Looking for a dry and secure space to store a canopy and large folding table (6' x 2'6" with legs that fold under). These items are being held for event use -- our May 1 spring fling and could be used for Village Vancouver or other local community events.  Does anyone have space in their garage or basement? We live in a townhouse. Thanks. Cylia
