Today marked the end of my first adventure into being a dealer at a gun show. Taking my surplus surplus, UMPC, and the new UM patches, I had a successful run which will go a long way towards paying my way towards Phoenix in May. What surprised me was what sold.
Patches and Socks.
The new UM Marksman and Infantry patches* sold as well as the traditional UMPC patches along w/ several dealers buying them in bulk for resale from their locations. The big surprise item in demand were socks. I had several bags of US Army socks that I bought in bulk a while back and they went fast and furious. Just goes to show you never can tell.
I also had the pleasure of meeting longtime reader and commenter Longhorn Jeff who came by specifically to see me and picked up a few items for himself. My FOID deficient friend along w/ one of my professors also made it a point to stop by.
*These will go on sale on this site along w/ a few surprise items this week.
