Ever since we
started listing patches in Jan 2005, we have learned alot about
patches, how they're made, etc.
We have close
to 100,000 different patches in stock, just ask, we may have what
you're looking for. We would be happy to set-up a special eBay
auction for you.
#1. Our initial
purchase of about 4,000 patches all at one time was from one person
who has a wide variety of patches ranging from the 50's, 60's,
70's, 80's and 90's. Most are extremely thick patches, unique
thread, and real nice feel. There are many theories on these
patches, such overruns, jacket factory orders, productions from
past movies, etc. None of these patches have been worn by active
duty personnel. We will call this group #1.
#1.5 We also
obtained additional patches from this same location which are
slightly different than our first pick-up from Jan 2005. None of
these patches have been worn by active duty personnel. We call this
#2. Because of
the success we had selling unique patches; we went on a country
wide search to find more patches. That search took us thousands of
miles and lots or time trying to find more lost treasures. During
this time we found an old guy name Sam who still has the original
shop that his father had when Sam was a child. I saw the picture of
the shop when Sam was about 10 years old and the shop was an old
military shop and it was full of military articles. It was there
for the troops during WWII in
. He is still
there to date!
We call this group #2.
#3. Among the
search we also found more people in an area outside the gates of
Air Base (now
Clark Development Corp.) served for many years. There's a special
section of town that has at least 50-60 Military type stores that
have patches, knives, parachutes, helmets, hats, boots, uniforms,
and anything military you can think of.
We call this group #3
is a few people
who still to this date make squadron patches on order to order
basis. However, there is one in particular who currently does
embroidery work for several commercial airlines and has been there
in the same location since the 60's and has done squadron and
custom patches for the military base as well as special orders
This vendor can do special orders from
customers, I have an agreement with this vendor to keep the sample
for me from his customers and we list those as we receive them.
We call this group #4
#5. We list
nearly 200 different patches on a daily basis, we have so many
people who want to sell us items online and our retail store, those
acquisitions will be recognized as group #5
#6. Fully hand
machine embroidered patches from this specialist who uses quality
materials. Although the work is done by hand, it appears as
good as computer embroidered. We call this group
PATCH IS FROM GROUP #1.5
