CUSTOM MADE TEPEES
Randy Nelson has opened a business on Birch Street in Westwood handcrafting tepees. It’s called 2 Feathers Tipi. He makes them in several sizes — from miniature for things like doll houses or pets, to a large, 18- to 20-foot tepee that can be used for events and business attractions, and other sizes for just about everything in between. He also rents tepees for camping and other uses — delivery service available. These well-insulated tepees are offered in six tribal designs or can be custom-made. Photo by Valorie Chisholm
