Back to What to Buy & Where to Buy It
August 2001

I'm looking to rent or borrow a parachute to do some Gymboree-like parachute play at a party for 2-3 year olds. I assume it would be too expensive to buy. Any ideas on where I can get one? Jane

I don't know how much they are, but it might not be as much as you think. Try Berkeley Surplus, located on San Pablo on the west side, somewhere between University and Gilman (can't remember exactly where). They're good for all kinds of surplus stuff, including sleeping bags, mattresses, clothes, other camping gear, etc. Also, large table cloths or sheets can work well enough with a smaller group. Good luck! Dawn
