No More Surplus Orleans Army Surplus store ad
When I was a kid, coming to Cape Cod for vacation, I didn't give a damn about the sun, sea or beach. I wanted to go to the Orleans Army-Navy Surplus store. It wasn't one of those crappy ones that looks more like the Gap. It was a real surplus store and carried all sorts of incredibly cool stuff. That store made my childhood.

Founded in 1948, my Grandfather took me there, my Dad took me there and I took my son there. They've put it up for sale and are ending an era for a lot of people. Just goes to show that skateboarding isn't the only business that needs local support. If you love something, support it!
