I'm sad to say that after 13 years of being in business Purple Sage Trading post was closed in October 2006. I'm collecting Social Security, working on house, boat, and car projects and other interests. The building is currently leased to Sterling Black who has a chiropractic practice.
We had a lot of faithful customers over the years and want to thank all of them for their business and support.
Thanks, Sumner
