January 2022 – First I pray that someone took the beer away from 2022 on December 31st so it couldn’t say to 2020 and 2021, “You think that was something? Hold my beer and watch this!”. It doesn’t matter to us whether you’ve had your shot or booster or not. We believe in the freedom of choice. All of us need to be able to tell the truth from an opinion or targeted misinformation. We just ask you to learn the truth and non-truths about both sides of the National Discussion on the Covid-19 Vaccine and make an educated, thought-out decision. Whichever that may be.
All of us here at Papas Toybox hope everyone had a great Christmas and a Happy New Year. Unfortunately, the new year includes having your health insurance deductible and co-pay reset to zero. OK, with all of that out of the way, let’s get down to business.
As we said last month, January begins a lot of gun show activity. Minnesota has the Fairmont Show on January 8th & 9th, The Crocodile Productions Show in Zimmerman January 14th & 15th, The Southeast Minnesota Military Show January 15th & 16th in Cannon Falls put on by the North Central Military Collectors Association, The MWCA Show in Rochester MN January 22nd & 23rd, the Hibbing Show January 28th & 29th promoted by AC Expos, and the Crocodile Show in Fridley January 29th & 30th.
Iowa also will have more frequent shows throughout January. Harlan - January 8th & 9th, Council Bluffs - January 14th thru 16th, Davenport & Vail – January 15th & 16th, Des Moines – January 21st thru 23rd, and Cherokee – January 22nd & 23rd. Wisconsin has 17 shows listed on the gunshowtrader.com website.
Inventory, inventory, and more inventory is pretty much all we can see downstairs right now. We are working through 3 collections we recently purchased with about 1000 items amongst them. The picture posted with this post shows just some of what needs worked on. The pile is 8’ X 4’ X 6’ or 192 Cubic Feet of gear. Some of the items are coming with us to shows and others are going straight to our website for sale there. Our tables will always have new product at every show.
If you are aware of any collections of US field gear, bayonets, fighting knives, or folding or fixed blade knives for sale please reach out to us. We are always on the search for new inventory and greatly appreciate anyone that presents us with the opportunity to purchase more. As always, when Papas Toybox makes an offer on a collection presented to us, we make that offer for the collection in its entirety. We never cherry pick the best and leave you with the rest.
Thank you for being our customer. Papa and Boss Lady
