• Square Dance Fun Badges

    From DARYL STOUT@CAPCITY to ALL USERS on Fri Sep 17 00:01:00 2010
    Here's a list of "square dance fun badges"...courtesy of The Badge Hut,
    2512 East Renfro, Burleson, TX 76028...phone/fax to (817) 295-2769. A
    mobile shop is available for square dance specials. These badges are 85
    cents each. Fun bar badges to hold these dangles are $2.50 each. Tax is
    not included. Other badges are also available...call or write for details.
    I've done business with them quite a bit, and they do have a wide selection
    of square dance items. I'm not sure if they're still in business or not,
    but other square dance vendors should have most, if not all of these.

    I am not sure if they are still in business or not...but I did earn
    several of these when I was dancing from 1986 to 2002. After a 5 year
    hiatus, I resumed square dancing in 2007...three months after my wife
    died.

    Here's a list of "square dance fun badges"...courtesy of The Badge Hut,
    2512 East Renfro, Burleson, TX 76028...phone/fax to (817) 295-2769. A
    mobile shop is available for square dance specials. These badges are 85
    cents each. Fun bar badges to hold these dangles are $2.50 each. Tax is
    not included. Other badges are also available...call or write for details.
    I've done business with them quite a bit, and they do have a wide selection
    of square dance items. I'm not sure if they're still in business or not,
    but other square dance vendors should have most, if not all of these.

    I am not sure if they are still in business or not...but I did earn
    several of these when I was dancing from 1986 to 2002. After a 5 year
    hiatus, I resumed square dancing in 2007...three months after my wife
    died.
