to the Ship's Store
As all good past and present Navy men and women may
remember, each Navy ship has a Ship's Store. While at the time it may have seemed
like they never
had the items you wanted in stock, or they were open only at the most
inconvenient times, they were the only place you could spend your hard earned
cash at sea. They provided you with the ability to get the basic necessities, like
toothpaste, soap and shampoo. At sea they were also the only place you could buy your
gedunk items like candy and soda. Oh, and don't forget those now evil tax free sea store
cigarettes for 10 cents a pack.
Well, you can't find any of those gedunk items at this Ship's Store. But you
can find some of those other items that will remind you of those good old Navy days.
Now you can recapture a piece of the past with some good old fashion memorabilia
items. Many of the old ship stores carried items like tee shirts, patches,
plaques, cigarette lighters and such with the ship's emblem or logo on it.
Probably most old timers had purchased an item or two of this type at one time
or another. However, most of those items have now probably worn out or been lost.
Because many of our
old ships are no longer in commission, these type of items have
become just about irreplaceable. So where can you go to
get some of those items you lost or never took the time to buy? Well right here
We don't have all of the items and we don't yet have them from all of the ships.
After all, there have been many thousands of ships during the history of the US
Navy. But we are trying and will continue to frequently add new ships and
additional products. If your ship is not already on the list, send us an
email to let us know and we will get to it as soon as possible.
In conjunction with a high quality online
printing production company, we have developed a specific line of items that
includes many types of apparel and housewares appropriate for use with
ship's seal/logo. These seals are high quality artwork made from designs
obtained from available sources. When you order from our printing
company there are no minimum orders. You can order just 1 or 1000 of any item.
They’ll fulfill any order size (as long as it’s a whole number).
You can visit Cafe Press, our
online printing company. At Cafe Press there are presently 81 product
choices that are ready to use "as-is". Many of these product choices
are unique and only available at Cafe Press. On several items, they also offer
outstanding volume discounts if you are shopping for a group, reunion or have a
