They also grabbed some steak, sausages and water-proofing spray, said Taylors General Merchant shop assistant Tracy Zvagulis.
Up to 400 people gathered for the annual homosexual-themed Camp Camp at Vinegar Hill.
Numbers peaked around New Year.
All the campers should be gone by the end of the week if the weather doesn't frighten them off sooner.
Some of the well-decorated tents featured chandeliers, rock pathways and picket fences.
A prize was on offer for the biggest flag pole.
"It's like a little township of their own," Miss Zvagulis said.
She praised the shoppers' general manner.
"They're all so nice when they come in," she said.
"They're easygoing, no stress and have a laugh."
She said it was especially fun to serve the "show-queeny" customers.
"It's a big social thing."
"Normal families" are at the camp as well, Miss Zvagulis said.
"It gets bigger and bigger every year.
"It's the place to be."
