RE: Spring

That sounds like an easy fix for the wind problem!  I wouldn't think
anything like a ground staple (unless you have grommets) would be a good
idea for the longevity of the side flaps.

It's very nice and roomy (10'x10') and will be a real big help if I do sell
at farmer's markets and the like.

The price wasn't too bad at $200 either.  

My only complaint (other than difficulty setting up for once person) is that
wind can come in through the bottom; to fix that I'd probably have to lay a
2x4x8 along the extra fabric on the side and put a cinder block on top.
