Happy 2023!

Doesn’t even look like a real “year” if you one of those born in the last century. In high school we all were memorized by how old we’d be when the year 2000 hit. Nobody thought about twenty three years beyond that number. “Party like it’s 1999” is about as far as we got. Oh well, just glad a pandemic year isn’t on my headstone. Nice to have survived all that crap. I do feel every bit of loss for the millions who did not however, don’t get me wrong. But you have a slightly different take on all this if you are student of history. Pandemics won’t quit just because we humans don’t like them. Humanity crossed the 8 billion mark, and the world is changing in many new ways. Fun to be on the ride is all. This new year we’re going to try to get some of the products that made us famous back in a normal supply routine, but it’s not guaranteed. If you were not aware already, Service of Supply has no “full time” employees. Just a collection of folks and family who love history and like making stuff. No, we’re not looking for investors. We’re not trying to “grow the brand” or open new warehouses across the planet. We’re not going to be around forever and I’m cool with that. We are going to keep making some unique items to fill out your awesome WWII impression, and I’m going to be selling a lot of the collection I’ve enjoyed for over 25 years. You’ll see some great items up for sale in the coming weeks and months and the prices will surprise you- in a good way. I just want to make my investment back, and take the family out to dinner from time to time. Every item of historical value I’ve picked up over the decades was destined to move from my possession to another collector eventually. That’s the way it is. So I’m pretty pleased to know that my customer base (you) are worth of taking the role of custodian for these amazing artifacts for a few years or decades until you pass them along once again. Cheers to 2023 and beyond!
