I am glad to hear about this place. I was up that way back in October and November doing some hiking near Banner Elk. Just wished that I had known about it then. It is quite a ways from my home in Texas!!

Wow, still open!went there way back, picked up good items. Nice folks. Our realtor is in Newland, had property there way back in 90’s. Used to be good real surplus store in Boone, Mr Miller, WWII USN Pilot. Had store downtown, all kinds of vehicles and parts near Windy Gap on 421 before Boone. Mr Miller is long gone, all his stuff sold off or scrapped.IIRC met him in late 60’s, fine Gentleman. Really sad that the real surplus places are about all gone..
