that good shops owned by good people can't make a go of it up there.

I just took my NTNs to Inside Edge in Queensbury. Don't know if they're on your way up, but they do great work.
There is a store going in that brands there own equipment. They have glasses, goggles and poles at this point. I was cool to the idea until I heard there product is made in China. Now I'm not sure how i feel about it.I'll have to check it out next time I'm in north crick. The amount of inventory they are getting is significant. I need me poles so I guess I get a pair there. Wish they could manufacture things around here.
