My Back Ground:

I have been collecting and selling military collectibles for over 25 years.  I entered the hobby at the age of twelve with a profound interest in history and the inheritance of my Grandfather's WWII souvenirs.  By age nineteen, I was earning extra money for college selling from a rented antique store booth and listing in online auctions.  After college, I was employed with an auction house as a catalog describer and appraiser of military antiques and collectibles.  Since 2008, my wife and I have owned and operate the largest military surplus store in Leavenworth County, Kansas and have maintained this website since 2013.

Not Just a Surplus Store:

Military surplus is a large part of our business.  However, we also carry interesting collectibles to include pocket knives, lighters, old photos, beer and cigarette memorabilia and more.  Something new and interesting enters, and leaves, our shop daily.  My intent is to list a huge selection of our store inventory.  If you do not see what you are looking for, email me.  I might have it in stock.

Accepted Forms of Payment:

In addition to PayPal, we are able to process orders with payment by direct transaction at our store location in Leavenworth, KS, via postal money order sent through the mail, through Mal's E-commerce
, or over the phone with your credit card.  We accept Visa, Master Card, and Discover. 

Our Guarantee:

Unless specified in the description, the item(s) you are purchasing is an original military relic or surplus item.  The German military collectibles section has a separate category for reproductions.  If an item is original, but altered I will do my best to describe this in my description.  If you are in doubt to the originality of an item on my site, feel free to tell me or seek the advice from the many forums found on the internet before purchasing.  I spend an extensive amount of time researching my items before making them available to assure they are period originals, but I do make mistakes and don't mind being called on them.  In this business, reputation is everything and I pride myself in maintaining a good standing within the community.
